A delicious summer Greek rice dish. Perfect for the summer, but can also be eaten in the other months. The combination of rice with chicken and vegetables makes this salad a complete meal that can be eaten hot or cold.

  • Meanwhile, mix the butter, chili pepper and garlic into a herb butter.
  • Cut the chicken into strips and marinate with a good dash of olive oil and Greek herbs
  • Put the chicken breasts in a hot grill pan with some oil or butter and fry the chicken for 5 minutes on each side
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and place in a bowl and mix with half of the spicy herb butter, set aside so that the herb butter melts well over the chicken.
