Gather the ingredients for Greek sheet pan chicken

To make this Greek-inspired chicken dish, you'll want to make sure you have some staple ingredients on hand. For this recipe, you'll need extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, oregano, salt, any color of bell peppers, a red onion, cherry tomatoes, a can of whole artichokes, chicken breasts, a lemon, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and basil. There are quite a few ingredients that go into this recipe, but all of them are easy to source, and they all contribute wonderful flavors to the dish!

Start assembling the vegetables on the pan

Before you do anything, go ahead and get your oven preheating to 400 F. Next, grab a small bowl and add in the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, oregano, and salt. Whisk these ingredients together, then briefly put the bowl aside.

It's time to start building this one-pan dish! Place the peppers, onion, tomatoes, and artichokes on a rimmed baking sheet. Keep in mind that the peppers and onion should be sliced into 1-inch strips, but the tomatoes and artichokes can remain whole. Drizzle half the olive oil mixture onto the vegetables and toss them to coat.

Add the chicken to the pan and bake

Now, it's time to add the chicken to the pan. Nestle all four chicken breasts between the vegetables, then coat them with the remaining olive oil mixture. Place the lemon slices or rounds around the chicken — not only will these add some wonderful acidity, but they'll also add even more color to an already colorful dish. Your oven should be preheated by now, so go ahead and pop the baking sheet into the oven, setting the timer to bake for 25 minutes.

Add the olives and Feta cheese, then serve

Once the dish has baked for 25 minutes, remove it from the oven. Add the kalamata olives and feta cheese, then bake the dish for an additional 10 minutes. After that, garnish the dish with fresh basil, and you're ready to dive right in. "I usually steam some rice or throw in some diced potatoes on a separate sheet to roast for a side," Shelbert says of pairing options, adding that she "also serve[s] with hummus or a tzatziki sauce," which helps amplify the Greek flavors. This dish is perfect for serving a family of four, and nearly any palette will appreciate the fresh flavors in this dish!
