Ingredients You’ll Need
Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe: ground chicken (dark or white meat), one egg, olive oil, lemon, dried oregano, chili powder and cumin, potatoes, yogurt, feta cheese, and fresh mint.
Recipe Step by Step
Step 1. Mix up the Meatballs
Mix together the meatball ingredients then scoop and roll them onto bite-sized balls.
Step 2. Roast the Potatoes + Meatballs
Cut the potatoes into wedges, toss with the olive oil, garlic and spices then roast for 20 minutes at 425 F, flipping half way through. After 20 minutes add the meatballs to the tray and cook for an additional 12-15 minutes.
Step 3. Make the Garlic-Feta Yogurt
Whisk together the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, crumbled feta and garlic. Taste and season with salt.
Pro tip: Did you know turning regular plain yogurt into thick and creamy Greek yogurt is very easy to do? Line a mesh strainer with either cheesecloth, a large coffee filter or a paper towel then set it over a bowl. Pour the yogurt into the prepared strainer then transfer to the refrigerator for 1hr-1.5hrs. The whey will drip through the strainer into the bowl and you’ll be left with thick and creamy Greek style yogurt!
Step 4. Serve
Top the chicken meatballs and potatoes with lots of fresh mint and lemon slices. Serve with the feta-yogurt either drizzled over top or on the side.
FAQs and Expert Tips
This sheet pan recipe is meant to be a complete meal but if you’re looking for something extra to serve on the side I would suggest Greek Orzo Salad or Smooth and Creamy Homemade Hummus with a side of pita bread! Oh and for dessert… Olive Oil Cake!
Meatballs are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165F. You can use a meat thermometer to test this. You can also just break one open to make sure there is no pink in the middle.
