  • 6 chicke thighs or assorted chicken pieces of your choice
  • 2 medium lemons
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp ground oregano
  • 9 garlic cloves minced
  • 6 medium white potatoes cut into wedges
  • 1/2 medium onion sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

     Salt chicken breast and cook chicken in 2 tbsp olive oil until just browned on both sides. About 3 minutes each side.

    Lay the chicken on the sheet pan.  Lay potatoes and onion around chicken pieces 

    In a small bowl mix  lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, and minced garlic. 

    Pour over chicken and potatoes making sure potatoes are all covered. I use a basting brush to make sure chicken is well covered.

    Roast the chicken and potatoes until both are golden and crispy and the chicken is cooked through, about 50 minutes - 1 hour  depending on your oven.
