Chicken
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes

Marinade
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons crushed dried oregano

Feta Dipping Sauce
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Place chicken in a non-metallic bowl or resealable plastic bag. Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl; pour over chicken, and cover or close bag. Refrigerate 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, place all Feta Dipping Sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
