Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine lemon juice, chicken broth, olive oil, garlic, and oregano in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, seal bag, and shake so chicken is well coated with marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight.

  • 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

Only flavor I tasted was lemon. And the chicken didn’t brown at all. I made exactly per the recipe except dividing in half for two people. Chicken was done in 45 minutes; potatoes were just done but had zero flavor. Not a keeper recipe for us due to lack of flavor. 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.

Everyone LOVED it! I used boneless\skinless chicken thighs, and added a couple of other spices (red pepper, Olive Garden's salad dressing, and Cavender's Greek seasoning). It was SOOO AWESOME!! Thank you! Read More

Not too great. Like another reviewer said, it needs salt. I also found it to have way too much liquid. After 75 minutes, I removed potatoes and chicken to a sheet pan for browning. While it smelled delicious as it was cooking, there just was hardly any flavor. Read More

I added salt and pepper to the marinade. And coated the potatoes with it before putting the dish in the oven. That gave everything more flavor and helped the potatoes brown. A couple of minutes to broil at the end browns the chicken nicely. Read More

I made it exactly as the recipe says. The flavors were amazing together but the chicken was done while the potatoes were still hard. Next time I will skip the potatoes and will use bone-in, skin-on chicken. Read More
