Chicken Strawberry Salad

Here is another great summer salad. Lots of fruit, chicken, and easy to prepare.

Ingredients (for 2 servings):
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper
1/2 small iceberg lettuce, cut into 1 inch squares
300 g strawberries, quartered
1 14-ounce can apricots (or fresh apricots), quartered
1  10-cm (4 inches) piece cucumber, quartered lengthwise and sliced
100 g (3-4 ounces) greek yogurt
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp pickled green pepper (or fresh black pepper)
1 dash sugar

Whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, (green) pepper, salt, and sugar. Arrange lettuce, fruits, and cucumber on plates. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring often, until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange chicken on salad and serve with dressing and bread, if desired.
