How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 425°.

Step 4

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

I finally got around to making this salad for dinner tonight, and the kids and I thought it was great! The dressing was perfectly balanced, with great flavor (similar to a Caesar salad), and not too heavy. I didn't bother de-crusting the bread and thought it turned out just fine that way. I would agree with the suggestions of adding some cherry tomatoes, a few olives, and/or a little chopped cucumber, though certainly these additions are not essential as the salad stands quite well on its own. Definitely a keeper and I will be making this again; would be a great company dish as well. Looks impressive and doesn't take a lot of work.

Tasty Salad Meal

Tasty, easy to prepare and with lots of different colors and textures, this salad made a wonderful weeknight meal. I had leftover chicken and sweet/hot peppers from another meal, so I used those in place of the pepperoncini and cooking the chicken breast. I especially liked the salad dressing, and doubled the amounts so I could have some fresh-made salad dressing on hand. Like other reviewers, I added some cucumber and olives, and did not bother removing the crusts from the bread. I love the fact that there are so many variations possible. Even leaving off the chicken, and adding garbanzos to make this vegetarian would keep the Greek-inspired tastes and the nutrition stats reasonable.

Slight changes made; I felt the dressing needed a little salt, added Greek seasoning to the chicken and also added English cucumbers. Good filling meal.

I have made this salad twice with the following changes: I roasted the pepper, did not take the crust off of the bread, added some thinly sliced red onion and some chopped English cucumber. I used one breast for the 2 of us. I also used 4 cups of chopped lettuce for 2 people. I know this is CL but I can't believe that 3 cups of lettuce is ok for 4 servings as a main dish.

Easy recipe and outstanding taste. Short on time, I used store bought garlic cheese croutons instead of making them. Tasted just fine. Really delicious salad!

This was very flavorful. It reminded me of a caesar salad but with the greek touches. DH suggested a few olives next time and I'd like to toss in some cherry tomatoes. Loved the prep for the chicken breasts, they came out perfectly.

I don't often review recipes. However, this one was so good, here I am. Flavors are great and it would be good for a light company dinner. I made the chicken ahead as I was cooking for another meal and just warmed it in the microwave. I made the croutons ahead too. If you are really in a hurry you could make the dressing ahead, use grocery store chicken, prepared croutons and still have a great meal. This recipe is a keeper.!

Made this one exactly by the recipe. Grilled the chicken along with other meats for the weeks meals ahead of time. Easy, tasty and very quick meal.

Lots of great, fresh flavor. Cutting crust off hard baguette was a complete nuisance.

Good salad for a dinner. I used banana peppers in place of pepperoncini peppers and added a little honey to the dressing.
