Greek Chicken Bake

Makes 4 servings

4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 head of garlic, cut in half

1 large red onion, cut into wedges

1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Juice from 1 lemon


For serving

Tzatziki

Extra lemon wedges

Warm pita


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper and place skin side up in a large baking dish. Arrange the garlic halves, red onion wedges, and kalamata olives around the chicken. Sprinkle the pan with the oregano and drizzle the olive oil and lemon juice over the chicken, onion, garlic, and olives.
