This Greek-inspired sheet pan chicken and vegetables dinner recipe is made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts, potatoes, peppers, onions, and hearty eggplant roasted in garlic, olive oil, and oregano. It’s the easiest no-mess dinner recipe the whole family will love!
Having a family of four can make for some very busy days and nights, so anything that can help speed things up and make dinner simpler is more than welcome. That’s why I love one pan or one sheet pan meals, like this Sheet Pan Greek Chicken and Vegetables. Take into account the ease that Smart Chicken® adds, and your meal planning just became a whole lot easier.
- Smart Chicken® chicken breasts: Air chilling makes it so that the chicken’s natural flavor is locked in, making the meat more tender, juicy, and delicious.
- Potatoes: Hearty, buttery, and slightly sweet, I like using Yukon gold potatoes because you don’t have to peel them before cooking and eating.
- Red bell peppers: The sweetest of bell peppers, almost has a fruity flavor, while having a great texture when roasted.
- Onion: I used a yellow onion for this meal, which has a strong, but slightly sweet flavor. They caramelize wonderfully with almost any veggie.
- Eggplant: Great source of antioxidants and vitamins, while being another veggie that caramelizes and sweetens up nicely when roasted or grilled.
- Garlic: Nutty, earthy, and a bit spicy, garlic is a staple in almost all of my cooking.
- Oregano: A nice herb to balance all the sweetness of the roasted veggies, oregano is earthy and slightly bitter in flavor.
- Olive Oil: My go-to cooking oil for delicious cooking that stays healthy.

How to Make Sheet Pan Greek Chicken and Vegetables
Start by grabbing two packs of Smart Chicken® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast and laying them out on a tin foil lines baking sheet. The ease of using Smart Chicken® means no worrying about cross contamination, since they can go straight from the package to the pan.
Next, chop up your produce. When cutting large, round produce like Eggplant, I’ll either cut it in half or cut off the edges first so that it can lay flat for easy cutting. Chop your eggplant into bite sized chunks, and sprinkle it around the chicken on the pan.
Then you’ll cut your onion into large chunks. The layers are more flexible, so I don’t worry so much about making them bite sized. Add your onion to the pan.
Finish chopping by cutting your red bell pepper into bite sized pieces and add it to your pan.
Then drizzle the whole thing with some olive oil.
Next you’ll sprinkle your salt, pepper, and oregano, flipping your chicken breasts to coat both sides.
Once everything is evenly coated, throw it in the oven at 450 for about a half an hour, flipping your chicken over half-way through.
It’s finished when veggies are tender and caramelized, and chicken is cooked through. Take it out of the oven, garnish with additional herbs, and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I store my leftovers?
Kept in the fridge in an airtight container, leftovers should keep for 3-4 days.
Can I make this on the grill?
Of course! You can forgo the sheet pan, and just wrap the veggies in some tin foil before putting on the grill. Then throw the chicken straight onto the grill.
Could I do this with other protein?
I love doing one sheet pan meals like this with pork chops as well.
Easy Ingredient Swaps
- Change out your veggies. You can easily do this recipe with any assortment of vegetables. Switch out the potatoes and yellow onion for sweet potatoes and red onion. Throw in some carrots, broccoli, or cauliflower. Endless possibilities!
- Out of oregano? Thyme, rosemary, or even parsley are all great herb substitutions if you don’t have oregano on hand.
