Instructions
Chicken
  1. Place raw, chopped chicken breasts in a large bowl with olive oil, lemon juice,  parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper.  Toss to coat the chicken breasts.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium -high heat. (It's helpful to use a skillet with a lid, if you have one).  Once pan is hot, add the marinated chicken breast.  Reduce heat to medium and cook until chicken is slightly browned.  Make sure to occasionally stir the chicken for even cooking.  It will take about 15-20 minutes to cook.

Salad
  1. While the chicken is cooking, arrange the romaine and mixed greens on a large platter.  Evenly distribute the tomatoes, sliced red onion, kalamata olives, cucumber, feta, artichoke hearts, and hummus.  Add the chicken when it is done cooking.  Drizzle with salad dressing.

Greek Vinaigrette Dressing
  1. Place all ingredients in a mason jar, secure with lid, and shake.  You could also place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine.  

  2. Drizzle salad with dressing as desired.
