My family really enjoyed this especially the potatoes! Yummy. I didn't like the garlic paste on top. It didn't mellow with the baking and a real bite to it. Next time, and there will be one, I will just sprinkle garlic salt on top. I think I will also add more lemon, less broth and maybe a sprinkle of Greek seasonings. This was very tasty!!
WOW! Thank you for a great recipe. My family does foster care and I really need kid-friendly, kid-approved recipes that are also healthy! That's a tall order. This one fit the bill exactly. I cut up 3 large carrots, did the potatoes bite-size, cooked one thigh per kid and served it with a slice of homemade wheat bread and applesauce for dessert! THEY LOVED IT! Thank you!!!
This was a nice and easy dinner to prepare. I didn't have a fresh lemon so I used concentrated and it still turned out wonderful. I also didn't have fresh garlic so I used minced from a jar and it made a paste just fine. The potatoes had a great flavor as well as the chicken. Thank you, we enjoyed this a lot.
