Easy Dinner: Greek Chicken

I talked in my last entry about how much fun the Greek Festival was, but what do you do when you want some yummy Greek food and you don’t want to wait around for the next festival or drive all the way across town to the good Greek place? In my case, you learn how to make Greek Chicken and potatoes. My friend Rach over at Out of Meal Ideas has a recipe that has become a fan favorite around our friend group. I love this dish so much I made an extra-large batch of it for my whole extended family when I hosted a dinner party for my Dad’s 60th birthday last week. Try this simple and yummy dish the next time you need a quick and good dinner!



  • 6 boneless chicken breasts
  • 6 new potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 really big teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, plus a little extra pinch
  • paprika


1)      Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2)      Place chicken and cut potatoes in 9×13 glass baking dish

3)      Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and garlic powder together.

4)      Pour liquid mix over chicken and potatoes. Move around a bit so that all items are covered with mix.

5)      Sprinkle paprika over the chicken and potatoes

6)      Cover with tin foil and bake for 1 hour

This is great with a Greek salad and some bread. It was a huge hit with my family at my Dad’s birthday. I did ten chicken breasts and a lot of potatoes, so I used two separate dishes and did a pan of chicken and a pan of potatoes. I just doubled up on the wet mix to get it to work. For dessert I made my famous Carmel Apple Pecan Pie, which you can learn how to make here.
