Instructions

Chicken and marinade

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, or a large plastic bag, mix together the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic, and oregano. Add the chicken thighs, and toss to coat.
  2. Cover or seal, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. Vegetables

  4. Preheat oven to 375°F (200°C). Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
  5. Place the onion wedges and bell pepper slices on the sheet pan. Add the chicken and completely coat the vegetables with the marinade. Bake on the middle rack, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove sheet pan from the oven. Evenly scatter the tomatoes, feta cheese, and olives around the chicken. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned.
  7. Garlic sauce

  8. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  9. Serving

  10. Serve the chicken and vegetables, with the garlic sauce on the side. Garnish with fresh thyme and lemon wedges.

Tips

This dish is perfect for meal prepping. Make a big batch and save it for lunch or put the left-overs in the freezer. The sauce doesn't freeze well so make a new batch or just serve it with mayo mixed with some garlic powder for an even easier sauce.

    Made this tonight and it was FABULOUS! Omitted green peppers (not a fan) & separately broiled some zucchini rounds. Feta didn't brown so put it under the broiler for a min or so. Had my doubts on the garlic sauce, but I've got to say, it really brought the meal together and added so much extra satisfying flavor. Will definitely make it again & looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Love these simple, tasty recipes.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome review! I'm also a big fan of popping things under the broiler for a bit of extra color.
