Oven-Roasted Chicken

Greek – Kotopoulo Psito

In Greece, every household has a “tapsi” (a round metal roasting pan) that can also be used for a variety of other Greek dishes such as Pastichio, Moussaka, or stuffed vegetables.

Preparation:

Wash the chicken thoroughly and rub it inside and out with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Rub the whole chicken with mustard. Peel and wash the potatoes. Place them in a roasting pan, season with salt, pepper and thyme and pour in the lemon juice, oil and a little water. Roast the chicken and potatoes in a moderate oven (350F degrees) for 1 1/2 hours, turning the chicken over so that it browns on both sides. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Servings – 4 to 6
