(Serves 4)


• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon dried oregano
• ½ teaspoon sea salt
• 4 chicken breasts (boneless/skinless)

• 1 cup plain Skyr yogurt
• Juice of half a lemon
• 1oz anchovy filet (minced but optional)
• ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
• ½ teaspoon garlic powder
• ½ teaspoon onion powder
• Salt and pepper to taste

• 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
• 1 large Romaine lettuce, chopped
• 1 avocados, pitted and diced
• ¼ cup fresh parmesan cheese, shaved (optional)
• 2 tablespoons chives, diced


  • Marinate the chicken in a plastic bag with oil, oregano and sea salt for 1
    hour in the fridge.
  • Mix together dressing ingredients and set aside
  • Take the chicken out of the fridge and let rest for about 15 minutes to get to
    room temperature
  • Heat a large skillet or a grill over medium-high heat. Cook the marinated
    chicken for a cook for 8-10 minutes without moving. Avoid pressing and
    prodding. After 6-8 minutes flip the chicken and cook on the second side
    until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes more.
  • While the chicken is cooking, boil the eggs. Chop the lettuce into large
    pieces and slice the avocado into chunks.
  • Once the chicken is done, remove from the pan/grill and transfer to a cutting
    board. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, then slice and set aside. Peel and
    slice the eggs into quarters and set aside.
  • For assembling, place the chopped lettuce and avocado in a large salad bowl.
    Add eggs and sliced chicken.
  • Drizzle the prepared dressing all over the chicken. Sprinkle with grated
    parmesan cheese and top with chives. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper, if needed.
