Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large resealable plastic freezer bag, add the lemon juice, oregano, garlic, 1/4 cup oil, 1 tbsp. salt, and 1 tbsp. pepper and seal tightly; shake to mix the marinade. Add the chicken to the bag and seal tightly; turn a few times to coat the chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Drizzle a rimmed baking sheet with oil. Scatter the potatoes evenly over the baking sheet. Place the chicken, skin-side up, on top of the potatoes. Pour the marinade from the bag over the chicken and potatoes.

  • Bake the chicken and potatoes until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chicken leg registers 165°, about 45 minutes. Preheat the broiler. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Broil the potatoes until browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken to the baking sheet. Broil until the skin is crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken and potatoes to a platter. Pour the pan juices into a pitcher. Serve the chicken and potatoes with the pan juices and crusty bread.
