Greek Sheet Pan Chicken

Jump to Recipe

The delicious flavors of Greek food are so simple yet so powerful. And they are perfect for a sheet pan meal. Sheet pan meals are so good for weeknight meals – very little clean-up and the whole “set it and forget it” lets you get other things done. This combo of chicken, potatoes, tomatoes and green beans is going to be a win at your house. And the feta covered pita bread is so great! Greek Sheet Pan Chicken is a quick and easy dinner.

I always put parchment paper down on the sheet pan before piling on the food It makes clean up a breeze not to mention it limits the bottom burning. I get the big rolls from costco because it is wide enough for my larger baking sheets. My kids love it because it means they have a pretty easy time doing the after dinner dishes!

If you wanted to adjust the amounts of the green beans and tomatoes, you certainly could. Half my clan doesn’t care for large chunks of tomatoes, so I didn’t use as many as others might prefer. Just make sure you cut back on one of the other veggies, so that everything will still fit on the sheet pan.

The pita bread was so tasty. If you take some of the yogurt, spread it over a quarter piece and add on some veggies and a chunk of chicken – you can eat it sort of like a little taco. It’s really yummy. My hubby also suggested just doing chicken breasts on the sheet pan so I could chop it up and make actual pita pockets with this.

This really is an all in one meal – no real side dishes involved. If you needed to stretch the meal you could make a cucumber and tomato salad, perhaps. Though, I think this sheet pan dinner is plenty filling and very hearty. My family stopped just short of licking their plates clean (at least I think most of them did!)

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
