View Full Version : Lemon chicken and baby potatoes

09-21-2011, 02:21 PM
Someone on my food allergy list asked for this, and I thought, hey, why not post here? Quantities were for a lot of chicken - marinade originally was for 12 bone-in breasts. I use 4 breasts (sometimes cut in half, but they get kinda dry that way from overcooking), and 8 or so bone-in thighs. My family LOVES this!

Roasted lemon chicken and baby potatoes
Chicken pieces
Small potatoes

c fresh lemon juice (5-6)
Scant c Dijon
c olive oil
5 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 Tb lemon zest
opt c parsley

Soak chicken pieces in marinade overnight

Wash potatoes and cut in to quarters or so. Toss with olive oil and salt in roasting pan. Make sure there is plenty of room, may need two pans

Heat oven to 400 with potatoes in oven while heating. Cook about 5-10 minutes after preheated, than stir and add chicken, skin side up.

Roast 30 minutes, turn down to 350, and roast another 20 - 30 minutes. Make gravy from drippings

Yes, it is definitely a keeper. The chicken was great but I think I could live on those potatoes. Is it because you start them before the oven is preheated? I have never seen a recipe do it that way before. AND I even made gravy!

Idk, they just come out so creamy! I actually only started them before to save time, but they are better if they cook somewhat longer than the chicken.
