SHEET PAN CHICKEN SOUVLAKI
For all the Chicken Souvlaki lovers, my Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki is easy to whip up and won’t leave you with a sink full of dishes! It is as healthy as it is delicious and makes a great weeknight dinner.
One of my all-time favorite meals to get at a Greek diner is Chicken Souvlaki, served as a giant salad along with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, Kalamata olives, pepperoncini, feta cheese, pita bread, and Greek salad dressing. This Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki dinner is reminiscent of that with marinated chicken, but it’s a bit heartier, with roasted veggies standing in for salad. This meal is so full of flavors and textures; you won’t even miss the carbs!

- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 medium red or yellow bell peppers, cored, seeded, and they are sliced into 1/2-inch strips

- Gather everything, all ingredients, and appliance you need to cook your dish. And start with preparation. Clean everything, all appliances, and ingredients. Then peel and cut the onion and cut the chicken. And wash it with the cleaning water. Remove any waste on the chicken.
- Then arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400℉. Then, place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while the oven is heating.
- Season the chicken and potatoes with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt. And then, place the chicken skin-side down in the center of the hot baking sheet. Once it is done, add the potatoes, cut-side down, around the edges of the baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, garlic, oregano, and basil a small bowl and whisk to combine; set aside. And then place the peppers with the remaining oil and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl and toss to combine; set aside.
- After that, flip the chicken skin-side up. Then, brush the chicken with the lemon-herb mixture. Scatter the peppers around the chicken. And then, bake until the chicken and potatoes are crispy and the peppers are tender and browned around the edges, about 15 minutes more. Once baking is done, let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before serving.
Note: There is not much to do with decoration on this dish. It has lots of vegetables with various colors. You can serve it just like that bit if you like you can serve with fresh latus and cheese on the top.
