Kotopoulo me patates

chicken-potatoes-386


Lemon, oregano and olive oil, the triad at the heart of Greek cooking, infuses the potatoes and chicken in this heart-warming dish. This is a great fall back meal on a busy day, and it makes for an impressive meal for a dinner party too. The prep time is small but the taste is big!  the secret to this meal is the salt. A potato is only tasty if it has been married intimately with salt.
