Ingredients

  • 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 pounds chicken (cut into quarters)
  • 3 1/2 pounds potatoes
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (juice from 2 to 3 medium lemons)
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F/176 C.
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters, lengthwise. Salt and pepper the chicken and potatoes.

All about Kotopoulo Skorthato

In Greek: κοτόπουλο σκορδάτο, pronounced koh-TOH-poo-loh skor-THAH-toh

This is a traditional Greek chicken dish served at festivals and holiday celebrations that happens to be one of the easiest recipes to make, and one of the most tempting to eat. You simply roast chicken pieces and potatoes in an oregano, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice mixture. You can lessen the garlic if it is not one of your favorite flavors; don’t worry—the classic tastes of lemon and oregano will still make this dish uniquely Greek. 

Make sure you use Mediterranean oregano for this dish—even better, a Greek variety. You don’t want to use Mexican oregano as it has hints of licorice and citrus while the Greek version is more savory and earthy tasting. 

Because the recipe includes chicken and potatoes all you need to round out the meal is a nice salad of cucumbers and tomatoes
