Greek Baked Chicken

It’s easy to change up a traditional dish like baked chicken and create a fun new favorite with a few simple ingredients. Creamy Greek yogurt, dill, olives and feta cheese come together to make this delicious Greek flavored chicken dish.

Chicken quarter pieces (the thigh and leg attached) are usually very inexpensive, making them a great protein option for a large family like mine. They’re moist and versatile. We enjoy Asian Baked Chicken occasionally to change things up. 

This Greek Baked Chicken has lots of great flavor and it can be quickly put together on busy nights.

Remove foil and sprinkle feta cheese over entire dish. Return chicken to oven and increase temperature to 425. Allow chicken to brown for 15 to 20 minutes.

  1. I hate to tell you this, but your Greek yogurt isn’t real Greek yogurt. Looks like you bought “Greek style,” which combines carbs and fats. :(
