How to cook Authentic Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes
You also can use boneless chicken for cooking this meal and still get the savory flavor as well as the bones ones. Besides, many extracts of lemon are also needed more here. Follow the steps below to serve a big pan of Greek Lemon Chicken Rice with Roast Garlic.
- ¾ kg of chicken thighs, breast or drumsticks
- Two lemons, juiced and grated
- Two tablespoons of oregano
- ½ small cup of olive oil
- 2-4 minced garlic cloves
- One onion, diced
- Salt and pepper
- 400-500 ml of chicken broth
- A cup of long grain rice
1Marinade the chicken by combining olive oil, one juiced and zest lemon, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Put them all in a zip-lock plastic bag and set it aside for 30 minutes or if you want the chicken to taste better, you can keep it for overnight.
2Heat a large oven pan with a ½ teaspoon of olive oil over medium heat. Put the marinade and cook the both sides of the chicken until they turn golden brown or around two until four minutes long. After the chicken cooked, removed them from the pan and set them aside.
3You need to use the pan again, and you can wipe it up first with a towel to clean the black bits. Then put the onions to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes or until tender and nearly golden brown. Also, add the garlic and long grain rice in the pan and cook for a minute or until you can smell fragrant.
4Pour the chicken broth, oregano, and lemon juice into the pan along with the garlic and the chicken on top of it. Cook them all for around 20 minutes and do not forget to take out the garlic after it is done. Then put some lemon slices before you bake it in the oven for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven let them rest for few minutes. Serve with chopped oregano or parsley.
If you never try cooking this meal before, then you should immediately do it today. Feel the combination of chicken with the lemon flavor that is served with rice in it.
