In this simple, delicious dish, we’re marinating chicken in a bit of creamy tzatziki (a traditional Greek cucumber-yogurt sauce brightened with lemon and garlic), then using the rest to spoon on top of the chicken after roasting. We’re finishing it with a sprinkle of herby za’atar, which also coats a vibrant medley of potatoes, zucchini, and onion

Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Combine in a bowl. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place in a bowl; add half the tzatziki. Turn to coat. Set aside to marinate, turning occasionally, at least 10 minutes.
