Greek Lemon Potatoes

Traditionally named Lemoni Patatas, are oven-roasted lemon garlic and oregano flavored potatoes are to die for! They are easy to make and are always the first to be eaten, whenever I take them to a party. The lemon juice marinade gives such intense flavor, and the cooking method really caramelizes the outside of the potatoes. As you’ll see, I’m using disposable pans because they are easier to transport and drop off to my friends. These are my Greek Lemon Potatoes-Lemoni Patatas.

The ingredients are few. All this recipe requires are, Yukon gold potatoes, garlic. fresh lemon juice, chicken broth, olive oil, and Kosher salt and black pepper.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
13 x 9 casserole dish (square or oval)
three  9 x 9 or 8 x 8 disposable pans for transport

3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes peeled, cut into wedges
1 cup of fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 heaping tablespoon dried Greek oregano (substitute dried oregano)
1 1/2 tablespoons Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
1 quart of chicken stock, unsalted

Peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Next, cut the halves into quarters to make large wedges. If the potatoes are fairly small, leave them in half. Let them stand in water while preparing the marinate.

In a large bowl or zip lock bag, combine all the other ingredients. Transfer the potatoes to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, ( or zip lock bag) and let them marinate for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400-degrees F.
Evenly transfer the potatoes and marinade into the 3 disposable pans. Roast for 1 hour 10 minutes turning occasionally.

Note:  There should be plenty of marinade (sauce) leftover in the casserole dish/ disposable pans after roasting.

Note:  As a personal preference if you like the outsides of the potatoes to become crunchy and slightly blistered. Once the cooking time is complete, turn the oven to the broiler setting. Leave the oven door slightly ajar and broil for 5 minutes.
