I’ve always been a fairly intuitive cook, and this new easy recipe for low-carb Greek Chicken Bake is an idea that just popped into my head one day, maybe when I was thinking about some of the other recipes labeled “easy” that have been so popular on the blog. I don’t know if it’s partly the word easy in the title, but recipes like Easy Baked Pesto Chicken and of course the popular-all-year Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake seem to have so many fans!

And I’m betting that this easy chicken bake with Greek flavors is going to be a recipe a lot of you will like as well! Kara and I first made this without the peperoncini, and it was certainly good, but we both felt the addition of some spicy Greek peperoncini really kicked it up a notch when we tried it that way!

What ingredients do you need?

  • large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Olive Oil (affiliate link)
  • Greek Seasoning (affiliate link) (see notes)
  • cherry tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives, or use black olives if you prefer
  • sliced Greek Peperoncini
  • Feta Cheese
  • fresh-ground black pepper

What gives this recipe Greek flavors?

The ingredients that give this recipe such amazing Greek flavors are Greek Seasoning, tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, Greek Peperoncini, and of course Feta Cheese!

What is Greek Peperoncini?

Peperoncini (also sometimes spelled pepperoncini) are spicy pickled peppers that are popular in Greek and Italian cuisine. And ever since I bought that big jar of sliced peperoncini from Costco, I guess I’m just looking for ways to use it! But if you’re a Peperoncini fan you’ll love the slightly-spicy touch they add to this recipe, even if you have to buy whole Peperoncini and slice them yourself.

What if you don’t like Peperoncini or Kalamata Olives?

I know the Peperoncini peppers and Kalamata olives in this recipe both have strong flavors. But of course you can omit the Peperoncini if you prefer, and also use regular black olives if the Greek olives aren’t a hit at your house, but if you like chicken, tomatoes, and Feta cheese I hope you’ll try this tasty dinner.

Want more tasty Chicken Bakes?

What I call a “chicken bake” is a recipe where the chicken is lightly browned, sometimes cut into strips, layered into a baking dish with flavor enhancing toppings, and then baked for a short time for a relatively quick and easy chicken dinner. If you like this idea you might enjoy some of the other chicken bake recipes on my site!

This Greek Chicken Bake is an easy low-carb dinner that's loaded with Greek flavors and it's absolutely delicious!

Ingredients

  • 4 very large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. Greek Seasoning (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomato halves
  • 1/2 cup chopped or sliced Kalamata olives (or use black olives if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup sliced Greek peperoncini (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese (use more or less to taste)
  • fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  2. Trim four large chicken breasts, removing any fatty or undesirable parts. Rub chicken on both sides with Greek Seasoning (affiliate link).
  3. Heat olive oil in frying pan over medium high heat, then add chicken breasts and cook about 2 minutes on first side, until it's starting to barely brown.
  4. Turn chicken over and cook a few minutes on the other side. (Don't cook too long at this point or the chicken will be overdone by the time it bakes.)
  5. Remove chicken to cutting board and let cool a minute or two until it's cool enough to handle.
  6. While chicken cooks and is cooling, drain olives and slice, slice tomatoes in half, removed seeds from peperoncini and slice, and crumble the Feta.
  7. Then cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 3-4 strips.
  8. Spray an 8"x13" or 9"x12" casserole dish with non-stick spray and arrange chicken breasts going crosswise in the dish.
  9. Sprinkle tomatoes, olives, and peperoncini over the chicken strips and crumble Feta over the top.
  10. Season to taste with fresh-ground black pepper.
  11. Bake 25 minutes or until chicken is hot and cheese is starting to melt. (I used an Instant Read Meat Thermometer (affiliate link) to make sure the chicken had reached a safe-cooking temperature of 165F/75C.)
  12. Serve hot and enjoy.

Notes

You can buy Greek Seasoning at Amazon.com if you don't find it in your store. (affiliate link)

If you have whole peperoncini pepper, cut off the stem end with Kitchen Shears (affiliate link) or a knife, and drain them in a colander placed in the sink. When the juice has drained out, use your finger to scoop out the seeds from each pepper, then cut them into slices with the kitchen shears. You can also use a knife, but this is much easier with kitchen shears!
