Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Dinner

I only have one more present left to buy, one more left to wrap (when it finally gets here), and stocking stuffers left to accrue. I’m actually being a decent human being this Christmas, yay me! Usually I’ll wait until the last minute, and I mean last minute, to get all of my presents.

I’m a procrastinator through-and-through.

Thanks to the wizardry that is online shopping, I never even left the house to get any gift this year. You can go ahead and blame me for why brick and mortar stores are going under, okay? I love my Amazon app. I live off of it. Need a weird makeup brush? Boom. Bought and on it’s way while I never got out of my pajamas.

If there are days when I can look as raggedy as possible, I’m taking it. And thanks to the magic of instant shopping I can spend some weekends never putting a bra on. That’s the best life in my opinion.

Now I’m scrambling to put together grocery lists and holiday menus. There’s still one more party we have (a work one next week) and I need to make a dessert (got that covered) and I really want to make a savory snack but just can’t nail down what I want.

I’m leaning toward chex mix because it’s a standard holiday classic. I’ll probably spice it up just because that’s who I am, but everyone loves chex mix, so it’s sure to be a winner.

Is your holiday season going by like a blur? Are you struggling to finish last minute menu planning, or gift shopping, or cleaning? Thank God you came to my blog, then. We’re still a little under two weeks away from Christmas, so you still need to eat regular foods.

What? You can’t live off of sugar cookies and fudge for that long.

What better dinner to make than a tray bake? Just throw everything on a sheet pan and pop it in the oven while you’re whisked away into your holiday stressing.

This sheet pan meal will hit the spot. I know it did for me! The chicken came out juicy and tender, and the potatoes crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The little sun-dried tomato and feta topping really tied everything together.

I had a cucumber that went bad on me so I wasn’t able to make a Tzatziki sauce like I wanted to, but you definitely should. Everything, and I mean everything, is better with Tzatziki.
