Homemade Greek Roast Chicken

My kids love Greek food.  One of their favorites is a dish in Cyma called Kotopoulos Lemonato, a kind of greek chicken adobo.

I experimented on the flavors and came out with this dish.  I like that it’s simple and gluten free at the same time.



1 kg whole chicken

8 small potatoes, boiled

1 whole lemon, juiced

1 T oregano

1/2 tsp pepper

8 cloves of garlic, chopped

1/2 cup olive oil

1 T rock salt

Marinate chicken in lemon, oregano, pepper, garlic and olive oil and salt for around 3 to 4 hours in a round pyrex dish. Place potatoes around the chicken.  Put the pyrex dish in the turbo broiler.  Roast in turbo broiler or oven  for around 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350 F.

Brush the chicken skin with the marinade after 30 minutes. Brush again 15 minutes after.
