If there's one dinner that I crave time and time again, it's definitely a Greek salad. There's something about the simplicity and freshness of a tomato, cucumber, olive, and red onion salad with a heavy hand of feta that always sounds SO delicious at the end of a long day. This salad is taken to the next level with golden brown baked pita wedges and yogurt-marinated chicken breasts. A brief marinade in the yogurt helps to tenderize the protein while imparting a rich flavor throughout. If you don't feel like firing up the grill, you can always cook the chicken on a grill pan, on a cast iron, or in the oven. Whatever works for your weeknight hustle!

For the chicken, combine olive oil, yogurt, lemon zest and juice, sherry vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Whisk until emulsified. Add chicken breasts, cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
Meanwhile, make the pita wedges. Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss pita wedges with olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Spread in one layer on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and fragrant, about 15 minutes.
Make the salad. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss.
Once the chicken has marinated, preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Gently wipe off excess marinade and discard. Grill chicken breasts until charred, golden brown, and firm to the touch, about 7-8 minutes per side. An internal thermometer should read 165°F. Let rest for 5 minutes on a baking rack, then slice. Top salad with grilled chicken and serve with pita wedges immediately.
