RECIPE: Greek Chicken Thighs with Roasted Potatoes

Sheet pan meals are so dependable. They encompass every important adjective needed for a healthy meal for busy families – quick, easy, flavorful, and simple clean-up.

Don’t forget to add a side vegetable for a complete meal! We added a few suggestions below.

Serves 5
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (save lemon for zest later)
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1lb Yukon gold potatoes, diced
  • Fresh parsley (optional)

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay a piece of aluminum foil down to cover a large sheet pan.

2.) In a large bowl, combine marinate ingredients, whisking everything together until incorporated. Then add in chicken pieces and potatoes, tossing together until everything is fully coated with marinade. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

3.) Slowly scatter chicken and potatoes on the pre-lined sheet tray. Transfer to pre-heated oven and bake for ~20 minutes until chicken is fully cooked.

4.) Garnish with fresh lemon zest and parsley.

Side vegetable ideas (that keep with the Greek theme!)

-Make a Greek salad of diced tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and feta cheese

-Stir-fry together onion with bell peppers (frozen works great too!)

-Toss together low sodium canned green beans with a can of diced tomatoes
