Marinate the chicken breast
Place the chicken breast in a large bowl and add in the marinade ingredients as listed above. 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tbsp lemon juice, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 tsp cracked black pepper.

Grill the chicken
Then fire up the grill and cook the chicken over medium heat and cook both sides of the chicken until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Then place the chicken on a plate and cover it with foil and let it rest for about 10 minutes so the juices absorb back into it. Then slice it up.

Start with the chopped lettuce, the cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber pitted kalamata olives, feta cheese, and red onion. Then top with crushed pita chips, sliced chicken, and a good quality Greek salad dressing. Serve immediately.
