Mediterranean Chicken

One Pan Mediterranean Chicken will become your go-to meal for quick and easy weeknights dinners, or for those nights when you have to entertain. This easy dish will impress your guests while requiring from you minimal work.

The One Sheet Pan Mediterranean Chicken is full of fresh flavors, a colorful, hearty and tasty meal! The Lemon Orange Honey Sauce made with fresh lemon and orange zest makes all the flavors shine! The chicken is juicy and tender, while the veggies are roasted to perfection.

Mediterranean Chicken Recipe Tips:

  • Start with organic chicken thighs, using high-quality meat, is always the best.
  • Mediterranean dishes are all about using high-quality fresh produce, so make sure your veggies are as fresh as possible.
  • Use fresh herbs, I used rosemary, you can also garnish the dish with fresh basil leaves.
  • Don’t skip the capers, while not everyone will have some in the kitchen, these little guys add a ton of flavor.
  • Use a mix of olives as they will add even more color and flavor to this dish. I used pitted kalamata olives for the bake and topped the dish with green and red olives.
  • In the sauce, it’s key to use fresh lemon and orange juice and also don’t skip the zest. The bright and fresh aromas of the zest will make this dish shine.
  • Liquid honey also works best in the sauce recipe.
  • The recipe is highly customizable, for example, if you don’t like red onion, replace it with more red bell pepper or grape tomatoes, you get the idea.

Can I make this meal using Boneless Chicken Breast?

Yes, you can, this is such an easy recipe, that you can also adjust based on your preference. You can use chicken breast or other chicken parts, it will work just as fine. It will taste delicious and it will make up for a very easy and quick dinner.

What wines pair well with Mediterranean Chicken?

  • A nice, fruity red wine such as Zinfandel or Syrah will pair nicely with the flavors in this chicken dish.
  • If you’re looking for a white option, Riesling or Pinot Grigio are always great matches for sweet and savory, somewhat spicy dishes.

Tools/ingredients that I used to make the One Sheet Pan Mediterranean Chicken Recipe:

  • Capers – salty and briny, capers are perfect to add a mix of flavor to your dishes.
  • Kalamata Olives – I used pitted kalamata olives for the bake.
  • Onion Powder – great to have on hand to season main dishes and also to make meat rubs.
  • Garlic Powder – perfect to season meat and veggie dishes.
  • Sheet Pan – I love these pans, they are 17×12 inches and also have a lifetime warranty.
  • Organic Olive Oil – olive oil can make or break a dish, I always opt for organic.
