This recipe uses chicken legs, but indeed is suitable for a whole chicken too. It goes well with roasted potatoes.
This was probably the easiest last minute dinner idea I have ever had. I was able to throw it together in under 5 minutes. I used bottled lemon juice instead of squeezing a lemon and everything was fine. The only problem I had was with the cooking time which seemed to be a hair too long so I just took it out early. I also mixed the pan juices into some plain white rice and it was absolutely delicious. Overall, this was fast, easy, and good! - 15 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh Yum!!!! I doubled the sauce (but not the oregano) as per other reviews, did not marinate as others had done, kept the chicken covered the entire time, and baked for a total of 40 minutes. The meat fell off of the bones! It was so tender & tasty over rice! Thanks!
Update! I made this again, this time tripling the sauce and using fresh oregano and lemon thyme. I used one third to marinade some red potatoes and carrots and the rest for the chicken for about an hour. I then threw the veggies in the oven at 400 for about half an hour, then added the chicken for another 40. Served over rice....mmmmm... - 12 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a really good chicken recipe. We used boneless breasts, though, and I didn't reduce the cook time. They came out a bit tough, so definitely reduce the cook time if you are using boneless cuts. It was a very flavorful recipe, though, and even my VERY picky 3-year-old ate an entire breast! That's unheard of! - 17 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
