What is Greek Chicken?
Greek chicken is chicken that has been marinated or flavored with spices and herbs often found in the the Greek Cuisine. Greek flavors include garlic, mint, oregano, onion, dill, fennel, and thyme.
Additionally, Greek chicken often includes extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon zest or juice.
Ingredients needed to make Greek Chicken and Potatoes
- Red potatoes. You can substitute broccoli, brussels sprouts, thick asparagus, or any other fibrous vegetable for a lower carb option!
- Chicken breasts or chicken breast cutlets. I prefer to make my own to save a little dough [$1.99 per pound vs. $4.99 per pound at our local grocer] but if it’s easier to purchase pre-cut, go for it!
- Garlic powder
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil [“EVOO”]
- Fresh lemon juice. You can opt for concentrate. Just use about 1/2 tablespoon!
How to make Greek Chicken and Roasted Red Potatoes
- First, place your red potatoes on a parchment lined sheet pan and season with extra virgin olive oil [“EVOO”}, sea salt, and pepper. Place sheet pan into a preheated oven at 400℉ for 10 minutes.
Note: you can swap these out for any low carb fibrous vegetable!
- Secondly, combine oregano, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper into a small dish. Add EVOO and stir with a spoon to create a paste!
- Remove the potatoes from the oven and move to the sides of the sheet pan, making an open area in the center. Add chicken to the sheet pan.
- Top your chicken with the paste. With your hands [or basting brush], spread the paste to evenly coat the entire chicken breast. Return to the oven for 20 minutes.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the chicken and serve!
- If you really want to take it to the next level, serve potatoes with a drizzle of your favorite ranch dressing!
