Greek Chicken Cutlets


When 15 minutes is all you have, saute a quick-cooking cut, like thin chicken cutlets, and top it with a fresh, Greek-flavored mix of feta, olives, tomatoes, and mint.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, April 2007


  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, coarsely crumbled (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds thin chicken cutlets (about 8)


  1. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, olives, feta, mint, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

  2. Heat a grill pan over high; brush lightly with oil. Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Cook, working in batches as necessary, until chicken is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Top chicken with tomato mixture, and serve.

Cook's Notes

Instead of a grill pan for the cutlets, you can use a large skillet over high heat, adding 1 tablespoon oil per batch.

    Love the recipes and the creative ideas. I hate the in-your-face design of the website. Pop-up ads, cover the controls for the videos that start on their own and then they follow you as you scroll!! It took a concerted effort to read the recipes without SOMETHING popping up uninvited. Look, I'm already using your website, why is there an ad impeding my progress asking me to use the site I'm already using?

    I can't even begin to describe how simple and delicious this dish is. If you like to toil over dinner for hours, move on. Otherwise, try this.

    Very good and very easy. I added large diced cucumber and garbanzo beans. Because my little ones aren't very fond of mint I finely chopped it and diluted it with oregano. Clean plates all around!

    I substituted basil for mint and this was very tasty. Quick and very easy. I will definitely make this again.

    Couldn't find chicken cutlets, so I used 6 veal scallopini cutlets, added the juice of 1/2 lemon to the Feta cheese mixture as suggested, and otherwise followed directions exactly. Terrific! Served with corn on the cob, paired with Messina Hof Merlot for a lovely summer supper.

    I added juice of 1/2 lemon and it was absolutely delicious. A real Greek flavor. My husband loved it and can't wait to have it again. Thanks Martha for a great addition to my recipes. I'll use the topping over other meats as well..

    Abslutely the perfect summer dish, light and flavorful. So glad I decided not to add brown rice, no need. So delicious, will be in arsenal of favorite dishes to cook.
