Why I Love This Recipe

My family loves this Greek dish. If you love lemon and garlic you will love this. Everyone that has tried it gives it 5 stars. So Yummy!!This is one of the easiest recipes to make, and one of the most tempting to eat.

Adjust the garlic down if it's not a favorite, and the classic tastes of lemon and oregano will still make this dish uniquely Greek.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 1/4 - 3 3/4 pound chicken, cut into quarters

3 1/2 pounds of potatoes

The juice from 2-3 medium lemons

2 teaspoons of salt

1 heaping tablespoon of oregano

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

8 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1/2 cup of olive oil

1 1/2 cups of water


Rinse the chicken and pat dry.

Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters, lengthwise.

Salt and pepper the chicken and potatoes.

Transfer chicken to a roasting pan, and add potatoes, on and around the chicken.

Add oregano, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice, distributing evenly across the pan.

Add water and roast uncovered at 355°F (180°C) for a total of 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Half way through (50 minutes), turn the chicken.

Note: Check periodically to make sure there is still a little water in the pan. If needed, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

my cousin married a Greek and this looks like the chicken he would make, if so, yum yum, but if not, this certainly looks great and will be trying soon.

My husbund and I are lovers of lemon and garlic, I will make this tomarrow for supper.

Mmm this sounds yummy. I have only tried asian lemon chicken but this really sounds easy to make and delicious.
Thanks for sharing :)
