Chicken and marinade

  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl or plastic bag. Add the chicken thighs and toss to fully coat.
  2. Cover or seal, and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight for maximum flavor.

Vegetables

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (200°C).
  2. Place the onion and bell pepper in a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Top with the chicken and marinade. Make sure the marinade covers the vegetables. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven. Add tomatoes, feta cheese, and olives. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is light golden brown.

Garlic sauce

Serving

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.
