22.5 pounds uncooked chicken breasts

1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup lemon juice

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon paprika

Tzatziki Sauce-

1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoon fresh dill, finely minced

1 clove garlic, minced fine

1 cup shredded cucumber, well squeezed to remove extra water

Greek Salad-

1/2 medium red onion, finely diced

3 cups small chopped cucumbers (about 2 large cucumbers)

1 1/2 cup small chopped tomatoes (about 23 medium tomatoes)

2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, minced

1/2 cup small chopped red bell pepper

3/4 cup kalamata olives, cut in half

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

For serving-

Crumbled feta cheese

Hummus, if desired



In a ziplock bag or a bowl combine all the ingredients except the chicken breasts. Whisk till combined. Add the chicken and then toss to coat evenly. Marinade in the fridge for at least 1 hour, but preferably overnight. Pre-heat oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray it with cooking spray. Lay chicken out evenly on the sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes before chopping into pieces.

Tzatziki Sauce-

Shred the cucumber and lay out on a paper towel and let sit. Mix the remaining ingredients together and then blot the cucumber with more paper towels till it looks relatively dry. Add the cucumber to the sauce and stir to combine. Let sit in fridge for at least an hour or up to 3 days before serving. It’s typically good in the fridge for about 5-7 days total.

Greek Salad-

Make sure all the veggies are in very small bite-sized pieces and add all ingredients to a large bowl. Toss to combine.

For serving-

In a pita or on a flat bread (like naan bread) add a spoonful of tzatziki sauce and humus, if desired. Add a large spoonful of cubed chicken followed by the Greek salad. Top with feta cheese and enjoy.
