Why We Love This Recipe

One pan…. a whole meal on one pan makes for less mess and an easy clean up! Add parchment paper to the pan to make it even easier!

It uses simple ingredients you likely have on hand already. Swap up the veggies to include your favorites. Most of the time in this recipe is hands off so it’s great to prep and put in the oven.

It has great flavor as the veggies roast in the oven and the juices from the chicken add to the potatoes.

Ingredients for Sheet Pan Greek Chicken

Ingredients/Variations

This Sheet Pan Greek Chicken uses fresh ingredients, marinated, and baked until tender!

CHICKEN Chicken thighs are juicy and full of flavor and the perfect choice for this meal.

You can substitute bone-in skin-on split chicken breasts in place of the chicken thighs.

POTATOES Baby potatoes are used in this dish, but any potatoes will work great!

Cut your potatoes in smaller pieces, about 3/4″, so they cook through along with the chicken. If your potatoes are too large, the chicken will be done before the potatoes are tender.

VEGGIES Bell peppers and tomatoes are added in the last 20 minutes of cooking. If you like softer veggies, add them sooner.

If you like firmer veggies, add them later.  Try adding zucchini, mushrooms or other favorites to stretch this dish even further!

MARINADE This marinade in this dish is similar to a souvlaki marinade. Greek seasoning adds great flavor and can substitute for the seasonings in this recipe (or even swap it with Italian seasoning)!

Tips for Success

  • Cut the potatoes small so they cook in time along with the chicken.
  • Add a pinch of oregano, greek seasoning or lemon zest to to the potatoes for extra flavor before they cook.
  • For softer tomatoes and bell peppers, add them sooner. For firmer vegetables, add them later.
  • Chicken thighs can be replaced with bone-in split chicken breasts.
  • If using boneless chicken breasts, they bake quickly and should be added in the last 30 minutes of cook time (for 5-6 oz chicken breasts, adjust as needed to ensure they reach 165°F).
