A Note On The Ingredients Needed

What’s better than a simple and quick dinner recipe that requires only a few easy-to-find ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen? Here is a list of the ingredients that you will need:

  • Chicken Thighs – I used bone-in skin-on chicken thighs. They stay moist and tender during roasting and have more flavor than chicken breasts.
  • Zucchini – A medium-sized zucchini or yellow squash is used in this recipe.
  • Bell Pepper – You can use a mix of red and green bell peppers to add more flavor and color to the dish. Bell peppers have a slightly sweet flavor and a crisp texture.
  • Red Onion – yellow onion is just fine as well.
  • Tomatoes – use your favorite type of tomatoes.
  • Olives – Kalamata olives are used in this recipe to add a salty and slightly tangy flavor to the dish. You can also use other types of olives if you prefer.
  • Feta Cheese – Feta cheese has a salty and tangy flavor that pairs well with the other flavors in the dish, and adds a distinctly Greek flavor to the meal.

For The Greek Chicken Marinade

The Greek-inspired seasonings, such as oregano, lemon, and feta cheese, add a burst of delicious flavors to the dish.

Greek Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner Ingredients
  • Olive Oil – The olive oil serves as the base of the marinade and helps the seasonings stick to the chicken while adding great flavor.
  • Lemon – adds a bright, tangy flavor. It also helps to tenderize the chicken.
  • Garlic Cloves – use fresh garlic for an intense flavor. It’s a staple in Greek cooking and adds depth to the dish. You can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic if you don’t have it on hand.
  • Dried Oregano and Thyme – They are commonly used in Greek cooking and add complexity to the dish.
  • Mustard – You can use different types of mustard like whole-grain mustard, spicy brown mustard, or honey mustard to add a unique flavor to the marinade.
  • Salt and Pepper – Adjust the amount of salt and pepper to your taste preferences,
  • Parsley – You can use other fresh herbs like cilantro, mint, or basil to garnish the dish and add a fresh flavor.

How To Make Greek Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

Once you see how easy it’s to prepare this delicious Greek sheet pan chicken dinner, you will want to make it over and over again. So here are the instructions that you need to follow:

Prepare The Marinade

Add the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano, thyme, mustard, salt, and pepper to a bowl and mix using a whisker until well combined.

Marinate The Chicken Thighs

Pat dry the chicken thighs and add them to a bowl, pour the marinade and mix until each chicken thigh is well coated with the marinade.

Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes to enhance the flavors.

Prepare The Vegetables

Make sure to slice the vegetables evenly so that they cook evenly. This ensures that they will be tender and caramelized, but not overcooked or undercooked.

Then, spread the vegetables on a baking dish and mix them with the rest of the marinade.

Baking Time

Add the chicken thighs to the baking sheet, black olives, and crumbled feta cheese.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F. Garnish with fresh parsley, and enjoy.

How To Cut Vegetables For Roasting

When cutting the vegetables for this sheet pan recipe, try to make them as uniform in size as possible so that they cook at the same rate.

  • Bell peppers: Cut the peppers into 1-inch chunks.
  • Red onions: Cut the onions into wedges or chunks that are about 1 inch wide.
  • Zucchini: Slice it up into strips or half-moons.
  • Cherry tomatoes: Leave the cherry tomatoes whole or cut them in half if they are very large.

Tips and Variations

  • Use skin-on chicken thighs to keep the chicken moist while it cooks.
  • Don’t overcook the chicken and vegetables; Otherwise, you will end up with dried chicken thighs and mushy vegetables.
  • Marinating the chicken in the Greek-inspired marinade before cooking is essential to infuse it with flavor and keeps it moist during cooking.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan to ensure that all the ingredients cook evenly. You can use two pans if you cook for a big crowd.
  • If you like things spicy, try adding some red pepper flakes to the marinade or sprinkling them over the vegetables before roasting.
  • If you want to make a vegetarian version of this dish, try using roasted chickpeas instead of chicken. You can also add other veggies like eggplant or sweet potato for extra flavor and texture.
