Best Greek Chicken And Potato Dinner

Best Greek Chicken And Potato Dinner

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 to 5 pieces chicken bone in skin on (I used 2 breasts and 3 legs)
  • Salt
  • 4 gold potatoes (about 2 lb) scrubbed clean cut into thin wedges
  • 1 medium yellow onion halved then sliced
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp quality extra virgin olive oil plus 1/2 cup more for later
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 12 fresh garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried Rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 12 pitted quality kalamata olives optional
  • Fresh parsley for garnish
  • Sides (optional)
  • Greek Salad
  • Tzatziki Sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pat chicken dry and season generously with salt (lift the skins and apply salt underneath as well). Leave at room temperature for 30 minutes. Pat dry again if needed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Place the potato wedges and onions on large sheet pan. Season with salt and 1 tsp black pepper.
  4. In a large skillet heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken skin-side down to brown (about 5 t0 7 minutes ) then flip over and sear briefly another 3 minutes or so. (do this in batches if you need to). Transfer from skillet to the prepared sheet pan nestled between the potato wedges keeping everything in one layer.
  5. In a small mixing bowl whisk together 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil with lemon juice minced garlic rosemary and nutmeg. Pour all over the chicken and potatoes; lift chicken pieces so some of the juice will flow under and toss potatoes until well-coated.
  6. Now pour chicken broth into the pan but do not pour over the chicken. Add lemon slices on top.
  7. Bake in heated oven uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour until chicken and potatoes are tender. Occasionally flip the potatoes over. (Chicken’s internal temperature should register at 165 degrees F)
  8. Remove from heat and add kalamata olives if you like. Garnish with a little bit of fresh parsley. Serve with Greek salad Taztaziki sauce and a side of pita bread. Enjoy!
