Greek baked chicken with potatoes is a delicious combination of chicken, potatoes, and olives. It is spiced with salt, pepper, and oregano. Combined with olive olive oil and lemon juice, the dish is simply delightful.
You can add juice of 1 lemon to make it more sour. Add additional spices such as thyme or rosemary. Or, add more oregano if you wish. Green olives will do but I prefer to use black olives in this recipe. You can omit them if you want but I find it adds more flavor to the dish. Don’t worry about burning olive oil in the oven, it will not burn in oven I promise.
