Greek Chicken & Potatoes

Last evening I prepared one of the recipes from Liz's "Recipes From Home" cookbook. The chicken was very flavorful and the skin was nicely browned. The potatoes were tender with a nice hint of lemon flavor. With Liz's kind permission, here is the recipe:

Liz's Greek Chicken & Potatoes
Serves 4

1 chicken, cut into pieces
6 potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
4 large garlic cloves, halved
Salt & Pepper to taste 
3/4 cup chicken stock
3/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried oregano, crumbled

  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees
  • Arrange chicken, potatoes and garlic in a large roasting pan
  • Season well with salt & pepper
  • Pour stock over
  • Whisk olive oil, lemon juice and oregano to combine. Pour evenly over the chicken and potatoes
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through and golden brown and the potatoes are tender, basting occasionally with pan juices, about 1 1/4 hours.
