Grilled Greek Chicken Salad Recipe

A Greek salad just got so much better in my book.

The secret? Super juicy, perfectly charred chicken thighs seasoned just perfectly with a dry spice rub of oregano, basil, thyme, paprika and garlic powder.

Nope, no hours of marinating here. Simply season your chicken and throw them right onto the grill.

While you do that, you can also throw on some pita bread for serving – might as well while you have the grill all fired up!

Serve with chopped romaine, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado, red onion, olives and feta along with the creamiest tzatziki dressing ever.

SO SO GOOD.
