Greek chicken on a baking sheet.

I love the promise of a good sheet pan supper, but true contenders are hard to come by.

To fall into this esteemed category, a sheet pan meal needs to be straight-forward with minimal prep, smacked full of deliciousness, and be made entirely on a sheet pan (no “cooked chicken” or pasta stirred in later; that defeats the purpose ).

Luckily, my own recipe meets my very exacting standards. There is a 30-minute marinade involved, but you could skip it if you forgot. Beyond that, this Sheet Pan Greek Chicken and Potatoes is an ideal sheet pan dinner that is low on effort and big on flavor. I just LOVE it and I hope you do too!

Recipe ingredients

At a Glance: Here is a quick snapshot of what ingredients are in this recipe.
Please see the recipe card below for specific quantities.

Ingredient notes

  • Marinade: For the best flavor, marinade the chicken at room temperature for 30 minutes or up to 12 hours in the refrigerator. If you forgot to marinade your chicken, reserve 2-3 tablespoons for drizzling after the chicken has cooked (sort of like a post-roast vinaigrette).
  • Chicken thighs: Substitute bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts if desired (aim for 2 pounds total). You may have to adjust your baking time and the chicken won’t be as juicy.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. To marinate the chicken, in a large bowl or zipper-top plastic bag, add olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Add chicken and toss to coat. Marinate at least 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 12 hours, covered in the refrigerator.

Top with pepperoncinis and tomato wedges, then sprinkle with vegetables with salt and pepper to taste (I like ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper).
