Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki

Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki is an easy and delicious meal to make during the week!

I think we are on thin ice. 

And I’m not talking about a whirlwind ice romance where a privileged Olympic ice skater falls for a former hockey player. Oh, no. Also, can we have a moment for the movie “The Cutting Edge?” 

I randomly watched it the other day and fell in love with Doug Dorsey all over again. He’s also the same dude in that weird alien abduction movie “Fire In The Sky.” Yeah, that movie was effing weird and he was not cute in it. Stick to the ice, bro! 

Where was I? Oh, yes. Thin ice. 

Between the Coronavirus and Daylight Savings, I think we are asking a lot from humanity when it comes to health. The virus is crazy and making people freak out. You’ll find no judgement from me if you want to stock up on supplies and protect your situation. BUT! When you mix panic and people who haven’t slept…..yeah, sh$t is going to be sporty this week. 

Other than waiting for the apocalypse to happen (kidding not kidding), I feel like we need to chat about this Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki. You might be asking yourself, what this heck is souvlaki? Basically, it’s a Greek marinade consisting of garlic, olive oil, oregano, lemon juice, salt and pepper. 

Toss the chicken with the marinade, add it to the sheet pan with some lemon slices and peppers. Bake until golden brown and extra juicy. If this Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki doesn’t keep you awake and the Coronavirus at bay, I’m moving to Mars. Or to a skating rink in Minnesota. 

Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 lb drumsticks
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 to 2 bell peppers, sliced thinly
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine chicken, olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. You can either cover the chicken and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to overnight. Or you can place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet!

  4. Remove from oven and garnish with feta, olives, and Greek yogurt.
