Greek Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing
Such a simple recipe, smelled so good! Made recipe exact, except during the last 30 minutes of cooking I added 2 cans, drained, sweet peas. Chicken was so moist. Definite keeper!
This was a 5-rating after using some suggestions from other reviewers: I sprinkled lemon pepper seasoning on the chicken in addition to the oregano and I added garlic to the lemon-butter sauce for enhanced flavoring. I did thicken the sauce for a light gravy. I had a lot of extra mashed potatoes after Thanksgiving, so I did not add the potatoes to the pan this first time. I will use Yukon Gold potatoes from here on since that's our favorite spud! Husband and 2 sons loved this chicken dish!
Excellent. My kids love this.
this is very moset it i add carrots to mine and it make it even more better
I started using the juice of one fresh lemon, and then put the lemon halves inside the chicken while roasting. It really adds extra flavor to the breast meat, which I use to make chicken salad. I'm going to add the garlic like jayho127 suggested next time.
I thought this was a little bland. I will make it again because the hint of flavor was very good. Next time I will add more lemon and pepper, or use a lemon pepper seasoning. I love that combination. My husband and son felt the same way.
I add a few minced cloves of garlic to the butter/lemon sauce and it really tastes great!
We love this recipe. The lemon and oregano are wonderful together, and they make the gravy extra special. After the first several times, I cut down on the butter, using just enough to rub on the skin to make it crispy. I use Yukon Gold potatoes, and I don't peel them since the skin is so thin. Excellent!
Super easy and very moist and tasty!
This was wonderful, especially the very flavorful potatoes. I just added a green vegetable and had a complete meal, along with leftover chicken for another recipe. I will definitely make this again.
