What you will need:


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon coriander, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • 400/500g boneless chicken thighs ( or breasts)
  • 1 tin chickpeas, canned or soaked and cooked
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives
  • 400g artichoke hearts (in water or frozen)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper 
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 small or 1/2 a large red onion
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Serve over rice, couscous, or quinoa, with lemon wedges and feta if desired.

How to put together:


  1. Preheat the oven to 230C. Mix together olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, rosemary, oregano, coriander, smoked paprika, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.  Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons of the marinade in a separate bowl and set this aside.
  2. Rub the larger portion of marinade on the chicken thighs. Let them sit for at least 1/2 an hour, longer is even better, up to overnight. 
  3. Gently toss the reserved marinade with the chickpeas, olives, artichoke hearts, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and onion together.  Add a splash more olive oil if needed.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment or oil it well. Arrange chicken and veggie mixture on the pan in mostly a single layer. Gently spoon lemon juice over the top being mindful of the rub. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper (optional!).
  5. Bake for 20 minutes until chicken thighs are cooked through!

    Serve with rice, farro or couscous! Enjoy!
