GREEK STYLE LEMON CHIPS RECIPE

(recipe credit and demo RecipeTinEats)

  • 1.2 kg / 2.5lb potatoes 
  • 375 ml chicken stock/broth 
  • 125 ml olive oil
  • 85 ml lemon juice5 garlic cloves , finely grated 
  • 3)1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp salt 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F (180°Cfan).
  • Cut potatoes: Peel potatoes and cut large ones into thick wedges – about 3cm / 1.2" thick – and medium ones into 3 (see photo in post).
  • Coat potatoes: Place potatoes in a roasting pan with all the other ingredients. Toss well.
  • Roast 45 minutes: Roast for 20 minutes. Turn potatoes, roast for a further 25 to 30 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed by potatoes/evaporated and you're left with mainly oil in the pan.
  • To crisp the potatoes (optional): Transfer potatoes to a separate tray. (Note 3) Tilt the original roasting pan and scoop off as much of the oil as you can (some juices is ok), then drizzle over the potatoes.
  • Roast 35 minutes: Transfer potatoes to oven and roast for 35 – 40 minutes, turning once or twice, until potatoes are golden and a bit crispy on the edges.
  • Heat pan juices: Return pan #1 with the garlic juices to the oven for the last 5 – 10 minutes or so to reduce down and make the garlic golden. (Optional, Note 4)
  • Plate up: Transfer potatoes to serving platter. Drizzle over the reduced garlic pan juices (or toss potatoes in the pan). Serve, garnished with lemon wedges and oregano if desired.
