Baked Italian chicken with lemon and garlic. You can make this dish with any of your favorite chicken parts – breasts, drumsticks, et cetera. Note: the garlic and onion can be put through a food processor.

Ingredients:

  • 15 chicken thighs
  • 8 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup vegetable oil, or as needed
  • ½ cup wine vinegar
  • 5 lemons, juiced
  • 10 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 onion, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Arrange the chicken pieces in a 10×15-inch enameled roasting pan. In a large skillet over medium high heat, fry the potatoes in 1/2-inch-deep oil until golden brown, then put them in the pan with the chicken.

Combine the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, parsley, onion, salt and pepper with the 1/2 cup reserved frying oil and pour this mixture over the chicken and potatoes.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours, basting the chicken and potatoes with the sauce mixture. Let rest for 5 minutes and serve hot.
