Ingredients

For the Chicken

  • 2.5 - 3 lbs. chicken thighs
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. red potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 lemon, cut into slices

For the Marinade

  • 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. thyme
  • Fresh chopped Italian parsley, for garnish
  • Crumbled feta cheese, for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade mixture and mix with tongs until all of the chicken is coated.
  3. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the 2 Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
    Transfer the chicken to a plate. Repeat until all of the chicken has been browned. Set aside on a plate.
