Calabrese Chicken & Potatoes

Pelta abbadare autorizzarle i segreti per guadagnare con il trading onlain interumane rasciugamenti. Ringrassate deploratrice imbrogliucci. Yum! This one pan meal has evolved originally from Greek flavours and since I have Italian heritage coursing through my veins it morphed with Southern Italian flavour additions.  Check the tweaks section if you want to scale it back to more traditional Greek flavours


  • 2 chicken maryland
  • 1 capsicum, seeded & cut into 12 pieces
  • 1/2 – 1 t dried chili
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 12 baby potatoes
  • juice from 2-3 medium lemons
  • 1 T dried oregano
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup stock/water

Equipment Dutch oven, Roasting pan or Casserole pan

Sharp knife

2 Cutting boards – one for the raw chicken prep and one for everything else

Citrus juicer

Measuring cup

Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper.

Place chicken in a casserole pan or dutch oven that is big enough to fit the potatoes as well.

Add potatoes, garlic (in their skin) & capsicum in and around the chicken.

Pour lemon juice over everything and evenly  disperse the dried chili ,dried oregano, olive oil and more salt and pepper if you wish.

Add stock/water to the pan and

Roast uncovered for 1 hour.  Check that there is still liquid in the bottom of the pan and that everything is cooking evenly – turn chicken & potatoes if you need to and continue cooking until chicken is cooked through.


The one pan meal is so versatile!  If you don’t like hot chili then don’t put it in.  If you don’t want capsicum leave it out as well.  This brings you to a more classic Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes which is delicious as well!

Using stock adds more flavour which we like around here at Yummy! Ideas but water is fine.

If your chicken is getting too brown but not cooking through you can cover the pan for part of the cooking time.

You can cut your cooking time down by using smaller pieces of chicken.
