    The fresh lemon juice really shines in this recipe. Followed the instructions to the letter, and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, koko, for a new potato dish.  -  13 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made these two nights in a row, grilling them both times; the first with oregano and I overcooked and over browned them. Watch carefully, as the broth evaporates quickly. Also, I found I wasn't particularly fond of either the lemon or the oregano. Tonight I tried them again, this time with fresh dill and I kept a closer eye. Much better, although I still found them too tangy from the lemon juice. If I was to try them a third time I'd either cut way back on the lemon or eliminate it completely.  -  05 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love lemon potatoes from my neighborhood Greek restaurant and this recipe is just about as close as you can get to theirs! I definitely will be making this again!!! (The only thing I did different was use vegetable stock instead of chicken because I'm a vegetarian. Otherwise, I made the recipe exactly as it says.)  -  29 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
