What are the ingredients I need?

Ingredients list for Greek Lemon Potatoes

Potatoes – I used red potatoes. But most potatoes will work for this recipe. Even sweet potatoes, although they wouldn’t be as crispy. But they would be sweeter.

Chicken stock – make sure you use a good quality stock. Vegetable stock will also work. You could use water instead but stock will give the flavor more depth.

Olive oil – use a good quality olive oil.

Lemon juice – make sure this is freshly squeezed.

Garlic – you don’t have to mince your garlic. You can just roughly chop it. It will cook down as it bakes.

Oregano – use dried oregano. The flavor is stronger and is a characteristic ingredient in Greek cooking – It’s a spice we use a lot.

Salt & Pepper – I used fine salt and freshly ground pepper.

Let’s go through each step.
