  • Chicken from Homemade Chicken Broth Recipe see link below
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp finely minced garlic about one large clove
  • 1 tbsp Greek oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Begin by following the recipe for our Homemade Chicken Broth.
  • Once the chicken broth is done, you have a nicely cooked chicken. We like to take an extra step and roast the chicken in the oven for a bit so that the skin becomes golden brown. Preheat your oven to 400° F. Using two large cooking spoons, very carefully place the spoons under the chicken on opposite ends of each other and lift the chicken out of the pot and place into a roasting pan, breast side down. Remove the carrots, celery and onion from the pot and place around the chicken in the roasting pan.
  • Pour 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil over the chicken. Rub 1 teaspoon (about 1 large clove) of finely minced garlic over the chicken. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp Greek oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Finally, pour 3/4 cup of the chicken broth into the bottom of the roasting pan.
  • Roast chicken and vegetables in oven for 30 minutes, basting once after 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place on a serving platter with vegetables. Serve with our Greek Roasted Lemon Potatoes or our Cretan Style Pilafi.
