Greek Lemon Potatoes
Greek Lemon Potatoes have a tangy flavor with a hint of garlic. They are an easy roasted potatoes recipe that goes well with so many dinners. If you love lemon then you will LOVE these lemon potatoes!
Why we love these Greek lemon potatoes the best
- They are LEMONY! Cause who wants to eat lemon potatoes with only a hint of lemon flavor?
- They are an easy to make side dish that pairs perfectly with my two favorite staple recipes: Perfect Baked Chicken Breasts and Juicy Baked Pork Chops.
- Soft inside and lightly crispy on the outside with a few delicious charred bits just for good measure.
- One pan = super easy cleanup.
How to make lemon potatoes
- Chop the potatoes into wedges then put them in a baking dish with olive oil, lemon juice, and a few spices.
- Now bake them for about half an hour.
- Gently mix the potatoes around then put them back into the oven for another 30 minutes.
Here's where you have two options:
- If you've chosen a larger, broil-safe baking dish, you can simply drizzle the potatoes with a little extra olive oil and broil them for a few minutes to give them some color.
- If your baking dish is smaller (like the one in the picture) or is not broil-safe, transfer the potatoes (and any juice left in the pan) to a baking sheet before broiling them for a few minutes.
What to serve with this Greek potatoes recipe
Most of the time I serve these potatoes with either my Perfect Baked Chicken Breasts or my Juicy Baked Pork Chops recipes. I simply adjust the oven temperature at the end of cooking then put the chicken or pork into the oven with the potatoes. While everything is in the oven, I put together a simple salad (with one of my favorite salad dressing recipes) then dinner is ready.
