  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Pour chicken and marinade into the prepared baking pan. Arrange potatoes around the chicken.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This recipe needs salt! Yes this should be called Greek because oregano and lemon are quintessential Greek ingredients. They use it on everything! Where we have sour cream and onion flavored potato chips they have oregano flavored potato chips. And Greek oregano is the best oregano. So throw in some salt kalamatas or feta anything that will add the punch of salt this recipe so desperately needs. Read More

I saw this recipe yesterday AM had chicken thighs so made it last night. We love chicken thighs and this was very tasty. I did however use Greek Seasoning instead of oregano and also added some halved Kalamara olives. I couldn't figure out why this dish was called "Greek" w/o anything authentically Greek in the recipe. Perhaps calling it "Greek Style" would have made more sense. I gave it 4 s but that was after I made a couple of changes to the original recipe. Read More

This turned out pretty good. The potatoes did not quite get all the way done and they didn't have very much flavor. I recommend putting them on the bottom instead of the top and that should remedy both. When I oven bake thighs I leave the skin on for color and crispiness but that was the only change I made.
