Typical Greek Lemon Chicken

chicken4A few days ago I got the privilege of being cooked for. My boyfriend made me some delicious Greek chicken! I must say I really enjoyed this dish a lot. It is super simple and still so tasty! We used an amazing Greek olive oil, which makes all the difference in the world… It was a whole chicken with potatoes.

Ingredients:
– Whole chicken
– Potatoes
– Dried oregano
– Dried thyme
– 3 Lemons
– Olive oil (greek is nice and flavourful if you can find it)
– Salt
– Pepper
– Cherry tomatoes

Method:
– Set your oven to 200 degrees Celcius. Place the chicken in a oven proof dish. Peel the potatoes and then cut them up so that they will fit around the chicken.

– Both the chicken and the potatoes should be nice and crisp. This can be served with a salad or some yummy veggies.
