Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. To roast the potatoes-Place potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil all over potatoes and toss to coat. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake in oven for about 25-30 minutes until soft and browned. Remove from oven, cover with foil to keep warm and set aside.
  3. While potatoes are roasting, place chicken tenders in a bowl. Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons all over the chicken. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 15 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  4. To make the Greek salad salsa-Place all salsa ingredients in a bowl and toss with dressing, lemon juice and oregano. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. To cook chicken: In a large nonstick pan, heat 1 teaspoon oil. Add chicken and cook about 3 minutes on each side over medium-high heat until completely cook through.
  6. To serve: Add the chicken to a large serving plate. Place the roasted potatoes all around. Top with Greek salad salsa. Sprinkle all over the top with feta cheese and olives.
  7. If you don’t plan to serve this dish all at once, only toss in dressing the portion you’ll use and store the leftovers separately in the refrigerator. Toss the remaining Greek salsa when ready to serve the next day. Left-overs are yummy to pack for lunch!

    Shopping Tip
    I found a mesh bag of teeny tiny potatoes at Trader Joe’s. Look for them at your supermarket or use small new potatoes (red potatoes) un-peeled and cut into four’s.

    Fat-free feta cheese is sold in most supermarkets either in the cheese aisle or deli’s gourmet cheese section. Trader Joe’s also sells this cheese.

    Ken’s Lite Caesar Dressing and Cardini’s Light Caesar Vinaigrette can be found in the salad dressing aisle of most supermarkets.
