  1. I marinated four chicken hindquarters overnight in the mixture, using fresh Greek oregano from our garden. Forgot to add the lemon wedges but I made sure to serve the chicken with plenty of lemon on the side. Three types of potatoes added more color: red, gold and blue. Served with Recipe #144984. A very simple and elegant dish but one that a beginner cook would have no problem preparing. Reviewed for ZWT 6.
  2. I subbed a large skinless chicken breast half for the thighs (personal preference) and followed the instructions. Needed the hour to cook the chicken. It was tender and tasty! Served with Recipe #359156 for a side dish. Great combination. Thanks for posting Michele. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.
  3. Subbed skinless chicken breasts as that's what I had and broccoli for the last 10 minutes, so easy and great flavors with the hint of lemon. Other than that followed the directions and loved the blend of flavors
  4. I scaled this up for 3 serves using 6 thigh cutlets (skin on and bone in) and followed this recipe for 3 serves but after an hour of cooking at 175C fan forced the chicken was beautifully cooked but the potatoes were still hard so I took the potatoes out and put them in a separate dish and microwaved them for a few minutes and then gave them a spray with oil and put them under the grill/broiler to brown and crisp up a little. The chicken was moist and tasted beautiful and the addition of the roasted lemon to squeeze onto the chicken just really made the dish. Thank you MarraMamba, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
  5. This made a nice dinner for 2. I did add several garlic cloves to the mix and used quartered red skinned potatoes. It was served with recipe #423118 for a delicious dinner in Greece. Made for *ZWT6*

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
