My husband says I have little bit of a gift in the kitchen.
I can usually stare at a few ingredients and spices, and come up with a delicious recipe. It’s also how I’ve learned to cook over time.
We plan meals a lot around here, but when we’re running low on groceries and times get desperate, I get creative.
That’s where this dish came from!
I wanted to create an easy meal that took a few ingredients, and this one hit the mark so well that even I couldn’t believe it.
This greek-style pan roasted chicken is marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, smashed garlic cloves, oregano and salt.
The marinade is the key to this. Letting your chicken marinate is always going to result in a more flavorful dish.
Taking the time to let this soak makes a major difference.
Literally that’s it. You can top it with tzatziki (it adds a nice creaminess).
I served them over green beans because they lend a nice crunchy texture when blanched, and pair so well with the herbs and spices from the oregano.
A small portion of red potatoes also pairs well with this dish. Just be sure to watch your portions.
Get the recipe below, and make sure to save it for later as a pin.

Mom’s neighbor gave mom a home grown chicken. We have to go shopping for dog and human food anyway. At a grocery store, I will pick up the ingredients for your chicken. The recipe sounds exactly like our kind of meal. All of us love chicken, beans, potatoes, and tzatziki. Mom and I are both diabetic and love good fresh food. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
We have been looking for ways to jazz up chicken. This will be in rotation on our table. ❤️
I love anything chicken do I definitely have to try this recipe!!
The chicken looks fantastic on its own but then the tzatziki sauce just takes it to the next level!!
So simple and flavorful. I will try the sauce with it.
I love everything about this especially the Tzatziki sauce! Plus, one pan is always the best for easy cleanup. Saving this one for later 🙂
This is such a treat for a weeknight dinner that doesn’t actually take forever to make. Thank you for sharing!
I love it! Super fresh and creative plus that chicken looks tender!
Don’t skip out on the tzatziki sauce! It sent this recipe over the top with flavor! This is going into the meal rotation for sure!
Love this quick and easy dinner made with staple ingredients. This is perfect for a light summer meal. I would just enjoy it with some fresh pita bread.
