Lemony One-Pot Chicken and Roasted Potatoes
  • Appx. 1 kg organic chicken drumsticks (approximately 8-9 drumsticks)
  • 4 largeĀ russet potatoes, washed, scrubbed, and cut into 6-8 wedges
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 whole lemons, washed, and cut into wedges
  • ¼ c extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ c water (+1/4 c extra needed if you prefer your chicken and potatoes to be less caramelized)
  • 3-4 shallots/mini onions, peeledĀ (optional)
  • 1 t dried parsley
  • 1 t oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large (9x13) casserole dish and stir to combine. For lemon, squeeze the juice out first and then add in lemon wedges whole. If adding any additional vegetables, only add now if these vegetables will need a long time to cook through and caramelize (for example beets, turnips, etc.). Otherwise, wait to add to dish until after the first half hour of cooking is over.
  3. Place dish in preheated oven and allow to cook through for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, open up oven and stir/mix all the ingredients. Place back into the oven and allow to cook for another 15 minutes. Repeat until the chicken is cooked to your liking. Total cook time will be anywhere from 1-1.5 hours. If you don't want your chicken and potatoes to get as caramelized, make sure to add a bit of extra water to the bottom of your pan.
