Greek Chicken Dinner serves up the juiciest, most flavorful chicken you've ever tasted, and that's no joke! Starting with rich, fatty chicken thighs, this dish then coats each thigh in tangy, creamy Greek yogurt and coats it in herbs and spices for that distinct Mediterranean flair. Roasted alongside hearty potatoes and garden-fresh vegetables, Greek Chicken Dinner is a complete meal on one baking sheet, and it's a complete meal you won't soon forget!
