Reasons you'll ♡ this recipe
- it's packed with flavor from simple ingredients you likely already have in your pantry
- delicious on chicken, fish, potatoes, roasted vegetables and more
- you'll save time during meal prep with this go-to seasoning blend
- Greek spices - basil, oregano and dill bring those Greek flavors to this blend. Since these herbs are bulkier than the other spices in this blend, I like to crush them with the handle of a wooden spoon a bit before mixing them in. This just helps them mix in better.
- Aromatic spices - garlic powder and onion powder are essential in this blend. They bring so much flavor, and without them it is extremely bland.
- Savory- salt and pepper bring the savory flavors to this blend. The play of the herbs + savory flavors is what makes this Greek spice blend!

How to use this seasoning
(Pictured above: veggies & chicken prior to roasting for the Greek Chicken Wraps)
We use this seasoning blend in so many ways. I am definitely going to add more recipes to the blog and add them in here, because it is so versatile!
- Fish- this Greek seasoning recipe works well on salmon, but is even better on a white fish like tilapia. Sprinkle it on generously and don't forget to add in a few lemon slices as well!
- Chicken- we love this Greek seasoning recipe on chicken! Toss the chicken in a little olive oil, sprinkle on around 1 tablespoon of the seasoning per chicken breast, and tuck some lemon slices on and under the chicken breast. We bake this up at 425°F for 25 minutes. Perfect with a big Greek salad!
- Potatoes- This blend is so so good on roasted or grilled potatoes. We toss the potatoes in olive oil, add the Greek seasoning blend, and roast up for 25-45 min (will depend on the size of your taters) at 425°F. Squeeze on some lemon juice just before serving!
- Roasted vegetables- particularly cauliflower, zucchini and bell peppers. Same directions as for the potatoes, but cut the roast time to 15-25 minutes.
Use it in:
I use 1 tablespoon per chicken breast, so this is roughly 2 tablespoons per pound. You want to use this seasoning aggressively, and it might look like too much. Don't forget a squeeze of lemon juice or some fresh lemon wedges for baking!
Yes this seasoning is delicious in salad dressing! For a similar variation, see this classic Greek salad dressing recipe.
- Marinade - add some olive oil and lemon juice and use it as a marinade (I would add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning per boneless skinless chicken breast)
- Rice or quinoa - add it to the cooking liquid for your rice or quinoa to give it some pizzaz (I would add 1 tablespoon per 1 cup uncooked rice or quinoa)
- Dip - add it to some yogurt to make a tasty Greek dip for veggies.
Store - in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 1 year. Keep out of direct sunlight and store in a cool, dark pantry for best results.
