Ingredients

Let’s kick things off with a friendly lineup of ingredients that will bring this Mediterranean Lemon Chicken and Potato Skillet to life:

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, diced into bite-sized chunks
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Creating the Magic

Preheat and Prep:

Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). While it’s heating up, take a moment to pat dry the chicken thighs with paper towels. This helps ensure a crispy skin during roasting.

Tango of Flavors:

Whisk together the olive oil, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl. This concoction is your ticket to a Greek flavor explosion.

Potato Party:

Spread the diced potatoes evenly across the bottom of a large oven-safe skillet. Pour half of the prepared lemon and herb mixture over the potatoes, tossing them gently to coat. This ensures each spud gets a taste of the goodness.

Chicken Nest:

Nestle the chicken thighs into the skillet, skin side up. Drizzle the remaining lemon and herb mixture over the chicken, ensuring it’s well-coated. Now, lay lemon slices over the chicken for an extra citrusy freshness.

Into the Oven:

Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and let the magic happen. Roast for about 45-50 minutes or until the chicken skin is golden and crispy and the potatoes are fork-tender.

Garnish with Joy:

Once out of the oven, sprinkle fresh parsley over the dish. This adds a pop of color and enhances the overall aroma and taste.

Serve and Soar

Bring the One-Skillet Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes to the table and watch your loved ones marvel at the delightful spread. The juicy chicken, infused with lemony goodness, pairs perfectly with the golden, herb-kissed potatoes. Each bite is a journey to the sunny landscapes of Greece right in the comfort of your home.

Tips and Tricks

Golden Rule of Crispy Skin:

Ensure your chicken thighs are thoroughly dry before roasting. This helps achieve that coveted crispy skin we all love.

Uniformity is Key:

Aim for uniform-sized potato chunks to ensure even cooking. This guarantees that each potato bit is a perfectly roasted delight.

Don’t Rush the Roast:

Allow the dish the time it needs in the oven. The slow roast is the secret to succulent chicken and tender, flavorful potatoes.
