This salad is packed with incredible flavors, and it is Whole30! This salad is a great entree for any night of the week.


For the Whole30 Green Goddess Dressing MAGIC ELIXIRSâ„¢:

  • 3 oil-packed anchovy filets
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped fine
  • 1 cup Whole30 mayo
  • 2 handfuls basil leaves (about1/32/3 cup fairly tightly packed)
  • 4 Tbsps fresh tarragon leaves
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • 3 Tbsps lemon juice
  • 5 Tbsps olive oil
  • 2 Tbsps red wine vinegar
  • 2 pinches salt

For the Passport Chicken Marinade:

  • 5 Tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsps dried oregano
  • 5 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

For Everything else:


Make the dressing: Blend all the dressing ingredients to combine well. Taste the dressing and add salt, pepper, and more lemon juice for extra tang, if needed. Adjust fresh herbs to taste.

Make the chicken marinade: combine the olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper together.

This next step is tricky because you are going to use a sharp knife to cut the chicken breasts lengthwise, so be careful. For ease of cutting, freeze the chicken breasts for about an hour or two until they’re just partially frozen. Cut the breasts into strips, by laying them flat on a board, and covering most of the breast with one hand. Then slowly cut the breast lengthwise. Then cut again, so you end up with 3 thin slices.

Salt and pepper thoroughly. Place in a container with the marinade and marinate for an hour, or longer, depending on who much time you have.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, heat 1 Tbsps of olive oil. Sauté the chicken pieces 2 minutes on each side.

Assemble your masterpiece beautifully on a platter.

  1. What brand is that perfect little pourer?

    1. Wish that I could remember where I got it!!

  2. How long would you say the Green Goddess dressing keeps in the fridge?

    1. I would say 1 week.

  3. How many servings would you say this recipe is? Thanks Ms. Teri!

    1. I would say that it depends how hungry you are – but it is typically about 4.

    1. 💌💌💌

    1. Thanks for sharing my dish

  4. This chicken was fabulous! I made the recipe twice in one week, which is totally out of character for me since I like to try new recipes. Short list of ingredients that most people have on hand already and simple to prepare.
    Thanks for sharing and creating such wonderful recipes Teri!

  5. Hi! Can I use dried parsley? I can’t find fresh at my store 🙁 I have the other ingredients fresh though

    1. no You absolutely cannot… Fresh parsley is the way to go , 100% of the time

  6. Teri, Can I marinade the chicken overnight? Or should it only be for a few hours…didn’t know because of the lemon juice. I feel like sometimes recipes say don’t add the lemon juice until the end because it can breakdown the protein too rapidly.

    1. yes overnight is good ..All recipes are different but this is fine overnight

  7. This is soooo good, my gosh, thanks!
