Satisfy your craving for greek food with this easy Greek Chicken One Skillet meal! If you can tell I love making one-pan/skillet meals, typically these recipes are very easy, but even better, lead to easy cleanup!

Ingredients needed to Make this Greek Chicken One Skillet Meal:

  • 18 oz Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Thighs, (about 4 medium-sized thighs)
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • ½ Red Onion, (about 85 grams)
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Swiss Chard, chopped (about 130 grams, or 1 bunch)
  • 2 tbsp Feta Cheese, crumbled (about 20 grams)
  • 9 Kalamata Olives, (about 35 grams)

Instructions to make this easy Greek Chicken One Skillet Meal:

  1. Heat deep pan with a lid to medium heat. While the pan is heating season the chicken thighs on both sides, with black pepper and garlic powder. Once the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil to the pan.
  2. Place the chicken immediately in the pan, leave it there on medium heat for 4 minutes, then flip to the other side and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
  3. Both sides should become golden brown, but the center won’t be fully cooked just yet. Turn the heat to low and cover the chicken with a lid. Let the chicken cook for about 3 minutes, then flip and cover again for another 3 minutes on the other side.
  4. After 3 minutes on each side covered, the chicken should be done.But this does depend on the size of the chicken things…these times are based on a 4, 4½ oz thighs. It is always best to check the internal temperature of the chicken before serving.
  5. Once the chicken thighs are cooked remove them from the pan, leaving all remaining liquid in the pan. You are going to use that to infuse the chicken flavors into the other ingredients.
  6. Turn the heat back up to medium-low and add your sliced red onions to the pan with the chicken juices. Cook the onions for about 4 minutes until they have softened and absorbed most, but not all of the juice.
  7. Now add the chopped swiss chard to the pan. Toss the swiss chard with the onions and the remaining chicken juice, toss often until chard has wilted down. This will take about 3 minutes.
  8. Serve by plating the swiss chard and onions onto a plate, then top with your cooked chicken thighs. Sprinkle your crumbled feta cheese and kalamata olives on top and Enjoy!
