How To Make This Greek-inspired Chicken
Preheat your oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To get the juiciest and most flavorful chicken, start off by marinating the chicken. Combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, Greek seasoning, salt, and pepper into a small bowl. Place the chicken in a large bowl, pour ⅔ of the mixture on top of the chicken and set aside.
While the chicken is marinating, prepare the vegetables. Roughly chop zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes, and any other vegetable you would like. Feel free to use other vegetables, but use veggies that are low in moisture.
Add the vegetables onto a lined baking sheet, and cover them in the rest of the marinade mix. Make some gaps in the veggies for the chicken. Place the chicken onto the baking sheet and bake it in the oven for 30 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and sprinkle the feta cheese on top. Put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature should read at least 165°F.
Remove it from the oven and serve it with some rice or a salad.
