2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 15 oz cans green Castelvetrano olives pitted, drained
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest divided
2 teaspoon sea salt

Lemon Garlic Yogurt Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 Tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
5 garlic cloves minced
1 ½ teaspoon garlic sea salt (add more if needed to taste)
1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 500°F (260ºC). Place a baking sheet on the center rack of the oven as it preheats. (Preheating the pan prevents the ingredients from sticking.)
Make the yogurt sauce in a small bowl cover and put in refrigerator.
In another small bowl mix olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/2 of the Greek seasoning, salt and pepper, then set aside
In a larger Bowl put the chicken, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, olives.
Pour the olive oil lemon juice mix over the chicken & vegetables and toss well so everything is coated.
Pour onto the hot baking sheet and carefully arrange in an even layer with a spatula. Sprinkle the rest of the Greek seasoning on top.
Bake, stirring once, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the cauliflower is tender and charred in places, 20 minutes.
Serve the chicken mixture with the Lemon Garlic sauce on top or on the side.
