    Ingredients

  • 1 large chicken
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 3/4 tablespoon dried oregano (if you can get the Greek stuff, youre really cooking!)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 -6 large potatoes, peeled and cut into big wedges (probably 1/4s)
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 -3 minced garlic cloves

    How to make it

  1. 1. STEP

    (I often add about 1 tsp of crumbled, dried rosemary to the potatoes and 1/2 a teaspoon to the chicken- this is fantastic and it then becomes oregano-rosemary-lemon-garlic chicken).

  2. 2. STEP

    Wash the chicken well and pat dry.

  3. 3. STEP

    Combine all the remaining ingredients and massage the chicken, inside and out, with this mixture. Put the chicken in a big bowl and put in the fridge while you prepare the potatoes.

  4. 4. STEP

    Put the potatoes and all remaining ingredients into a large baking pan. Wash your hands and put them in the pan and toss the potatoes around to coat with other ingredients.

  5. 5. STEP

    Put in the oven and crank up the heat to 250°C (480F).

  6. 6. STEP

    Start roasting the potatoes and when theyre golden-brown, stir them to bring the white sides up and push to the side of the pan to make room in the middle for the chicken.

  7. 7. STEP

    If all the water has evaporated, and potatoes have started to stick to pan, add 1/2 cup more.

  8. 8. STEP

    Add the chicken, breast-side down, and pour any juices that have accumulated in bowl over.

  9. 9. STEP

    Return to very hot oven and roast until chicken is golden-brown.

  10. 10. STEP

    Turn over, breast-side up and continue roasting until chicken is nearly as golden-brown on other side.

  11. 11. STEP

    At this point, I turn the oven off- dont open it- and leave the chicken in for another 1/2 an hour. I like to think Im saving energy this way, but it also cooks the chicken beautifully.

  12. 12. STEP

    In all, Id say from when you put the potatoes into the cold oven to when you remove the chicken to carve after sitting in off oven for 1/2 an hour, were talking 2 hours.

  13. 13. STEP

    Serve with pan juices.
