Chopped Greek Chicken Salad

I discovered a new (to me) recipe for a Chopped Greek Chicken Salad the other day, and decided to fix it for dinner for my husband and myself.  Wow!  We LOVED it!Chopped Greek Chicken Salad / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
We each had a huge bowl of salad, complete with grilled chicken, feta cheese, kalamata olives, crunchy cucumbers, etc. with a light vinaigrette dressing to top if off, and it was a complete meal for us!

The flavor of the salad was amazing… and guess what?  It’s a Weight Watchers recipe, so if you are looking to have a light (but filling) meal, a low calorie or Smart Points recipe (6 Points!), then I would highly recommend this main course salad!  As an added bonus… it’s incredibly EASY to prepare, so it’s a WIN-WIN.  Here’s how to create this delicious salad:

The first thing I did was cook the chicken. I used an indoor grill (which only took about 8 minutes), but you can cook the chicken breast any way you would like, or use leftovers.  Season chicken lightly with salt/pepper. Grill or roast chicken breasts (I used 2 thin breasts). When done, set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Once cool, cut into thin slices. Set aside.
**TIP: While chicken is cooking, prep/chop/slice veggies.

Divide the chopped romaine in half and place in bowls or on dinner plates.  Divide and add chopped (and peeled) cucumber and sliced green onions.

This was a very filling salad, and I will definitely be making it again!  I LOVE that even a “lighter than normal” salad can be filled with so many wonderful flavors!  My husband is already wondering when we will have this one again. Soon… real soon!
