Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts or leg quarters
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon slices and fresh oregano for garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Place the chicken and potato wedges in a large roasting pan. Pour the olive oil and lemon juice mixture over them. Toss to coat the chicken and potatoes evenly.
  • Pour the chicken broth into the pan. This will keep the chicken moist and add flavor to the potatoes.
  • Place the roasting pan in the preheated oven and roast for about 1 hour or until the chicken is golden brown, and the potatoes are tender. Turn the chicken and potatoes occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  • Once done, remove from the oven, and let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh oregano and lemon slices before serving.
