Instructions

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.
