Traditional Greek Roast Chicken with Potatoes



Ingredients:

  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • A few Large Potatoes
  • 1 Large Lemon
  • Dried Oregano
  • Fresh-Cracked Pepper
  • Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Water
  • Fresh Bread
  • Feta Cheese
  • Kalamata Olives


Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place whole chicken in a roasting pan. Peel and chop potatoes into large chunks, and place them into the roast pan around the chicken. Add water to pan evenly. Pour
EVOO over chicken and potatoes (enough that everything is well coated and some oil is collecting in the pockets of the pan). Cut lemon into several large chunks. Squeeze lemon juice over chicken and potatoes, and stuff the lemon chunks in or around the chicken. Sprinkle a good amount of pepper and oregano over chicken and potatoes.

Roast for 15 mins at 450 degrees, then turn temperature down to 350 degrees. Continue roasting until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and juices run clear.Serve with sides of fresh bread, feta cheese, and Kalamata olives.

 

Bon Appetit :)
