Greek Chicken and Potato Traybake

The Greek dish known as kotopoulo skorthato typically is called “Greek garlic-lemon chicken” in English, but the ensemble also includes potatoes, making it a delicious complete meal. For our take on the classic, we use our trusty traybake technique—we roast the ingredients on a rimmed baking sheet in a hot oven to ensure the quickest cooking possible and to develop nice caramelization. At the end, we also toss in black olives, dill and capers to ratchet up the flavors. If using chicken breasts, try to purchase pieces that are close in size so they cook at the same rate.




Don't use extra-large bone-in chicken breasts if you can help it; 12-ounce pieces work best. If unavoidable, keep in mind that bone-in breasts weighing about 1 pound each require 40 to 50 minutes of roasting.

Company worthy dish!
I made this for company and everyone raved and asked for the recipe. I made as written with chicken thighs. The only thing I modified was the amount of seasoning. I made 1.5 times the recipe but doubled the seasoning mix, which I would do again.

This is absolutely delicious and super easy. Five out of five stars. I will make this forever.
