  • 12
    chicken pieces (drumsticks and thighs)
  • 1
    lemon, finely grated rind and juice
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 30
    chopped fresh thyme
  • 900
    baby potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 1
    lemon, thinly sliced (with rind)
  • 12
    cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 150
    olive oil


Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and lightly brush an ovenproof dish with oil. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper, place in the dish and sprinkle with the lemon rind, juice and thyme. Gently beat each baby potato with a rolling pin to crack it slightly and add to the chicken pieces. Intersperse the chicken pieces and potatoes with lemon slices and garlic and drizzle with the olive oil. Bake for about 45 minutes until cooked and golden brown. Stir occasionally to prevent the bottom pieces from burning. Serve with bread and a salad.
