Recipe of the Week: Mediterranean Chicken & Potatoes

The following recipe for Mediterranean Chicken & Potatoes is from reader Linda T. She notes:  “This has a nice lemony flavor. You’ll need an oven, a baking sheet with deep lip, and a garlic press.”

  • 6 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
  • ⅓ cup plus 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 3½- to 4-lb. whole chicken, cut into 6 to 8 pieces

  • 1 large red onion, cut into ½-in. wedges
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 pound Broccoli crowns, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon )or less) of freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F.
  2. Squeeze juice from 2 lemons to equal ⅓ cup; add to a large bowl.
  3. Cut remaining lemon into wedges and add to bowl along with garlic, oregano, and ⅓ cup oil.
  4. Add chicken, spooning marinade over chicken; let sit for about 15 minutes.
