Herby Oven Fried Chicken with Mediterranean Salad

This recipe packs a wonderful flavor punch because there are so many delicious Mediterranean ingredients working in harmony. This is also a great example of a healthy fried chicken meal.

While the chicken is oven frying you can assemble the salad, then just add the chicken pieces while they are still warm, for a healthy yet hearty lunch or dinner.

Cut chicken breasts in half (lengthwise) so you end up with 6 portions. If you like, you can cut them again so you have 12 smaller portions, but that is up to you. You can also cut the chicken after it has finished cooking. Once the marinade has had time to penetrate into the meat, you will dip the chicken into a Parmesan and breadcrumb mixture and then it is ready to go in the oven. The cooking time varies depending on the size of the chicken pieces and also on your oven so keep an eye on it. It can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes to cook, but 30 minutes is the average.

The chicken is served on a bed of salad made from salad leaves, mandarin orange segments, red onion and tomato, and then you can sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top and serve right away while the chicken is still warm from the oven. This makes a delicious lunch or is hearty enough to be served as an evening meal. Continue reading
