Oven Roasted Chicken and Potatoes--Greek Style

Oven Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
When my sister and I were young we were taught how to make this by our father.  You see, he was responsible for dinner on Mondays because that was his day off and mom would be working.  This was the only meal he knew how to make so we had it every Monday.  Once my sister and I were old enough, he handed over the Monday night cooking to us.  Of course there were no exact measurements for this recipe back then and sorry folks, there still isn't, but somehow it comes out yummy every time.  As always, have fun with it and make it your own. :D


Baba's Oven Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

2 whole chickens (we like to have leftovers for sandwiches)
6 potatoes

Salt
Pepper
Oregano
Garlic Salt
Chicken spice (I added this ingredient years later and use Club House Montreal Chicken Spice)

4 Lemons
Olive oil


Preheat oven to broil.  Place cut up chicken into a large pan.  Drizzle with a lot of olive oil and lemon juice.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic salt, and chicken spice.  Broil one side until golden brown and then turn the chicken over and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic salt, and chicken spice.  Once this side is golden brown, turn the chicken again and set the oven to bake at 350 degrees. (While the chicken is on broil, peel and cut up the potatoes then place them in a bowl and coat them in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic salt, and chicken spice.)  Place the potatoes around the chicken and add 1/2 cup of water to the pan, cover with foil or lid of pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.  Remove foil/lid and bake until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork and the chicken is done.
