Ingredients

  • 5 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 3 cups red potatoes, diced into 1-inch cubes
  • cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • cup dry wine white
  • Chopped fresh oregano and parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Make the marinade: in a large bowl combine the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, rosemary, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  • Add the diced red potatoes and chicken thighs, and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 mins to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Place the potatoes and chicken thighs on a baking sheet (thighs should be placed skin-side up), pour the white wine over them, and bake for 40 mins, flipping the potatoes mid-baking. If the wine evaporates completely, add a little more. Serve with chopped fresh oregano and parsley on top.
