This is a common meal in Greece and smells delicious while it is cooking.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Juice of two lemons
4 or 5 potatoes, peeled and sliced french-fry style
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 to 1 cup water
One head garlic, the cloves peeled but whole
Oregano, salt and pepper to taste
Place chicken in a shallow baking tray. Arrange potatoes around chicken pieces.
Scatter whole peeled cloves of garlic around chicken and potatoes.
Mix together lemon juice and olive oil, and pour evenly over chicken and
potatoes. Add water until potatoes are just about covered. Add salt, pepper to
taste. Cover chicken and potatoes with generous amounts of oregano. Bake at 350
degrees F, until tops of chicken are reddish brown.
Turn chicken, stir potatoes, and sprinkle on more oregano. If potatoes aren't at
least half-covered with liquid, add water. Return to oven for about 15-20
minutes. Chicken is done when both sides a lightly browned and potatoes are soft
when touched with a fork.
Serve with a crusty bread or with pita bread.
