Easy Dinner: Greek Chicken and Potatoes

Most days I try to have dinner made by the time my husband comes home, but having an almost 2 month old means that I have very little time to do it. I usually make dinners that are easy to make, have simple ingredients, and something that has lots of flavor. This week I had some chicken breasts and some Yukon Gold potatoes. Knowing I had very little time to prepare dinner, I decided to make some easy Greek chicken and potatoes. Here’s how I made it.

Easy Greek Chicken and Potatoes

Ingredients:

For the Chicken:
2 Skinless, boneless chicken breast
1 Lemon (Juice and Zest)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Oregano
Chopped Garlic (use as much or as little garlic to your preference)
Salt and Pepper

For the potatoes:
1 lb of potatoes (whatever you have on hand)
1/2 Lemon (Juice and Zest)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Oregano
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Mix the juice of a lemon and zest with the olive oil, chopped garlic, and oregano in a ziplock bag. Add salt and pepper to taste. I usually do 1 tbsp of salt and 1/2 tbsp of pepper.
  2. Add chicken into the marinade. I cut my chicken into 1 inch chunks because I usually need something done real quick. You can leave the chicken breast whole or use chicken tenders. Marinade chicken in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hrs, longer if you are keeping the chicken breast whole. The longer you let it marinate, the more flavorful the chicken will be.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, wash and cut the potatoes into inch chunks or wedges. Put all of the ingredients into a 9×9 inch baking dish. I used garlic salt here but you can definitely use just regular chopped garlic. I was short on time so I needed to make it easier.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes until soft.
  5. Take the chicken out of the refrigerator 5-10 minutes before cooking. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up and spread the chicken onto the cookie sheet including the marinade.
  6. Place the chicken in the 400 degree oven with the potatoes. Cook for 15 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees. After 15 minutes, take the potatoes out and set the oven to broil.
  7. Broil the chicken for about 5 minutes until brown. Take it out of the oven and enjoy.

You can serve it with some quinoa or couscous if you don’t have potatoes or add the chicken to a some lettuce or mixed greens along with some Feta cheese to make a delicious Greek salad. You can even put the chicken in a pita pocket with some cucumber and cheese for a delicious sandwich. This recipe is very simple and requires very little cooking. Also, makes for great leftovers to use in other dishes. Hope you enjoy!
