Easy and delicious recipe for Greek chicken with bulgur, baked vegetables, and a homemade herb dressing. This is healthy and yummy dinner in just half an hour!



Greek Chicken

14.11 oz (400 g) chicken breast

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons paprika

2 garlic cloves



8.82 oz (250 g) carrots

1 zucchini

1 red onion

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon dried oregano


5.29 oz (150 g) bulgur

1 vegetable bouillon cube


5.29 oz (150 g) creme fraiche

0.5 bundle fresh parsley




  1. Preheat oven to 390 F (200 C).
  2. Use your KUMA Paring Knife to trim chicken from any connective tissue or other parts you may not want to eat. If chicken breast is thick you may want to slice it through the middle so you end with 2 thinner filets.
  3. Smash garlic with side of your KUMA Chef’s Knife or Santoku blade to crush it. Then chop into fine pieces.
  4. In a bowl mix chicken with oil, garlic, paprika, oregano, and salt and pepper. Ensure it’s mixed thoroughly.
  5. Put chicken onto a baking tray lined with baking sheet.
  6. Peel carrots and onion. Cut carrot into slices and onion into wedges.
  7. Cut zucchini in half and then cut into slices giving you half circle pieces.
  8. Put all veggies onto the same baking tray as the chicken but in the opposite side away from the chicken. Add oil, oregano, salt, and pepper, and mix well so all vegetables are covered.
  9. Put baking tray inside oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  10. While they’re baking, let’s make the bulgur. Cook bulgur after packaging instructions but with an added bouillon cube in the water for added flavor.
  11. Chop parsley to fine pieces. Mix well with creme fraiche, salt, and pepper. 
  12. Remove chicken and vegetables from oven when they’re done.
  13. Serve chicken with the baked vegetables, bulgur, and your herb dressing.


Recipe for Greek chicken with bulgur and baked vegetables

A delicious meal with Greek chicken and baked veggies. We have beed requested to share more “everyday dinners” and we wanted to honor that.

This is the type of recipe that only requires a little prep work up front, and the bonus here is you get to use your super cool KUMA knives for most of that! Then you just slap the whole thing into the oven on a shared baking tray and wait as it cooks. Meanwhile you set a pot of bulgur to boil while you can whip up your own quick and easy parsley dressing. So good and easy! 

We love recipes like this where you don’t have to stress over all the different elements. Here almost everything just takes care of itself.

The chicken is marinated in a delicious and tasty marinade of oil, paprika, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. The baked vegetables consist of red onion, zucchini, and carrots. However for a dish like this you can use almost anything you have available in your vegetable drawer. What’s important is just to make sure all vegetables finish in about the same time as the chicken, so with a hard vegetable like carrot and zucchini we want to slice them somewhat thin. 

Marinated chicken with vegetables

The chicken is baked in the oven. That is such an easy and fast way to cook chicken and you avoid a whole mess to clean up afterwards. If you do prefer cooking your chicken on a pan, though, you definitely can. We just like the really easy method of putting it in the oven along with the veggies. That saves a bit of energy as well considering the oven is already on anyways. 

For our side dish we have boiled some bulgur and whipped together a homemade herb dressing made with creme fraiche and fresh parsley. A quick dressing like that should not be underestimated. It tastes amazing with with the seasoned chicken and it’s just so fast and easy to make. 

So if you need a bit of inspiration for a healthy and filling everyday dinner with lots of greens, we definitely recommend giving this recipe a try. Healthy, easy, and lots of flavor.

What other vegetables can I use?

We mentioned above you can use other vegetables. We could definitely see ourselves using red bell pepper, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, small cherry tomatoes etc. You can let yourself be inspired by what’s in your vegetable drawer or by what is currently in season. 

Alternatives to bulgur

If you don’t like bulgur that much or can’t find it, you can also cook regular rice, couscous, pearl spelt, or even pasta. We just really like bulgur plus it is filling, so we went for it in this recipe. But there are lots of lovely alternatives that will go just great with this meal.
