To prepare a Greek salad with chickentake a few tomatoes, several small cucumbers, "Feta" cheese, gram 60 (but you can take more) and the head of purple onions. Do not forget about the main ingredient - half a kilo of chicken fillet. Further you will need oil for frying (it is better to use olive, as for filling), a spoonful of lemon juice, a gram of 80 olives without pits and without a filling. For spiciness, take a spoonful of oregano (you can have a dried one, you can have a fresh one), a few cloves of garlic, a pinch of pepper and greens (parsley or any other of your choice).
Let's start cooking. The fillet should be washed, cut the skin and fat.

Ideally, the chicken can be marinated in the evening, and in the morning to make a salad.
The necessary time has passed and you have pulled out the chicken. Now it needs to be fried in a frying pan or on a grill. If in the first case you can use aromatic marinated oil for cooking, then in the second it needs to be drained. Since the whole chicken will be prepared for a long time, cut it into convenient pieces, plates or cubes.
After frying, the chicken should be put on a napkin, allow to cool slightly and drain excess oil.
Let's start processing the vegetables. They need to be washed, if there is a need to peel off the onions (onions and cucumbers) and cut into large cubes or large arbitrary pieces. Add the fried pieces of chicken, sliced or torn greens and pour all the oil. Top with sprinkled cheese and chopped in half or circles of olives. Here, in fact, everything - a Greek salad with chicken is ready.It should be noted that the bird does not have tobe fried - there are options when adding smoked or boiled chicken.
