Lemon Roasted Potatoes

What better to accompany lemon roasted chicken than some lemon roasted potatoes? You can even cook them in the same dish at the same time. You can also make these potatoes when you are not roasting chicken. They are pretty simple to make and really tasty.

Ingredients:
potatoes (cut into bite sized pieces)
olive oil
lemon (juice and zest)
oregano
salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Toss the potatoes in the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper.
2. Bake the potatoes in a preheated 350F oven until tender, about an hour.

Fantastic photograph to go along with a tasty sounding recipe. These I must try.

That is really a mouth-watering photo! I will have to try these, but may have to go really light on the lemon since my hubby tends to not like strong citrus flavors.

Looks great! Lemon is such a wonderful addition to so many dishes.

fyi: I tagged you in a meme.

I am almost embarassed to admit how often we eat potatoes just like this, Kevin. They are so good! I usually add a little chicken broth to mine, too.

These are eaten over & over because it's simply a winning formula for spuds.

You're right it goes well with chicken. I usually make similar potatoes to go with greek chicken and greek salad. So delicious.

I think the lemon will cut down the "filling" starchy feel in those potatoes. Love that!

RecipeGirl said...

How did you make such a simple recipe look so delicious??

The potatoes look as beautiful as the chicken! I roast mine together with thick slices of onion and whole heads of garlic. The garlic roasts and turns into a wonderful, squishy spread for the chicken and potatoes. Lol! It's two in the morning and I could go for some chicken!

Is it just me or are your pictures getting better and better?

I know! How about some Meyer lemon roasted potatoes?

I love lemon roasted vegetables, you can do it with almost any veggie you like and it comes out delish. I have a recipe for lemon roasted asparagus and broccilini on my blog. Its so simple and easy. You can also take out some of the fat by using Pam instead of olive oil. I can't wait to try these too.
