The Mediterranean diet has been named the top diet for health by US News & World Report for the 5th year in a row.  It’s no wonder, the diet is based on fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats, whole grains, lots of olive oil, and citrus. 

It’s a clean way of eating that promotes good heart health and longevity of life.    As a proponent of the clean, whole foods eating movement, it’s no surprise that the Mediterranean diet is at the top of the list again and again.  

This Mediterranean Chicken thigh recipe uses bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, but you can always substitute for boneless, skinless thighs if you prefer.  The cooking time will be slightly reduced since the meat is off the bone.  

Serve with a hunk of whole-grain bread to sop up all the juices. 

 

Ingredients

  • 5 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper

How to Make Roasted Mediterranean Chicken Thighs 

Preheat the oven to 425° F.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. 

Season the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and dried oregano on both sides and place into the skillet, skin side down to sear the chicken.  Cook for about 5 minutes until the skin is golden brown, then turn and cook for 5 minutes on the other side. 

Add the cut potatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, shallots, and sliced garlic to the pan surrounding the chicken.  Drizzle remaining olive oil over the veggies and season with salt, pepper, and fresh thyme.  Pour the white wine or chicken broth into the pan and squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the chicken. 

Bake (uncovered) in the preheated oven for 50 – 60 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes and veggies are tender.  The chicken is done at 165° F when measured with an internal thermometer but tastes better at 175 to 185°.  So cover the pan once you reach 165 and the residual heat will allow the chicken to come to temperature. 

Top with crumbled feta cheese if desired and fresh chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.   Serve with whole-grain rustic bread to sop up the pan juices.

Notes

If you don't have a large enough skillet, you can roast the chicken in a glass pyrex dish or another baking dish. You will still brown the chicken, but you'll want to deglaze the pan by pouring the wine or chicken broth in the skillet and whisking to get all the brown bits of flavor out of the skillet and into your roasting pan.
