I love summer time. It means more time outside, and more home-cooked meals for our family. One of our go-tos for recipe inspiration is fresh chicken. Foster Farms asked me to share about their changes to their chicken and I’d like to share a new recipe with you. I love looking for new ways to use favorites we already love and since we’re doing a fair amount of entertaining this summer, I wanted to think outside the box.
Let’s start with pita bread. Stay with me. I’m not making pitas stuffed with chicken salad. That would be too easy. Instead, I decided to make an amazing Greek Inspired Chicken Nachos. Using fresh ingredients I already have on hand, I can create a summery meal that’s perfect for my family or if we’re entertaining guests. Foster Farms Chicken is a great start to a delicious dinner.
I generally pick up my Foster Farms chicken at Costco, though it’s at most area grocery stores like Safeway or Fred Meyer. Did you know that Foster Farms is the West Coast’s leading poultry producer? Their chickens are all locally grown and American Humane Certified with three different fresh chicken lines available in California, Oregon and Washington. More and more parents are saying they want “organic” or “no antibiotics” for their chicken, and Foster Farm provides those choices with their trio of fresh chicken products include: Foster Farms® Fresh & Natural, Foster Farms® Simply Raised (without antibiotics) and Foster Farms® Organic.
Greek Inspired Chicken Nachos
1 pound Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken Breasts
1 package of pita bread, cut into triangles
1 cup of tzatziki (prepared fresh or purchased)
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
2-3 fresh tomatoes, diced
¼ cup olives
½ cup feta cheese
1. Preheat a grill pan medium-high on the stove.
2. Brush the grill pan with olive oil using a pastry brush.
3. Sprinkle fresh chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place the chicken in the pan.
4. Grill the chicken without moving them or about five minutes, until the undersides develop golden brown grill marks. Carefully flip the chicken using a pair of tongs and cook on the second sides for another five minutes. Remove the chicken from the grill pan when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees using a meat thermometer. Let chicken rest, then cut it into bite sized chunks.
Arrange your pita triangles on a plate, then drizzle with tzatziki. Top with cucumbers, tomatoes and olives. Finish with your chicken and garnish with feta. Then enjoy!
