You might have noticed how I love low-carb red and green foods during the holidays for dinners that are healthy and still festive! So for Friday Favorites today I’m reminding you about this this Greek Chicken, Green Beans, and Tomatoes Sheet Pan Meal that’s so perfect for this time of year! 

When I tested the recipe, we loved the idea of a sheet pan meal with chicken, green beans, and tomatoes topped with melty Feta cheese! But our first attempts to make this Greek Chicken Sheet Pan Meal with marinated pieces of chicken breast weren’t winners when the chicken released too much water when it baked. That’s when we switched to bone-in chicken thighs, and we loved the result!

If you’re an Air Fryer fan, you could make the chicken in the Air Fryer and cook the veggies separately on the sheet pan. This would give crisper chicken. This is a super-easy and tasty dinner no matter which way you cook it! And check out Low-Carb and Keto Sheet Pan Meals for Easy Family Dinners for more tasty ideas for sheet pan meals!

How to Make Greek Chicken Sheet Pan Meal:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, Greek Seasoning (affiiliate link), Spike Seasoning (affiiliate link), and dried thyme (affiiliate link) for the marinade. 
  2. Set aside 1/4 cup of marinade.
  3. Trim chicken thighs (I use kitchen shears to trim, affiliate link) and cut small slits through the skin.
  4. Put chicken thighs and marinade into a Ziploc bag and let it marinate 4-8 hours, or all day while you’re at work.
  5. When you’re ready to cook, drain chicken into a colander and let it come to room temperature. (This is important or the chicken will take too long to cook.)
  6. Preheat the oven to 425F/220C while the chicken comes to room temperature.
  7. When you’re ready, put chicken thighs on a large sheet pan and roast 8 minutes.
  8. While chicken cooks, trim the ends of the green beans and cut in half. Cut cherry tomatoes in half.
  9. After 8 minutes remove sheet pan from the oven and use paper towels to blot any water that’s released from the chicken. (This will depend on the chicken you use, less expensive chicken will be more watery.)
  10. Add green beans to the sheet pan and brush chicken and beans with reserved marinade. Season with fresh-ground black pepper and a little salt. Roast 14 minutes more.
  11. After 14 minutes (or when the chicken is starting to brown a bit and seems nearly done) tuck cherry tomatoes halves around the chicken and green beans (try to keep ingredients in a single layer as much as you can.)
  12. Cook about 6 minutes more, or until chicken and green beans are done.
  13. Sprinkle with Feta cheese and serve.

When you want to keep it healthy during the holidays, this Low-Carb Greek Chicken, Green Beans, and Tomatoes Sheet Pan Meal is still a festive dish!

Ingredients

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (see notes)
  • 1 T Greek Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (or use another all-purpose seasoning of your choice)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme

Sheet Pan Meal Ingredients:

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (see notes)
  • 1 lb. thin green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • fresh-ground black pepper and salt to taste (remember the Feta cheese is salty)
  • 1 cup crumbled Feta cheese (more or less to taste)

Instructions

  1. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, Greek Seasoning (affiliate link) Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), and dried thyme (affiliate link) to make the marinade.
  2. Set aside 1/4 cup of marinade to brush on the dish later when you've added the beans.
  3. Trim chicken thighs, cutting away extra skin and fat as much as you prefer. (I use kitchen shears (affiliate link) to trim) Cut small slits through the skin on the top of each thigh.
  4. Put chicken thighs into a Ziploc bag with the rest of the marinade and let it marinate 4-8 hours, or all day while you're at work is even better.
  5. When it's time to cook, drain the chicken into a colander placed in the sink and let it come to room temperature. (This is important or the chicken will take too long to cook for the timing of this recipe.)
  6. Preheat the oven to 425F/220C while the chicken comes to room temperature.
  7. When you're ready, put chicken thighs on a large sheet pan and roast for 8 minutes.
  8. While chicken cooks, trim the ends of the green beans and cut them in half. (I do this by grabbing a handful and standing them up against the cutting board. Trim that end of the beans, then turn beans over and stand up the other side and trim.)
  9. Cut cherry tomatoes in half.
  10. After 8 minutes remove sheet pan from the oven and use paper towels to blot any water that's released from the chicken. (This will depend on the chicken you use, less expensive chicken will be more watery.)
  11. Add the green beans to the sheet pan and brush chicken and beans with the reserved marinade. Season with with fresh-ground black pepper and a little salt (remember the Feta Cheese is salty.)
  12. Roast for 14 minutes more.
  13. After 14 minutes (or when the chicken is starting to brown a bit and seems nearly done) tuck the cherry tomatoes halves around the chicken and green beans (try to keep ingredients in a single layer as much as you can.)
  14. Cook about 6 minutes more, or until chicken and green beans are done.
  15. Sprinkle with Feta cheese and serve hot.

Notes

If your package of thighs has more than 8, trim and marinate them all and cook the extras on a separate sheet pan. I use my fresh-frozen lemon juice for this recipe.

This recipe created by Kalyn, Jake, and Kara, after a few experiments that weren't quite right! We loved the chicken, green beans, and tomatoes with the melty Feta on top.

  1. Oh my gosh! Made these today and they are amazing!!! So tasty. Thank you for easy and delicious recipe

  2. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this myself! I love Greek flavored anything, especially chicken and fish. I’m sure this will be on my list of usual dinner ideas, as soon as I have green beans! Thank you!

  3. Hello! This looks delicious. 🙂

    Have you made this recipe using only 4 chicken thighs and reducing ingredients or do you recommend using all 8?

    Thank you!

    • You could definitely cut the recipe in half and only use four chicken thighs. The cooking time would be the same, or maybe just slightly less since there will be more air flow around the ingredients.

  4. This was good!  I topped with feta and roasted red peppers chopped up.  I love the combo.
    Thank you.

  5. Hi Kalyn, you said that when you used chicken breasts you ended up with too much fluid/juice? I’m not a huge fan of chicken thighs (especially with skin/bone), so am trying to come up with an alternative, otherwise the flavors sound great! I’m thinking that roasting the chicken breasts and veggies separately might do it?

    • Or maybe cut the chicken breasts into strips, marinate, and cook 2-3 minutes in a hot pan before you roast. We liked the flavor of the breast so if you don’t mind blotting off some liquid with a paper towel just do it that way. (We has chunks of chicken breast.)

      • OK, cutting the chicken into strips and cooking for 2-3 minutes in a hot pan did work well for eliminating the water–got tons out that way. Next time I would omit the step of cooking 14 minutes afterwards though.. Chicken was a little too done, but it was all tasty.

    • Sandi, glad that worked for you!

  6. I’m having trouble finding the Yum button. Thank you for your help.

    • The YUM button is a small orange button located directly below the recipe title at the top of the post. Hope that helps!
