Tips to Perfect Garlic Lemon Chicken and Potatoes
-Line your baking dish with aluminum foil to make it truly-mess free cleanup- simply lift and toss the foil when you’re done!
-Check the temperature of your chicken or get an oven safe probe thermometer to know when to remove the foil and start crisping under the broiler. You only want to cook your chicken under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the outer skin – you don’t want to have the broiler take away all the delicious juicy flavor you’ve made by over-broiling it!

One Pot Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes Recipe
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 4 chicken about 6 oz each, or 2 large chicken breasts, cut in half to make 4
- 1 lb potatoes fingerling, washed thoroughly and sliced in half (slice into quarters if needed to keep a somewhat even size for all)
- 10 cloves garlic
- 1 lemon sliced into rounds
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 tbsp greek oregano
- 1 tbsp dried basil
- 1 tbsp dried thyme
- 1 tbsp fresh cracked pepper
- 2 tbsp salt celtic sea
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a glass baking dish, drizzle olive oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the dish.
Add chicken breasts and potatoes to dish and sprinkle lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper over.
Stir to mix.
Add garlic and lemon to dish, placing over chicken and potatoes.
Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake, covered, for 20 minutes, until chicken is white and firm.
Flip chicken to other side and stir potatoes, and cook until lightly browned and 165 degrees internal temperature, flipping every 5 minutes - which will be about 10-15 minutes total.
If chicken is 155-160 degrees internal temoerature, and you'd like a little darker color on the dish, turn the broiler to high and finish cooking under broiler to get a lovely browned, crispy finish to the chicken.
Serve immediately over rice, pasta, or vegetables - leftovers are fabulous over salads or in wraps and sandwiches!
