Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Place chicken breasts into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Brush lemon juice mixture over chicken.
  3. Place potatoes, red bell pepper strips, red onion, and lemon slices in a bowl, pour remaining lemon juice mixture over vegetables, and toss to coat. Arrange vegetables and lemon slices around chicken breasts in baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; brush chicken and vegetables with pan drippings. Continue baking until chicken is browned, the juices run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 30 more minutes.

Very good. I made it pretty much as written, except that I used chicken thighs. My husband and I both enjoyed the flavors. I squeezed a little lemon on mine after cooking.

OH WOW! This is an incredible recipe! My husband about fell over it was so good! Ever have those meals where when it's over you could eat it all over again? Well, this is one! The only note that I would make is that I just used what I had on hand i.e. a white onion. Otherwise....no changes and delighted with the results! When a 1 year old, a 2 year old and a three year old will eat a meal....that's a winner in my book! Thanks for the recipe! A must make....and now a family fav! Awesome!!!!!

Must admit that I was skeptical about this recipe because it was so simple. Sometimes simple is best. It turned out to be just outstanding--one of the best recipes I've discovered on this or any other site. I broiled the dish for a few minutes at the end. A handful of olives or some capers thrown in at the end would be good. It's great with greek salad and red wine.
