Sheet Pan Chicken Za'atar and Grapes

Serves 4 to 6

This clever sheet pan dinner is creative, flavorful, and attractive—and, best of all, the cleanup is easy! Za'atar is a wonderful Middle Eastern spice blend. In this recipe, it beautifully seasons the chicken. It's also great sprinkled on salads or mixed into olive oil for dipping bread.


  • 3 heads garlic
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided use
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons za'atar seasoning
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 pound green grapes, divided into 4 - 5 clusters
  • Chopped fresh mint, cilantro, or flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • Pita, naan, or flatbread
  • Tzatziki
  • Thinly sliced cucumber


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Adjust rack to middle position. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Remove loose papery layers around garlic, leaving each head intact. Trim off top 1/4 to 1/3 of each garlic head, exposing cloves. Drizzle a teaspoon or two of olive oil over the exposed part of garlic, rubbing it into and around cloves.
  3. Place garlic heads, cut side down, on lined baking sheet. Place chicken thighs, skin side up, on sheet with garlic. Drizzle chicken with 1 - 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with za'atar, salt, and pepper. Roast 15 minutes.
  4. Add onion wedges and grape clusters to pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Turn garlic heads over, cut side up, to brown. Return to oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Check grapes and vegetables after 10 minutes and remove from oven when garlic is soft and onions and grapes begin to soften and caramelize. Cook chicken until internal temperature at thickest part of meat, not touching bone, registers 165°F on a probe thermometer.
  5. Place chicken thighs, onions, garlic, and grapes on a platter. Sprinkle with mint. Serve with pita, tzatziki, and cucumbers. Spread roasted garlic cloves on pita or chicken.
