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.

    THM questions
    1. Would the bbq sauce be an FP in and of itself?
    2. Could the creamy Broccolli Slaw be FP, S, or E depending on the mayo used? In other words, all ingredients except the mayo are FP, right?

    1. Amanda Coers

      Hi Brenda, yes ma’am the BBQ sauce (depending on the fat content of the meat used) could be FP and with a change to the mayo the slaw could also be FP.
