Mediterranean Sheet Pan Chicken

For a wonderfully easy and delicious dinner, try Mediterranean Sheet Pan Chicken.  Yes, one sheet pan filled with delicious ingredients popped in the oven and roasted until fragrant and cooked through.  And only one sheet pan to clean up (and if you line it with foil, it’s the easiest of clean-ups!).  It’s hard not to love this!

We begin by making a marinade of olive oil, garlic, smoked paprika, oregano, cumin and coriander.  To that, add chicken thighs, garbanzo beans, Kalamata olive, cherry tomatoes, sourdough bread cubes and cilantro.  Toss it all together and be sure to coat all the ingredients!

Spread it all out on a sheet pan that’s lined with aluminum foil (this is so helpful when cleaning up).  Sprinkle a little freshly ground pepper over the chicken thighs and pop the pan into the oven.

Bake this chicken and fixings about 20-30 minutes.  Remove it from the oven and sprinkle the feta cheese over the top.  Cover with a foil tent so that the cheese starts to soften.  Divide the dish among serving bowls, sprinkle with additional cilantro and feta, if desired, and enjoy!

      This is a great dish. I’m normally a white meat only guy. But I love chicken thighs cooked this way. All the different flavors released into the pan are so juicy, and they make the chicken so moist. Thanks Fran. Keep them coming.

        I’m so glad you enjoyed this dish, Harry! I love all of the flavors that come together so beautifully!

      DELICIOUS!! This meal had really great flavor and was easy. In under an hour, you’ll have an amazing greek chicken dish. I used chicken breast strips instead, as we prefer white meat & the flavors soaked in well. I hesitated about the bread, as we don’t eat alot of carbs, but let me tell you… they are the real deal. They get crispy/crunchy and really make the dish.

        I agree with you about the bread…it’s a must! I’m so glad you loved it, Wendee!
