Even though it's fall, I still enjoy eating bright, fresh (and dead simple) meals. Today's recipe for Greek chicken with quick pickles, tomatoes, and tzatziki takes just 35 minutes from start to finish and is filled with flavors that seem like they took hours to create -- what's better than that? While this dinner is delicious with rice, I also love serving it over a warm pita or flatbread. And remember to hold on to your leftovers for a tasty room-temperature lunch! Sarah's Tip of the Day: Soaking red onions in vinegar mellows their sharpness, leaving them spicy and slightly sweet.

Ingredients:
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp red-wine vinegar
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 pounds total), cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tsp finely grated lemon zest, plus 4 teaspoons lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
2 tsp dried oregano
