This is such an easy and tasty dinner. The lemon and oregano go great with the chicken and potatoes. A simple dish that is full of flavor. Thank you, Mary Ellen for sharing this recipe. :-)

This was truly a great roast chicken recipe. I basted it every 30 minutes and cooked it for the full 2 1/2 hours. It looked gorgeous when it came out of the oven and was absolutely delicious. Thank you so much. I will make this many times.

This was great! I'm always leary of using too much oregano, so I only used about 1 1/2 tsps, but this recipe was excellent! I loved the lemon flavor. I used an already cut up chicken (pick of the chix) and it still came out super. I also sprinkled some plain breadcrumbs on top of the chicken, not even enough to cover it, to give it a little added texture. I roasted for an hour covered, and then an hour uncovered, while basting it occasionally. Great and perfectly crispy skin. Even my picky 3 and 5 year olds liked it. Will definitely make again. Thanks Mary Ellen!

THIS WAS DELICIOUS! Instead of baking potatoes, I used fingerling potatoes. Aside from that I followed this to a tee. What a delicious flavor and the chicken was SO moist!

Very good basic roast chicken recipe. The chicken is moist and tender with a nice flavor. The potatoes soak up some of the chicken juices and are wonderful! I had a 5 lb. chicken and it took a little under 2 hours. I also used red potatoes instead of russets. Very good! Thanks!

I'm embarrassed to say that at 33, I've never made a roasted chicken. I followed this recipe to make it for the first time, and my chicken turned out soooo delicious and moist - made me look like a pro! :) I basted it every 30 mins and cooked for 2 hrs. I will definitely use this recipe all the time now, thank you SO much!!!

This is a great and easy recipe. I used olive oil instead of butter, vermouth (for white wine) instead of chix broth and added fresh garlic into a marinade that I poured over the roast.

This dish is amazing! My family can't get enough of it, and now my friends are addicted too. So fast, so yum! Just add a little salad and some tzaziki and you're off! Thanx for this one!!!
