Greek Chicken Salad

I realized I wouldn’t make it outside today for a formal style shoot, so I decided to shoot at home after I  satiated my hunger.

In between studying and cleaning, I’m still hanging art, breaking down boxes, laying down rugs and worst of all – mounting shelves. Just because I create medical devices doesn’t mean I’m handy, alright?

I’m forever being held to that expectation … “wait, you’re an engineer, so you MUST be know how to _______ [insert stupid challenge]!!” No. I don’t.

Mounting the shelving for my shoes was WORK today. Even though I have a stud-finder, I still managed to create 2 huge craters in my wall from screws and brackets not being well held in.

I’m not handy, dammit! It goes beyond common sense. 

As a break from what was turning out to be a “what the Fuuuuuuuuuuuck!?!” kind of afternoon, and with the incessant prompting of hunger pains, I whipped up a Greek Chicken Salad.

Greek Chicken Salad

What I Used:

2 Skinless Chicken Breasts. Cucumber. Feta Cheese Crumbles. Champagne Vinigrette. Cherry Tomatoes. Red Onion.  Garbanzo Beans. Arugula. Olive Oil. Salt. Pepper. Garlic Powder. Several Skewers.

What I Did:

The Chicken

Super Simple. I seasoned the chicken breasts with Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder & Chili Powder [even distributions] and let it rest while I got the broiler going.

Then I sliced the Chicken into cubes and mounted them on mini stakes.

So done…I drizzled the skewers with Olive Oil and inserted them to broil for 5 mins on each side.

Meanwhile I made the Salad.

The Salad

Greek Salad is typically made with Romaine Lettuce, I know, but really – who cares? I had more Arugula than Romaine so I said, F it, chop it up!

Chopped and mixed: 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes, 1/4 cup Red Onion, 3 cups Arugula, 1/4 cup Cucumber & 1/2 cup Garbanzo Beans.

Then in a small bowl, I whipped 2 tbsp of Greek non-fat plain Yogurt in with 1 tbsp of Champagne Vinaigrette .

Spooned the Yogurt dressing in with the now-cooked chicken, gave it a good toss, seasoned with Salt & freshly ground Pepper and ended with a sprinkle of Feta.
