Roasted Greek-Style Chicken with Lemon, Garlic & Oregano

Does this ever happen to you?

You believe you know what you're going to prepare for dinner, then you find something irresistible on one of your favorite blogs ~ and it completely changes your plans?

I admit, it happens to me at least once a week.

Most recently (yesterday morning) on my friend Ann's fabulous blog ~

Greek Roasted Chicken dinner...

I immediately knew what dinner would be.

Driving into town wasn't an inviting option for me this morning so I utilized the same technique
but substituted chicken wings.

The recipe is free form; I salted the wings generously, sprinkled with plenty of fine lemon zest early in the day and allowed them to rest (uncovered) in the refrigerator for several hours ~ and then followed Ann's instructions:

"Lots of garlic, oregano and fresh squeezed lemon juice over the potatoes and the chicken. Roasted at 500°F."

I used a combination of both dried and fresh Greek Oregano ...
and turned the wings and potatoes once after the top side was very nicely browned.

This is one of my favorite ways of preparing chicken, and ... those potatoes!

You must go visit Ann's blog to discover her wonderful recipes and captivating photos.

Thank you Ann, for providing the inspiration for a delicious dinner ~ once again.
