This is one of many recipes using my Green Goddess Chicken thighs, and I’ve recently been obsessed with adding charred potatoes on my salad!


Units Scale

For the chicken:

  • 1 lb chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt (optional, I like to use to to develop a slight crust, you can replace with oil)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Zest and juice of half Meyer lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1.5 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • Black pepper

For the salad:

  • 2 heads of romaine, chopped
  • 1/4 lb mini potatoes, sliced 1/8” thick
  • 4 basil leaves, chiffonade cut
  • 2 Persian cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


  1. If you haven’t yet marinated the chicken, do so. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and let sit while you work on the other components.
  2. Prep the veggies – chop the romaine, thinly slice the potatoes, cut the cucumbers, and chiffonade the basil.
  3. Heat a large saute pan on medium high heat and add a tablespoon of oil. Add the thinly sliced potatoes and the chicken (on separate sides of the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the potatoes are golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. Add salt and pepper to the potatoes and give it a mix. Dice the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  4. While the potatoes and chicken are cooking, make the dressing. Combine all ingredients in a mason jar or bowl and whisk to combine until emulsified.
  5. Place the lettuce in a serving bowl. Top with the cucumbers, cooked potatoes, chopped chicken, basil, and a couple tablespoons of the dressing. Mix, then enjoy!
