Greek style lemon and olive oil baked chicken maryland with potatoes and herbs.

Baked greek style chicken with potatoes

One pot meal has always been a favourite of mine.
For obvious reason, its easy to prepare, clean and less washing up after!

This baked Greek chicken is one of those one pot meal or one tray meal that I would bake many times over.

The Best Chicken Marinade

Nothing can go wrong with lemon, olive oil and rosemary as the main ingredients in any marinade.

Flavours of mediterranean in one baking dish, hits all the right notes.
And the potatoes just melt in the mouth, so to speak :D.

You can either use chicken breast pieces, drumsticks or wings for this recipe, but I opt for chicken maryland.

Refrigerate overnight. Greek recipe chicken
8) Baked to golden perfection!!!

How long should I marinate the chicken?

Do note that you can either marinate for 3 hours prior to cooking (especially with chicken breast), again I opt to marinate overnight since I am using chicken maryland.

By marinating these chicken maryland pieces overnight, I find that the flavours of lemon, olive oil, herbs are more intense on the meat and potatoes.

What to serve with Greek Chicken?

Its almost a complete meal, with potatoes added to the pan.
We have protein and carb!
The only thing to add to be a complete meal is some steamed or roast vegetables.

Garlic and Parmesan roasted broccoli would be nice to add to complete this meal.

Otherwise, another suggestion is to steam any vegetables!

Enjoy :D
