Default Lemon-Garlic Chicken with Potatoes


Popular recipe among those of Greek ethnicity....

1 whole chicken ( about 3 to 3-1/2 pounds) CUT INTO PARTS

8 medium red potatoes, peeled but "whole"/ or as many more as you like

salt & freshly ground black pepper

2 lemons, juice of

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon dried oregano or more

1 large bulb of garlic ( separated into cloves and skins removed or can use two heads!)

1/2 cup sliced green olives or black Greek olives...or Italian olives

8 tablespoons chicken broth ( more if needed to add to the pan while cooking, can use water instead of the broth)

Set oven to 425 degrees F (set oven rack to bottom position).

Grease a roasting pan (use a pan large enough to hold the
chicken halves and potatoes).

Season the chicken parts on both sides with salt and black pepper, then place skin side down in the roasting pan.

In a bowl season the potatoes with salt and pepper then place the potatoes around the chicken.

Sprinkle the whole garlic cloves and olives around the potatoes.

In a bowl whisk the juice of 2 lemons with the olive oil then drizzle over the chicken and potatoes in the pan.

Sprinkle the dried oregano over the top.

Drizzle 2 tablespoons broth into the 4 corners of the pan (do NOT drizzle on top of the chicken or potatoes).

Roast uncovered for about 60 minutes

Remove from oven turn the chicken skin side up, drizzle the pan juices on top the chicken and potatoes, if the broth has cooked down then drizzle about 1/3 to 1/2 cup more into the sides of the pan if needed.

Continue to cook for another 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, you may want to baste with pan juices a few times during cooking (cooking times will vary slightly depending on the size of the chicken).

Serve the chicken with pan juices.

NICE WITH A RICE PILAF plus veggie of your choice.
