"This is one of the best chicken dishes I have ever had. The garlic, lemon and chicken drippings make the most flavorful soft delicious potatoes. Super easy to prepare - the oven does all the work."

Servings Per Recipe: 2
"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."
"This was really good. I mixed the minced garlic, lemon juice and the zest of one small lemon into the chicken broth. It was perfect. I also placed the chicken skin side up and did not flip them so that they would get nice and light golden brown and crispy. This is a great dish to throw in the oven on a busy work night. While it cooks I can do to other things around the house. Will make again."
"This was really good ! Had bone-in thighs which got well done in 90 minutes. Used crushed garlic and sea salt, and just 1 russet for the 2 of us. There was plenty of liquid for the full baking time, and saved some for leftovers another night. Thanks for posting, Marie !"
"Delicious, delicious, delicious and so quick and easy to make. What a spectacular dish. We really enjoyed this flavorful chicken and potato dish. My dh was in heaven. I did add a little extra lemon juice and used sea salt, (personal preference only) Thanks so much for sharing your recipe Marie. We will be enjoying this often."
"I made this with red potatoes with the skin on, and we loved it. We'll be making this several times a year from now on. Delicious!"
"I'm going to withhold rating any stars until I try this again. For some reason the broth didn't absorb or evaporate, and when I flipped the chicken, all of the garlic came off in the broth. Maybe next time I'll use a larger pan (mine was prob a little smaller than recommended), and cut the broth back to 1/2 c, adding more as it disappears."
"After running out of ideas for baked chicken, I turn to food.com and boy am I glad I did! This recipe was fairly simple but turned out fabulous. The chicken was moist and tasty - the potatoes were to die for! I might even use this recipe just to make the potatoes. Thanks Marie for sharing this great recipe. I will be making this again and again. Cheers :)"
"My new favorite chicken recipe! So easy and delicious! After reading other reviews, I used a combo of baby red potatoes (skin on/cut in half) and sweet potatoes (peeled/cubed). I doubled the recipe, served with fresh sourdough bread for dipping in broth. YUMMY! We will be fighting over the leftovers today. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe."
"What a wonderful. easy recipe! It was soooo good. I added an onion to cook along with the potatoes. I loved the broth, so tasty poured over the chicken & potatoes. Will make again & again. Thanks!"
"My family loved this! It was so easy to make. Thank you!"
"I made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS. I get so tired of chicken, but this really tasted different. I cooked 12 thighs for 6 people, including 2 little ones. It is all gone now, with no leftovers. It was easy to make, and something about the lemon made it so good."
"Great, easy meal from things I usually have on hand. Only thing I did differently was to double the recipe for leftovers and add a small amount of oregano. These potatoes are awesome."
"This was simply wonderful! Wouldn't change a thing. Made with low sodium chicken broth and lite salt. Next time, maybe an extra potato or 2 - and there will be a next time!"
"Sounds good but way toooo much sodium if you need to watch it."
"DH and myself have been getting VERY tired of chicken (it's cheap, and only one of us is employed), so I've been looking for new ways to cook it. So far, this is hands down the BEST chicken recipe I've found. It' has loads of flavor, is incredibly easy, and the juice/sauce left over is amazing on Frenchbread. The only changes I made were to use more garlic (we can't get enough garlic over here), and I used Red Potatoes instead of Russets. I'm excited to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Also, cooking time was spot-on."
"Awesome. I used sweet potatoes because I had to use some. My husband is usually not enthusiastic when I make thighs but he loved this! Easy and tasty"
"Very easy to prepare and the house smelled wonderful. I thought that the broth would evaporate as it cooked but this did not happen so it was not necessary to add any more liquid. I may add some oregano and parmesan next time. Thx for sharing."
