    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you love Greek food as much as we do then you will love this dish --- you may omit the capers and use your choice of chicken pieces instead of all legs --- omit the chicken and reduce the chicken broth, and you have an outstanding roasted potato dish --- this also works very well using sweet potatoes in place of russets.

      I tried this recipe on the recommendation from Midwestguy, and all I can say is that it's absolutely wonderful. I followed the suggestion of marinating the chicken in the olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 cup white wine, oregano, rosemary and salt and pepper. I just used the marinade over the chicken when it was time to put it in the oven. Fantastic! After I took it out of the oven I put a generous handful of feta cheese over it. YUM! Thank you for such a great recipe!

      This was really good! I do wish the lemon flavor had been a little stronger but other than that it was great. Next time I may try marinating the chicken ahead of time as another reviewer suggested.

      Opa !!!! Opa !!! This is great!!! I love this savory dish and it's easy to make!!! The chicken was a perfect 180 degrees F in this cooking time and the potatoes were soft and cooked through. The dressing and flavors were wonderful, I love the oregano and capers, and I put just a bit of dried rosemary sprigs for the rosemary to be subtle in flavor and it was perfect!! Love the lemony juices that cook down into a wonderful flavoring for the potatoes. Will definitely make this one again and again, thanks so much!!!
