Hey, hi, and happiest Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Did you watch the Super Bowl last night? Did you hopefully make plenty of food and enjoy a low key Sunday? That is my hope! Over here we’ve been having some bitter cold weather, with snowy, blustery days. Perfect for staying inside, roasting up a chicken dinner, and doing plenty of weekend baking.

Which leads me to today’s recipe. I actually made this over the weekend. I found myself needing something easy to make on Saturday night. It was FREEZING, with blowing snow, so I wanted something comforting. I almost turned to pasta. But then for some reason, I was really feeling a dinner with more of a Greek twist to it.

It’s been a while since we’ve talked about a good Greek dinner, so I pulled out this recipe. It’s such a favorite, so easy, and I wanted something different.

The Idea.

I’ve been cooking up so much Thai and Italian recipes lately that I felt like I needed to break out of that pattern a bit.

I thought about what I hadn’t created in a while and Greek was at the top.

Since I wanted to keep things easy, I decided sheet pan chicken and potatoes, but all done up with my favorite spices, herbs, and sauces.

The quick and easy details.

The beauty of a sheet pan dinner is that typically, they’re pretty darn easy to throw together. It’s why we love them so much! But what is truly special about this specific sheet pan dinner? Well, cooking everything together on one pan actually allows for more flavor to really penetrate everything from the chicken, to the potatoes.

The first thing I like to do is do a quick marinade on the chicken. I toss it with a little balsamic vinegar, oregano, paprika, shallots, and garlic. I then add lots of olive oil and chili flakes and let everything sit for a bit at room temp.

While the chicken sits. I start roasting the potatoes since they take longer to cook than the chicken.

Once the chicken mix has rested for 15-20 minutes or so, add it to the sheet pan with the potatoes. Then add a couple of red bell peppers and onions. It’s important to slice the peppers on the thicker side so that they can cook for the same amount of time as the chicken and potatoes. For the onions, it’s the opposite, I like to cut those pretty thinly so they can caramelize while cooking.

Throw everything back into the oven to finish roasting.

And while that’s all cooking away…and making your kitchen smell incredible…mix up two things. First, I like to toss cubed feta cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and olives. The oil from the sun-dried tomatoes “marinates” the feta. It’s so delicious, you can’t skip this step!

I also do a little garlic yogurt. I love smearing this on the chicken for some creaminess, which is always nice on a sheet pan chicken.

When everything is done, layer it all together and top it with a good handful of fresh herbs.

The funny thing is that when I was working on this recipe, I wasn’t even trying to make it a one pan and done kind of dinner. It just made sense to roast the chicken and potatoes together so that the potatoes could cook-up in the oils from the chicken…making them just that much more delicious.

Simple, easy, healthy, and really just pretty darn delicious

Love the idea of this sheet pan dinner as a Monday night dinner. But honestly, it’s great any night of the week.

Drizzle over 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Return the pan to the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes more, until the chicken is cooked through.
    4. Meanwhile, combine the sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, the olives, pine nuts, and feta in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the yogurt, 1 clove garlic, and a pinch of salt.

    This was another delicious recipe! I made a happy mistake and mixed the yogurt with the feta, pine nuts, olives, garlic and sun dried tomatoes and it made a yummy accompaniment to the chicken and makes a delicious spread for crackers and sliced baguette! I’m going to try the leftover chicken, peppers and onions on a pita with the yogurt spread next time—no leftovers the first time!

    This recipe was PERFECT for a dinner party I hosted. For the yogurt sauce, I added some dill so that it could be more a tzatziki-inspired yogurt dip. So delicious and the leftovers are also amazing! One morning, I revamped the leftover potatoes, feta, and yogurt dip into a breakfast platter by frying up some eggs in pesto and it was also epic.

    1. Hey Dalia,
      Thanks so much for your comment! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks so much for making it! xTieghan

  3. How do you roast the lemon halves with the potato’s? Do you cut them up and put them on the potatoes? If not what do you do with the roasted lemons? Thank you

    1. Hey Ginger,
      Correct, just refer to the photos above, the lemons are cut and then roasted with the potatoes. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    A weeknight staple in our house! It is soooo freaking good. I use the leftover feta mix and peppers/onions for eggs in the morning!

    Thoughts on grilling the chicken? Our grill is right next to our kitchen. Thought it could be interesting to switch it up.

    So easy and delicious. I stopped after one bite to thank you you for this wonderful recipe! A good sheet pan meal is the best after a long day and I halved it for just my husband and me. I’m pretty sure there will be no leftovers though ?

    This dish was delish! So many amazing flavours going on, and really fairly easy. I didn’t have boneless breasts, but the bone-in breasts were just as good. Will make again for sure

    Delicious but I wouldn’t call it easy. With easy in the name I expected something a little more simple. Bit the few extra steps were worth it as it had amazing flavor. I did chicken legs so it needed much more then 20 minutes.

    1. Hey Stephanie,
      Happy Friday!! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks a lot for trying it out! Sorry this took you longer than expected. ☀️xx

    It was lovely! The chicken tastes amazing. So much flavor and when using thighs, so juicy! The yoghurt together with the patatoes en peppers is just perfect.
