½ cup olive oil1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons)4 garlic cloves, minced2 teaspoon dried oregano1 teaspoon dried thyme1 teaspoon Dijon mustard1 teaspoon kosher salt½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper6 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced1 yellow bell pepper, chopped into 1-inch pieces½ large red onion, thinly sliced into wedges1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes½ cup kalamata olives pitted¼ cup feta cheese2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, thyme, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.Place the chicken thighs in a bowl and pour ⅔ of the marinade on top, then use your hands to toss the chicken in the marinade and make sure it’s well coated. Marinate the chicken for 10 to 15 minutes.While the chicken is marinating, spread the zucchini, bell pepper, red onion, and tomatoes onto the baking sheet and drizzle the remaining marinade on top. Toss together to coat the vegetables.Add the chicken thighs the baking sheet, nestling them around the veggies, and bake for 30 minutes.Remove the baking sheet from the oven, add the olives and feta and then place it back in the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is cooked through to 165°F.Sprinkle the chicken and vegetables with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
Always remember that every oven cooks slightly differently. If your chicken thighs aren’t getting golden enough on top, you can raise the rack high in the oven or turn on the top broiler for the last minute or two. Alternatively, if the tops are cooking too quickly, you can lower the rack in the oven or reduce the temperature slightly.If you’re looking for some new heavy-duty sheet pans that won’t warp or twist in the oven, these commercial sheet pans are great!
