Greek Restaurant Style Lemon Potatoes (with Chicken)

“What I say is that if a man really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.”

For tonight’s dinner I made this super easy recipe: Greek Lemon Potatoes with Chicken. A quick meal to put together on a weeknight when time is limited. Everything goes into one pan and while it bakes I can make a salad, do yoga or write this blog! If you’ve eaten at a Greek restaurant before and love the lemon potatoes they serve, these are it! I hope you like them. 

You will need: (serves 2-3)

4 – 6 skin-on, bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs

2 teaspoons of salt

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white or black pepper

1 teaspoon dried or fresh rosemary ( I used fresh from my garden)

½ cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice

½ cup of olive oil

6 garlic cloves chopped 

4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters

⅔ cups of vegetable or  chicken broth


Preheat oven to 425 (F).  Lightly grease a large roasting pan.  

In a large bowl add the Chicken,  salt, oregano, pepper and rosemary.  

Add the fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic to the bowl and add the potatoes to the bowl with the chicken. Mix everything together until chicken and potatoes are evenly coated with oil, lemon juice and spices.

Transfer chicken and potatoes to the roasting pan, reserving marinade. Place the potatoes among chicken thighs then drizzle with veggie or chicken broth. Pour the remainder of the marinade over chicken and potatoes.

Bake for 20 minutes then pull the pan out and flip the chicken over and gently toss potatoes. Place back in oven and bake for another 25 minutes until chicken is browned and cooked through. Pull the chicken out onto a serving platter and cover to keep warm.

Set the oven to broil. Return the potatoes to the oven for 3 minutes. Broil until potatoes start to crisp on top. Transfer potatoes to the serving platter with chicken.

The simplicity and rich flavour of this meal makes it the perfect comfort food.  For a complete Greek meal, serve with rice or pita, Greek salad and tzatziki.  My Tzatziki recipe HERE
