Greek Panko Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner
I’m a huge fan of Greek flavors and if food has feta cheese on it, it’s destined to become one of my favorites – especially if it’s a one dish meal. The chicken sheet pan dinner has recently become a favorite of mine because they are so simple and delicious! This meal combines fresh herbs, lemon, organic yogurt, chicken, veggies, and feta for a delicious combo. If you can set aside a few minutes in the afternoon to marinate the chicken, this family-friendly meal will come together really quickly.
Have you ever marinated your chicken in yogurt? Yogurt is a wonderful marinade because the active bacteria and lactic acid break down protein and make boneless, skinless chicken breasts moist and tender. Yogurt is one of my favorite chicken marinades and if you haven’t tried it yet, I highly encourage you to!
One of our favorite yogurts is Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk plain yogurt. I buy it in bulk from Azure Standard and it serves as quick breakfasts, dips, and snacks. We love that it’s free of sugar and supports family farms. The marinade for this chicken is absolutely delicious thanks to the wonderful, healthy whole milk yogurt.
To make this delicious sheet meal, combine the marinade ingredients and marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes, or up to two hours. Prep your veggies. This meal is wonderful way to use up any small potatoes you might have grown in your garden. Feel free to peel or not peel the veggies – that’s your choice. I tend to peel the carrots, but leave the potatoes as long as they’re organic.
I also love roasted red onions, but my kids don’t enjoy them that much, so I keep the veggies separate on the pan sheet. That way, they can take what they want. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Finally, top with feta cheese and fresh parsley! Enjoy this wonderful meal.
