Notes about this recipe

    I have made this many times. it's very little work, and tasty results. However I find the timings a bit hit or miss and it varies a lot depending on what kind of pan you use - too shallow and you will get no sauce/possible burn, too deep and it will be swimming in sauce and the potatoes a bit on the boiled side. I haven't really perfected it yet, but I keep coming back to this recipe because it always tastes good, and there's something very comforting about it.

    This was a perfectly fine roast chicken dish with lemon and oregano, but it didn't quite reach the heights promised in the recipe notes. I used chicken pieces and a combination of potatoes and turnips since that is what I had on hand. if using pieces, definitely cut the potatoes much smaller so they are finished by the time the chicken is ready.

    it was fine... bit oily, no gravy therefore no marinade flavour. probably won't use this recipe again...

    The most fantastic roast chicken I have ever had. A firm family favourite!!
