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.

  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts (optional)
  • 8 ounces cubed feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

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.
    5. To serve, divide the chicken, potatoes, peppers, and onions between plates. Spoon the feta mix and yogurt over the chicken. Top with a handful of fresh herbs. Eat and enjoy!

    Hey I’ve done this meal so many times
    I’m not a fan of olives so I used artichoke hearts
    I simply love everything you do
    Huge fan!!!

    1. Hey there,
      Happy Sunday!! I am delighted to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, I truly appreciate you giving it a try! xTieghan

  2. Just made this and the chicken was delicious. However, my potatoes didn’t have much flavor. Perhaps it feels that way after eating the chicken with the sauce that is bursting with flavor.
    My sheet pan also was filled with water/juices from the chicken and i don’t think i should have that much juice?

    1. Hey Mira,
      Thanks for giving the recipe a try, sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the potatoes. You could always season them extra next time. There should not be a ton of juices, if so you can always drain them. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan
