Easy Low-Carb Greek Chicken Bake
This Easy Low-Carb Greek Chicken Bake is loaded with everyone’s favorite Greek flavors and this easy-to-make dinner is absolutely delicious! Use Oven Dinners for more tasty ideas like this one.
I’ve always been a fairly intuitive cook, and this new recipe for Easy Low-Carb Greek Chicken Bake is just an idea that 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, Easy Low-Carb Baked Parmesan Fish, 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!
Of course ever since I bought that big jar of sliced peperoncini from Costco, I guess I am just looking for excuses 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. 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.
How to Make Easy Low-Carb Greek Chicken Bake:
(This is just a summary of the steps shown in the photos; scroll down to see the complete recipe.)
- Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
- Trim four large chicken breasts. Rub chicken with Greek Seasoning (affiliate link).
- Heat oil in frying pan, then add chicken breasts and cook about 2 minutes on first side.
- Turn chicken over and cook a few minutes on the other side. (Don’t cook too long at this point.)
- Remove chicken to cutting board and let cool a minute or two.
- Then cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 3-4 strips.
- Spray an 8″x13″ or 9″x12″ casserole dish with non-stick spray and arrange chicken breasts.
- While chicken cooks and is cooling, drain olives and slice, slice tomatoes, removed seeds from peperoncini and slice, and crumble the Feta.
- Sprinkle tomatoes, olives, and peperoncini over the chicken strips and crumble Feta over the top.
- 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.
Serve hot and enjoy!

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! This recipe created by Kalyn and tested a few times with help from Kara.
