Easy Summer Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Cutlets with Greek Salsa

IMG_2037

I know I have been on a Greek kick lately, but this recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. My kids love Greek-style ingredients: feta, kalamata olives and fresh herbs so this is perfect served alongside chicken cutlets. You can grill these outside or use a grill or saute pan if you wish. This Greek Salsa is also great served with fish, shrimp, steak or pork.
