It takes less than 20 minutes to prepare this flavorful one-dish dinner featuring Greek seasoned chicken tenderloins combined with romaine lettuce, olives, beets and feta. Drizzle the salad with a simple vinaigrette dressing that ties all the flavors together. Using already-cooked beets really cuts down on kitchen time. Look for them in the refrigerated section of the produce area in your supermarket. If you can find organic beets, they will be even more flavorful.
