Greek Sheet Pan Chicken & Veggies

September has been a weird month. We came back from a Labor Day weekend away in Sanibel and dove right into Hurricane Irma panic. After a week of high levels of anxiety and uncertainty, an unexpected week off work, and a night spent in the bathroom waiting out the storm, this past week life finally seemed to be getting somewhat back to normal. Thankfully we never lost power and had no damage to our home so it was a lot easier to return to our usual routine.

I can't tell you how happy I was to also return to cooking this past week. While stressing over the storm I had zero appetite so I barely cooked or ate anything all week. I was happy to have my appetite back and to be able to try out some new recipes.

First on the list was this Greek chicken and veggies. I've never tried a sheet pan dinner before, but The Recipe Redux is always challenging me to try new things. I'm not sure why I never tried one before since it's so easy to just add everything to a sheet pan and cook it all together all at the same time.

I've also shared my love of Greek food before. Anything dipped in tzatziki is always a winner for me, and this is no different. The veggies and chicken were all loaded with seasonings, making for a tasty, colorful and healthy bowl.
