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.
- 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
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.
