Greek Lemon Chicken and Potato Bake

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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!

This smelled so good while baking! You know it's good when your picky 13 yr old boy tells you it's the best chicken he's ever had!! I used 6 bone-in/skin-on thighs. I rendered the fat off the sk...

Not really a review, but more of an observation— the recipe says to take the temp near the bone, but that is not good practice. It needs to read 165 in the thickest part of the meat AWAY from th...

Made this many times, being Greek! To kick it up a notch add a lot of chopped Garlic all over it. When done remove chicken and kick up to 450 and let the potatoes get nice and crispy, be sure to...

I made this for the first time and followed recipe pretty much exactly the way it's written only I doubled it because there are 6 of us. I did use bone in/skin on chicken thighs instead of leg...

I was skeptical of the large amount of seasoning in this recipe (I am notorious for under-seasoning), but I followed to a T & WOWZER, soooo good! My 10 yr. old said he'd like to invite his frien...

I usually don't take the time to review things but this was such an amazing hit in my house that I had too. 2 teenagers and 1 hubby voted this the best chicken I have ever made. I made it as sta...

Well, wasn't this easy and delicious! I used Greek seasoning instead of the lemon and herb; two bone-in skin-on chicken breast halves that I wanted to use up; frozen green beans instead of fresh...

The chicken was great - I used chicken breasts (2) and all of the seasoning - I will cut back of the seasoning next time - or use the dry seasoning for sprinkling on vegies or salad. The chicken...
