Sheet Pan Greek Chicken with Creamy Tzatziki Recipe

Golden, garlicky, and irresistibly succulent, this sheet pan stunner takes Greek chicken to a whole new level!

Of all my favorite ways to make chicken, Greek-inspired chicken is in the TOPS of the charts. Simple yet flavorful, with garlic, lemon, and lots of olive oil, it’s as healthy as it is delicious. And, combined on a sheet pan with marinated artichokes, bursting cherry tomatoes, and sweet bell peppers, each ingredient brings out the flavor of the others, creating a veritable symphony for your tastebuds!

My favorite part is the easy tzatziki sauce. It adds an irresistible creaminess and a tangy kick, pulling this mouthwatering array of roasted veggies, chicken, and herbs together to make it the show stopping main course it is.
