I tried this recipe on the recommendation from Midwestguy, and all I can say is that it's absolutely wonderful. I followed the suggestion of marinating the chicken in the olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 cup white wine, oregano, rosemary and salt and pepper. I just used the marinade over the chicken when it was time to put it in the oven. Fantastic! After I took it out of the oven I put a generous handful of feta cheese over it. YUM! Thank you for such a great recipe!
This was really good! I do wish the lemon flavor had been a little stronger but other than that it was great. Next time I may try marinating the chicken ahead of time as another reviewer suggested.
Opa !!!! Opa !!! This is great!!! I love this savory dish and it's easy to make!!! The chicken was a perfect 180 degrees F in this cooking time and the potatoes were soft and cooked through. The dressing and flavors were wonderful, I love the oregano and capers, and I put just a bit of dried rosemary sprigs for the rosemary to be subtle in flavor and it was perfect!! Love the lemony juices that cook down into a wonderful flavoring for the potatoes. Will definitely make this one again and again, thanks so much!!!
I tried this and it is not for me. No one in my family would try it and I ended up ordering pizza for dinner. My husband hates pizza but choose to eat it over this dish. I ended up pulling the chicken off the bones the next day and reusing it in a chicken marsala dish.
This was just OK for me. I think the potatoes were just too lemony for me. My Dad makes a similar dish (without the lemon), but I can't seem to duplicate the wonderful taste of his chix and potatoes. But, what I may do, and what might help is to take some from this recipe and combine with my Dads.
YUMMY!!! This was delcious and easy to make... it had a wonderful greek flair and the addition of the capers (don't leave em out!!).. excellent. Like another reviewer.. i also marinated my chicken legs in olive oil, herbs, lemon juice and white wine for about 5 hours.. I paired this dish with balsamic oven roasted asparagus.. Thank you so much Kittencal.. yet another winner!!
Delicious! I followed another reviewer's suggestion and marinated the chicken with the oil and herbs and 1/2C of white wine for several hours first. I also browned the chicken before putting in the over.
The only prep that was even approaching difficult was cutting up the potatoes. Very fast to get together and slide into the oven. I liked it quite a lot, but it did not appeal to my sons (both over 18, so it's not a "kid" thing). I would not hesitate to serve this to company - the boys will just have to eat elsewhere when I do :)
Outstanding!!The only thing is I wish is I had french bread or buns to sop up that wonderful juice,next time,thanks.
