I love adding feta cheese to non-traditional recipes, like I did in this sheet pan dinner! Feta cheese is a diverse cheese that can add bold flavor to any meal you’re making. This vegetarian sheet pan dish features Athenos chunk feta cheese with roasted broccolini, tomatoes, red onion, and chickpeas. If you’re looking for more fun ways to cook with feta, try these Chicken Thighs with Artichokes and Feta, Naked Greek Feta-Zucchini Turkey Burgers, and Spiralized Mediterranean Beet and Feta Skillet Bake.

Sheet Pan Baked Feta with Chickpeas

I partnered with Athenos feta cheese to bring you this delicious meal using their feta chunk. I love their feta chunk because it’s been authentically made the same way for over 20 years. It’s crafted with fresh, simple ingredients and has the perfect creamy and tangy taste. Their feta is available at most supermarkets, but you can search for it using their product locator on athenos.com.

How to Make Sheet Pan Feta

I love sheet pan meals because they are so easy! This one-pan dinner can be thrown together in minutes and baked in 30 minutes.

  1. Just toss the vegetables and chickpeas with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper on the sheet pan.
  2. Nestle the feta slices in between the veggies and pop the pan in the oven.
  3. Stir the veggies halfway through, and then finish the dish with fresh lemon juice and zest.

Does feta cheese melt in the oven?

Feta cheese will not melt in the oven due to its high acid content, but it will soften.

Variations:

  • Vegetables: Swap the broccolini for broccoli or zucchini. And feel free to use grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes.
  • Protein: Add chicken tenders for more protein. Season them with your favorite spices and nestle them into the sheet pan for the same cook time.

  1. First time roasting chickpeas and I liked them! I used crumbled feta and will stick to the recipe and use the 8oz next time.

  2. So delicious, flavorful, and healthy! I added cumin and coriander seeds to give it extra flavor. @gina – can I bake it at 350 degrees? If so, how long would it need to be in the oven?

  3. Such an easy recipe that delivers a punch in flavor. Great for when you’re having company as well since you can prep beforehand and then just stick it in the oven when ready to eat!

  4. Such a fabulous, flavorful dish and so simple to put together. I really underestimated this one. Glad that I made it. Thank you, Gina!

  5. Yum! Something so simple but so delicious. I added some frozen corn kernels and garlic. 

  6. Wow! This was amazing! Really delicious.  I used regular broccoli and added some chicken and ate it for lunch. Can’t wait for my leftover lunch tomorrow!

  7. I made this last night; it was incredibly delicious and flavorful. The feta cheese elevated to the next level.
    @gina – how long will leftovers last in the fridge?

  8. Made this tonight!, it was amazing!,thank you

  9. Looks delicious! Are you saying to put the oven rack on the lower third to keep it closer to the heat source?
