Greek Homestyle Chicken - Greek Recipe (Main Course)


Recipe
This dish is a common meal It's incredibly delicious, and while it's cooking, the smell will have everyone in the house salivating It cooks in an open pan, but I find the chicken stays moister if you cover it (with aluminum foil or some- thing) for the first half-hour or so Either way, it tastes great!

Four pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Juice of two lemons
Four or five potatoes, peeled and sliced french-fry style
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 to 1 cup of water
one head of garlic, the cloves peeled
Add whole oregano, salt, and pepper to taste
Recipe Method
Place chicken in a shallow baking tray
Arrange potatoes around chicken pieces
Scatter whole peeled cloves of garlic around chicken and potatoes
Mix together lemon juice and olive oil, and pour evenly over chicken and potatoes
Add water until potatoes are just about covered Add salt, pepper to taste
Cover chicken and pototoes with generous amounts of oregano
Bake at 350 degrees, until tops of chicken are reddish brown
Turn chicken, stir potatoes, and sprinkle on more oregano
If potatoes aren't at least half-covered with liquid, add water Return to oven for about 15-20 minutes
Chicken is done when both sides a lightly browned and potatoes are soft when touched with a fork Serve with a crusty bread, or with pita bread
