Greek Chicken Bake

Yield: 4 Servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

2 bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces

1 red onion, cut into eighths

3/4 cup artichoke hearts

1 lemon, quartered

4 chicken thighs

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2/3 cup black olives

1/4 cup chopped feta

2 tbsp chopped fresh basil

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 390 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a large baking sheet or roasting tray, add the chopped peppers, red onion slices, artichoke hearts, and lemon wedges.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the garlic, olive oil, vinegar, paprika, and oregano. Pour 1/3 of the sauce over the veggies, sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss until well coated. Place the chicken pieces on top of the veggies and brush sauce. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes, or until the chicken is almost cooked through (see Note 1)
  4. After 50 minutes, add in the feta, chopped basil and olives. Pour the remaining sauce over the tray and return to the oven to bake for another 5-10 minutes. Check the chicken to ensure its no longer pink. Sprinkle with basil and serve.

Note 1: Cooking time really depends on the size of your chicken thighs. I had 1 large, 2 medium, and 1 small. The small thigh was done after ~30 minutes, while the large thigh took almost 1 hour.
