Easy Greek Chicken and Potatoes – This simple dish is prepared in single pan. It is an easy weeknight dinner and one of our family favorites.
Easy Greek chicken and Potatoes is really a quick and easy meal to make. It’s one of those recipes that once you prepare it once, you can almost prepare it off the top of your head. The thing that is most time consuming I would say (and it really isn’t) Is I like to cook the chicken on the cooktop for a few minutes .
It takes about 5 minutes. I just like how the skin is extra crispy that way. You could skip this as the skin is crispy anyway but it’s just not as crispy as I like. Try it both ways and see what you think.
In a small bowl squeeze the juice of 2 1/2 lemons, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, black pepper, oregano, minced garlic. Mix well and pour over chicken, onions and potatoes. I also add 1/2 lemon cut into slices .
So you see this is really such a simple dish. And my family loves it so it is a win win for me.
I love the lemony garlic flavor of this Easy Greek chicken and Potatoes!
