One-Skillet Greek Chicken Recipe with Spinach & Peppers

This one-skillet Greek chicken dinner is ready in 30 minutes. It’s delicious and the spinach with peppers makes it very nutritious and the perfect busy weeknight meal. Enjoy!

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts to make this dish but, you can substitute chicken thighs for a juicier alternative. This Greek recipe can easily be modified to suit your taste and to use up whatever vegetables you have in your refrigerator.

  • Add some baby kale leaves or any frozen veggies
  • kalamata olives would be wonderful sprinkled on top
  • saute some sliced mushrooms along with the onions for more heartiness
  • zucchini, eggplant, and fresh bell peppers can be added too
  • diced potatoes go great with spinach
  • add some canned beans

I love quick recipes like this one that do not require a grocery trip. The whole meal is made in one skillet, ready in 30 minutes, and is full of fresh and delicious flavor!

Here are some tips:

  1. Instead of cutting slits into the chicken breasts, cut them in half to end up with 2 thinner chicken cutlets.
  2. Use chicken thigh meat for a much juicier outcome. You can use boneless or bone-in thighs. The cooking time will increase by 15-20 minutes when using meat with the bones.
  3. Use a didgital meat thermometer to check the doneness. Once the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 °F, it’s ready. Overcooking chicken breast dries it up.  You can buy a digital thermometer here. (affiliate)
