If you are not familiar with Dak’s Spices you need to be! http://www.daksspices.com. This is a Birmingham based company that has developed a line of spices that I use on a daily basis. This Greek chicken recipe uses the Dak’s Green Zest and everything is cooked on one sheetpan.  And …..oh my!……it is sooo good. This recipe was plenty for me and my husband – for a family of 4 I would just double it.

Ingredients

    • 6 baby new potatoes
    • 8 oz of fresh green beans
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or basil leaves
    • 2 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
    • 2 Tb of Dak’s Green Zest Seasoning (or any Greek season)
For the marinade
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • In a large size Ziploc bag, combine chicken, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, red wine vinegar and oregano or basil; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Drain the chicken from the marinade, discarding the marinade.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray  a baking sheet
  • Place the chicken on the baking sheet. Place potatoes and green beans in a single layer around  the chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste and the Dak’s or Greek spice
  • Place into oven and roast until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.* Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly charred.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley or basil
