Greek Chicken Cutlets
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a really great summer recipe, very refreshing, quick and easy! There are also a lot of different ways to modify it to your taste and desire. Here is the original recipe from Martha Stewart.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives
4 oz. (1 cup) coarsely crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
2-3 Tbs. olive oil
Coarse salt and ground peppers
1 1/2 lbs. thin chicken cutlets
In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, olives, feta, mint, and 1 Tbs. oil. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.
Heat a grill pan over high; brush lightly with oil. Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Cook, working in batches as necessary, until chicken is cooked through, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Top chicken with tomato mixture and serve.
I have tried making it as stated above and have also tried baking chicken breasts and using the same topping, both ways are good. I would think this would also be great with grilled or BBQ'd chicken.
Also, I have found that it seems slightly more fresh if you don't mix the olive oil with the tomato mixture as it tends to get a little soggy, so I personally prefer it without.
I usually use the pre crumbled Feta cheese with Mediterranean herbs mixed in for this recipe (I get mine from Trader Joe's).
