Greek Lemon Chicken and Potato Bake


I love one-pan meals, especially when no measuring and exact ingredients are involved. I made this one Sunday when I didn't want to babysit my food in the kitchen! Turned out great, and I served it with tzatziki sauce.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Cook Time:
1 hr
Total Time:
1 hr 10 mins
4 to 6 servings


  • 4 chicken leg quarters

  • 1 (24 ounce) bag small potatoes

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 lemons, juiced, divided

  • 2 tablespoons dried basil

  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lemon and herb seasoning

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh green beans


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a large baking sheet with sides.

  2. Place chicken quarters on prepared baking sheet. Stir potatoes, olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and lemon herb seasoning together in a large bowl to coat potatoes. Arrange potatoes around chicken on baking sheet. Pour about 3/4 of oil mixture over chicken, reserving remaining oil; drizzle remaining lemon juice over chicken and potatoes.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes; shake baking sheet to loosen potatoes, then continue baking for 15 minutes. Place green beans in reserved oil mixture; toss to coat. Remove chicken mixture from oven; pour green bean mixture over chicken and potatoes.

  4. Return pan to the oven; bake until green beans are tender with a bite, chicken is no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

If you want to brown the tops of chicken and potatoes more, place pan under a preheated broiler for about 5 minutes, to get a bit crispy. And don't forget the tzatziki sauce!
