Greek Chicken with potatoes, mushrooms, & olives

Who doesn’t love Greek food? I know I definitely do. It’s been freezing here in Chicago this month and I thought why not whip up one of my favorite comfort foods. This meal is healthy, hearty, and full of flavor. Just wait until you try it. Between the oregano, lemon, and olives; you will be in Mediterranean heaven! By the way, this can easily be made keto friendly if you omit the potatoes 🙂

In the same skillet, add more olive oil then saute the potatoes with the above seasonings and dill. Saute for 10 minutes to get a good crust and until the potatoes are halfway cooked. Set aside in desired baking dish.

In the same pan, add a little bit more oil then saute the mushrooms, onions, and garlic with salt and pepper for about 5-7 minutes. Then add the kalamata olives, stock, and fresh lemon juice. Saute for another 3 minutes or so.

Add this mixture into the potatoes and stir together in the baking dish.

Cushion the already seared chicken into the pan on top of all this.

Bake covered in the oven for 25 minutes or more depending on the thickness of your chicken. Check on it by slicing through the thickest part. If it is completely white, it is cooked through.

Enjoy this dish garnished with feta cheese and some quinoa, rice, or cauliflower rice for low carb option on the side.
