I like to serve this healthy and simple dinner infused with Greek-inspired flavors and herbs with an equally simple Yogurt Dill Sauce. A sauce that makes an incredible dip for veggies, a beautiful and delicious topping for chicken, seafood… or Greek Pita Sandwiches.

To make your own 2 minute Yogurt Dill Sauce, combine 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt with 2 tablespoons fresh dill, a pinch of sea salt, a couple of cloves of minced garlic, and a splash of lemon juice.

Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet is a deliciously simple and healthy way of eating. If you’re not familiar, here is an overview:

The Mediterranean diet is considered to be one of the healthiest and best in the world. Consider it as a guideline for healthy eating. The Mayo Clinic defines the Mediterranean diet:

  • Daily consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and healthy fats (like olive oil)
  • Weekly consumption of fish, poultry, legumes (beans & lentils), and eggs
  • Moderate portions of dairy products
  • Limited intake of red meat

When eating Mediterranean diet focused meals, concentrate on these ingredients:

  • Olive oil 
  • Beans, lentils, bulgur wheat, quinoa, and rice
  • Plant-based foods
  • Vegetables
  • Lean meats and seafood

  1. Delish! I also used an extra bowl to coat the veggies. I don’t mind the extra bowl to put in the dishwasher!
    Noticed you had the lemon slices in the sheet pan picture but it’s not in the recipe. I’m assuming you did NOT cook the lemon slices, just put them and the parsley as garnish at the end? That’s what I ended up doing. And I didn’t slice up another lemon; once I squeezed out the juice using a hand squeezer, I cut up the squeezed lemon into slices and used as garnish.

    1. Hi Sherry! Sometimes a bowl is easier! You right, I did not cook the lemon slices but used them for garnish at the end, and for squeezing on the chicken for added flavor. That was a great idea to use the squeezed lemons (there always seems to be more juice in them too!). Thank you for trying the recipe!

  2. This looks amazing. Is it ok to reheat? Sometimes hubby gets home late and needs to reheat his dinner.

    1. Thank you! It works great for leftovers— and reheating for later meals (or late working husbands 😍).

  3. Wonderful recipe! I will make again, but with less peppers for my personal taste. Super easy and a great sheet pan recipe.

  4. Delicious! I used veggies I had on hand but followed the same cooking technique. This was light, fresh and surprisingly robust. The lemon and herb combo was great and the chicken (I used chicken breast) was very tender and juicy. I will definitely make this again. It’s a versatile and tasty recipe!

    1. Yay! So glad you enjoyed it– and I completely agree that it is a versatile recipe that can be adapted in many ways! Thank you for trying it and letting me know how it worked for you.

  5. Making this right now! Looks and smells so good! One question, do you put the sliced lemon on after it’s cooked or somewhere in the cooking process?

  6. We love love love this recipe we did make some small changes over time one is a process change. We pour the marinade over the veggies in a bowl. This makes it much easier to evenly cost every thing We also added some fresh mushrooms and some sweet onions

    1. Hi Dan! I’m so glad you have enjoyed this recipe. We love it too. Your process tip is super helpful, in fact, I find myself doing the same. Although it adds a bowl to clean, I think it’s worth it. AND I love the idea of adding mushrooms. Thank you so much for letting us know how you liked it!

      1. Hi Dee Dee! Yes- you can definitely substitute chicken breast. Watch the baking time, although depending on the size of the breasts, they should have similar baking times.
