      Loved, loved, loved this recipe!! My family raved about it. I made no changes, I used Russet potatoes and I ended up cooking it about an hour at 325 and then upped it to 350 for another half an hour. I kept it covered until the last 5 min, took the lid off and broiled it a little to crisp it up. It was just gorgeous and the potatoes were awesome. I thought they'd be greasy, with the olive oil and the chicken grease, but I was wrong, they were perfect and actually the best part of the meal. Thanks so much for this recipe, it's a keeper!!

      I am not sure how long a whole chicken would take to cook, but the chicken breasts I used were definitely done. I used a lot less oil and fresh oregano. We added extra lemon at the table since the lemon was subtle. Good one pot dish!
