  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper (about 1 large)
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoncini peppers
  • 1.5 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/3 cup)

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Place baguette cubes on a baking sheet; coat with cooking spray. Broil 2 minutes or until edges are browned, turning once.

3. Reduce oven temperature to 425°.

4. Combine oregano and next 5 ingredients (through crushed red pepper) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk; set aside.

5. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken evenly with black pepper and salt. Place chicken in pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Place pan in oven, and bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove pan from oven. Let chicken stand 5 minutes; slice thinly across the grain.

6. Add bread cubes, lettuce, bell pepper, pepperoncini peppers, and feta to bowl with oregano mixture; toss well. Place about 1 1/3 cups salad on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with about 3 ounces chicken.
