Baked Greek Chicken & Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner
Easy and healthy baked greek chicken & veggies sheet pan dinner is seasoned and cooked to flavorful perfection and couldn't be easier with just one pan and a handful of simple ingredients.
Servings 4 servings
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
- salt and pepper to taste
- mediterranean seasoning see note
- 1 lemon thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 red bell pepper chopped or sliced
- ½ cup kalamata olives halved
- 1 medium onion chopped or sliced
- 2 tablespoons capers
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste and about 3 teaspoons Mediterranean seasoning on both sides. (see note)
Combine lemon sliced, red bell peppers, olives, onions, and capers in a bowl. Drizzle with oil and stir to coat. Sprinkle with remaining Mediterranean seasoning and stir to coat well.
Arrange chicken, lemon slices, red bell peppers, olives, onions, and cappers on a large, greased baking sheet.
Bake, uncovered, for 15--20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender. Top with cracked black pepper and fresh herbs (optional) and serve immediately.
-For the Mediterranean seasoning, you can use about 1 1/2 tablespoons of your favorite store-bought or homemade Mediterranean seasoning, OR you can whip up your own by stirring together the following: 2 teaspoons dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
-I like to cook the chicken in a greased skillet over medium heat on the stove top for 1-2 minutes on each side. This is an optional step but I like the added color and the slightly crispier exterior on the chicken from browning in the pan this way before baking.
