Mediterranean Chicken and Potatoes combines a wonderful arrangement of simple ingredients such as Chicken, tomatoes, Potatoes, Lemons, Garlic, Oregano, and Rosemary. You will find this recipe is fairly easy and low maintenance while baking. It's a perfect casserole for any occasion.
Preheat oven to 350° F degrees
Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 of lemon juice mixture in another container for basting the chicken.
Place sliced potatoes, red onion, and diced tomatoes in the baking dish, and pour 3/4 of the lemon juice mixture over vegetables, and toss to coat. Place chicken breasts on top of vegetables. Arrange lemon slices on top of the chicken, secure with toothpicks if desired.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; brush chicken and vegetables with reserved lemon juice mixture. Continue baking until chicken is browned, the juices run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads at least 160 degrees F, about 10-15 more minutes.
