There are so many things we have loved about living in Utah.  We love our friendly neighborhood, walking out the door to views that make you feel like you actually snuck into a resort and have been hiding away waiting for them to tell you that you have to pay much more to access all of the beauty, and new experiences, like gardening.

I have always considered myself to have quite the brown thumb.  Very few plants that enter our home have a long, happy and fulfilling life.  But after seeing all of my neighbors here with gardens overflowing with gorgeous plants yielding fresh produce daily, I decided this summer that it was now or never!

Keep the recipe handy because everyone will want it! Mediterranean Chicken Bake is a super easy dinner idea packed with spinach, artichokes, tomatoes, feta cheese and greek seasoning and made all in one dish for easy prep and clean up!

So now it was and I spent far more than I might have actually spent buying produce planting the garden of a lifetime!  I asked my friends what to plant and they said zucchini!  You can’t kill zucchini.  Well I did.  3 times.  But I did manage to keep a few tomato plants alive and well enough to give me a tub full of tomatoes this past August.

All the fresh produce makes me excited to cook things that show them off so I combined them with some of my favorites, fresh spinach, tangy artichokes, lemon juice, capers, greek seasoning and topped it all with delicious mozzarella and feta cheeses to make what came out of the oven as one of my new favorite dinners!

Mediterranean Chicken Bake Recipe – Ingredients

  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tbsp Cavendar’s Greek Seasoning- This comes in a yellow cardboard container with a sprinkle top and can be found in the seasoning section of most major grocers or mega stores.
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Can Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped – It doesn’t matter whether they are marinated or not since we drain them, so just use whichever you prefer!
  • 1 Cup Tomatoes, chopped – I used about 2-3 medium tomatoes chopped up from my garden
  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach, chopped
  • 2 oz Jarred Capers, drained – These are optional so you can leave them out if you don’t like them.  2 oz is about half a normal sized jar.
  • Juice of One Lemon
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled

Mediterranean Chicken Bake Recipe – Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Lay the chicken side by side in the bottom of a large baking dish, then sprinkle the greek seasoning evenly over the top of each piece of chicken.By sprinkling the seasoning over the chicken directly, it will give the chicken itself much more flavor.  If you sprinkle it over the top of all the veggies, you won’t get nearly as much flavor in the chicken.  I found one tablespoon to be the perfect amount of seasoning for 3-4 chicken breasts, but if you like more or less, adapt the quantity to taste.
  3. Layer on the chopped artichoke hearts, tomatoes, and spinach and then sprinkle the capers, lemon juice and olive oil over it.Feel free to take a little creative license here.  I created this using items that I knew we needed to use from our pantry and garden, but if there are other veggies you have on hand you can add or substitute those as well.  Just make sure they are similar in texture for a similar cook time.  For example, you would be fine adding sweet peppers but you wouldn’t want to add potatoes since they take too long to cook!  Also, I know not everyone loves capers, so if you are one of those people, then feel free to leave them out.  There are not enough to be overwhelming in this dish and with them included I love the tiny bit of bite they add here and there.Spinach, artichoke, tomatoes, lemon, and feta all baked over chicken - Mediterranean Chicken Bake is so easy to make and clean up in only one dish!

  4. Top the dish with the mozzarella and feta cheeses and place on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is browned on top.I love to use both mozzarella and feta in this dish.  The mozzarella becomes more melted and really brings the dish together where the feta is tangy and compliments the Mediterranean flavors.Many people ask me on each chicken bake I post if you need to cover these.  I bake mine on the middle rack in my oven and almost never need to cover them.  I find that it helps the liquid cook out so the bake doesn’t end up soupy and perfectly browns the cheese.  Now with that said, every oven cooks differently both from size, true temperature and even altitude, so when you make this, it would be smart to keep an eye on it and if the cheese appears to be overly browning, you can loosely cover with foil for the remainder of the cook time.  On this chicken bake specifically, I would leave uncovered as long as possible because with all the fresh veggies there is still a bit of liquid in the bottom even with cooking uncovered.
  5. Serve hot over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes, or sautéed spinach.  I like to serve these dishes in so many ways!  The options are limitless.  We even ate this a second time over quinoa and then I used the leftovers to chop up, mix with the quinoa and a little extra italian dressing and then ate as a cold salad for lunch.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!  If you try it out I would love for you to let me know in the comments.  It makes my day when people try and love my family recipes!  Or you can tag me in a pic of your creation on instagram with @easyfamilyrecipes!
