Whole30 + Keto Greek Chicken Marinade

The chicken thighs are marinated in the most delicious and simple greek marinade. Just olive oil, lemon zest, garlic + oregano. You can marinate them for as little as 20 minutes, or up to 2 days.

I get my organic, free range, hormone + antibiotic free chicken from ButcherBox (which I highly recommend!). I get whole chickens that I break down myself each week. The bone-in skin-on chicken thighs are my absolute favorite!

steps to making sheet pan greek chicken

Roasting Chicken + Artichokes

There are 2 secrets to getting ultra crispy sheet pan chicken thighs are artichoke hearts:

  1. Use a rimmed baking sheet with a wire rack. This will keep the chicken thighs up off all the fat that comes off them as they roast, keeping them oh so crispy. Same for the artichokes (that are from frozen artichokes!) The wire rack will keep them up from any residual moisture that cooks off.
  2. Keep the chicken thighs and artichoke hearts on separate baking sheets. As much as I love a 1 sheet pan dinner, this one is really better with 2. The chicken thighs have a lot of fat and moisture that splatters off them as they cook. But keeping the artichokes on their own sheet pan they won’t get soggy.

Serving

I love serving the greek chicken with my cauliflower rice and lots of my lemon garlic aioli. The aioli is delicious as a dip for the artichokes and the chicken! Plus, it adds tons of great fat for your keto macros.

And of course, some fresh wedges of lemon because gosh do I love lemon.

Instructions
 

  • Make the greek chicken thighs marinade in a large bowl or ziptop bag by combining all ingredients. Marinate for at least 20 minutes, or up to 2 days.
  • Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Line 2 rimmed quarter baking sheets with parchment and set in the wire rack.
  • In a medium size bowl, gently toss the thawed artichoke hearts with olive oil.
  • On one rimmed quarter baking sheet with wire rack, lay out the chicken thighs skin side UP. Discard any leftover marinade. Season with salt + pepper.

  • Roast both the chicken thighs and artichoke hearts for 45 minutes, until crispy and the chicken has an internal temperature for 165ºF.
  • While the chicken and artichokes are roasting, make the lemon garlic aioli by stirring all ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Serve the chicken thighs + artichoke hearts warm with lemon garlic aioli. It's delicious on the chicken and the artichokes! I also like to serve it with cauliflower rice.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days.

Recipe Notes

Chicken Thighs: I prefer to use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. The bone gives them the most flavor, and the crispy skin is my favorite! You can ask your butcher for this cut. I get my chicken from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend. You could substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs! They will probably need closer to 40 minutes to cook through. You could also use breasts, but they'll need just 30-ish minutes to cook. I'd start the artichoke hearts in the oven for 15 minutes, then add in the breasts.
Frozen Artichoke Hearts: I get frozen artichoke hearts at Trader Joe's. They always have them! I've sometimes seen them at Whole Foods and Safeway. If you can't find them, my 2nd favorite option is jarred artichoke hearts in oil. Costco carries these! Just drain them, and roast as is. No need to toss in oil since they've been marinating in oil. My least favorite option is canned artichoke hearts. They have a really briney taste and don't get as crispy since they are so wet from being packed in water.
Meal Prep Instructions: Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. I love these plastic ramekins to hold the lemon garlic aioli. HEATING: Remove the aioli, and either microwave until warm, about 3-5 minutes (I like to sprinkle in a little water to help it steam and prevent it from drying out). Or reheat in a 350ºF oven until warm, 10-15 minutes.
