Oven Roasted Greek Chicken and Vegetables

This was one of those dishes that made me want to chest bump Brandon after we finished.  It also made me want to drive to Oxford to chest bump when as she was the one that recommended I make it.  

Instead of chest bumping everyone, though, I just enjoyed the meal and excitedly had it for leftovers.  

This recipe is coming to us from a site called Budget Bytes.  It's got what appears to be some good stuff and it's one that I'll probably be referencing often.  Especially if the rest of the recipes are anything like these guys.

So what, you may be asking, exactly are these guys?  They are oven roasted Greek veggies and chicken to go inside of pita pockets.  If you can chop and preheat your oven then you are going to win this day.  This lovely, Greek chicken day.  

Since this is a budget byte, it's only got one piece of chicken.  I was good with that (since anything other than shredded chicken and I are still kind of in a fight right now) and mainly focused on the veggies.  

Happy roasting, ουσ. φίλος, φίλη !  (That's friends in Greek according to google.  Which probably means that I just said something horribly offensive.  If that's the case, sorry. )
