I don’t receive got the loose energy or courage to cater for a living, but if I did, this Greek lemon chicken as well as potatoes would last 1 of my go-to entrees, as well as non simply for big, fatty weddings. It’s a proven crowd-pleaser, uncomplicated to make, as well as slowly on the wallet.
I had a whole chicken to use, but I actually similar to exercise this alongside all leg/thigh sections, which tin roast longer, as well as that agency fifty-fifty to a greater extent than caramelized goodness. If yous exercise role a whole chicken, yous tin withdraw the thorax sections from the roasting pan earlier the thighs, as well as laid upward the night meat longer, but I couldn’t last bothered, as well as the results were delicious.
The extra tater crusting is an optional step, every bit is turning the drippings into a quick sauce, but both exclusively receive got a few minutes, as well as actually raise the dish. Like I said at the halt of the clip, this is something I could easily brand in 1 trial a week, as well as the leftovers are extremely picnic friendly. I promise yous plough over this a receive soon. Enjoy!
