Recipes for Success: Greek Lemon-Oregano Baked Chicken and Potatoes

by Nick Mitsis

Much like a great business, a great dish relies on quality, not complexity. When I’m not grilling through press lists and organizing PR campaigns for one of Mach Media’s clients, I settle into some weekly me time with my favorite Greek recipe: my grandmother’s Greek lemon – oregano chicken and potatoes. This simple and hearty Greek dish was passed down to my mom, and then passed down to me. It reminds me of my warm Greek roots every time, and has become a weekly staple in my house.
