Lemon-Rosemary-Garlic Chicken and Potatoes

    This was great. I added Brussel sprouts before topping with olive oil/lemon mixture. Also was making a large batch and didn't have a roasting pan large enough, so we browned the chicken on the stove top then transferred to glass casserole dishes, added potatoes (cut larger ones) and Brussel sprouts then topped with rest of ingredients.

    A big hit with my entire family. Easy to get started, then let it bake while I do other chores. Simple cleanup, too. We have a new family favorite!

    Would boneless breasts work?

    Delicious! Followed recipe exactly but added bone in breast as my husband likes white meat. Loved flavor. Husband is not a big chicken lover...ask me to make again!

    I am preparing this for dinner tonight…with Brussel sprouts and more sauce!!

    Really easy and delicious! I used less garlic, and next time I will double the sauce, as mine cooked out while it was roasting. I may make this for an informal dinner with friends as all you have to add is a salad and bread, and you don't have to do anything to it once you put it in the oven.

    Divine. Did 2 bone-in breast + 2 each of thighs and legs. The best chicken we have had in awhile. Definite keeper.

    Amazing and easy dish. Iv also tried it with Sage instead of Rosemary, and its also very good! I had to add some chicken stock, otherwise I end up with no 'sauce'.

    Everyone loved it. I used chicken breast, bone in..tender and moist!!

    If your potatoes are not very small, I would cut them in half to absorb more of the pan juices. Otherwise, it is a very good recipe. I agree to increase the sauce in the future.

    This was great! Added white wine and onion in lieu of capers. Such a great sauce to go with the french bread.

    This one scores a permanent front seat in our meal rotation. My husband says: Make this...a lot. Followed the recipe exactly - came out perfectly.

    I browned the chicken in batches in my frying pan then snugged it all in and put the frying pan right in the oven. Worked well. I will make more sauce next time using chicken stock so as not to add any extra oil.

  • Cynruthie Posted: 01/13/14

    Fantastic flavors. Definitely will make again. However, there was no "sauce" that was mentioned to serve.

    I used the chicken thighs I had used to make chicken soup. then followed the recipe except I cooked it at a lower temperature. I sliced the potatos. Great dish and all my company loved it as well. More Sauce next time, great idea.

    Very easy and everyone enjoyed!

    This one really is worthy of 5 stars. I used all thighs and no legs and followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using a large cast iron skillet for mine and it worked perfectly. I also sliced the potatoes because it allows them to get a crispy side to them in the iron skillet. This not only tastes amazing but will also make your kitchen smell amazing. A side of the leftover sauce in a small dish is also amazing for dipping bread. Definitely give it a try!

    Made as written and was very pleased! My sauce cooked off, too, but it might have been too much lemon for my husband anyway. :) An easy, delicious recipe! Will definitely make again!

    The whole family enjoyed it. I added onions and substituted green olives for the capers.

  • sallyweller Posted: 01/23/14

    Really delicious! I will be making this again soon. Made exactly as written but left out the potatoes (no small ones available) and added a sliced onion. Easy, inexpensive and tons of great flavor.

  • TyIceTea Posted: 02/18/14

    I double the recipe for the sauce to use as a marinade for the chicken, and I add white wine, parsley, and red pepper flakes. Soooo good! Even picky eaters will devour this dish. It is fool proof too. Searing the chicken before going into the oven is really the trick in getting the flavor sealed in and having nice, crisp skin.

    Just made this tonight for my family - it was a big hit. I will probably increase the "sauce" as well - you really want a lot to eat with the bread. So Yummy and very easy

    This is delicious just the way it is but I like to toss in a pint of cherry or grape tomatoes. To me it just kicks it up a notch, but I'm a sucker for those little tomatoes roasted with chicken.

    Okay, so I made it tonight, it was very good; but, I will double the sauce and add chunked onion, parsley and crushed red pepper. I also will do the chicken on the stove in a frying PAN and then add everything in the roasting PAN. I also will decrease the temp to 400 and increase the time to 50-60 mins.

  • janerj Posted: 01/14/14

    Awesome. Super delicious. The whole cloves of garlic were tasty treats! I did not add the lemon slices, and removed the skins from chicken. Based on comments about the sauce, I added a cup of chicken stock when I put it in the oven. Kept it moist and juicy. Will definitely make again.
