About this recipe: My mother taught me this dish. It's a very traditional Lebanese meal, which consists of roasted chicken with potatoes. It's simple, wholesome and will be welcomed any day of the week.
I make this recipe all the time, use only juice of 1/2 lemon, try adding about 1 tspn each of cumin and "7" spice, or allspice. I turn the broiler on for the last 20-15 minutes until all the lemon juice evaporates. - 26 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very simple and pure dish. Excellent! This is not another one of those boring recipes that calls for tons of cheese and canned creamy soups for flavor. I will make this weekly. Thanks! - 03 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this dish. Although I cut my potatoes into thick (about 3/4" thick) and then fry them until a little dark golden brown. While I am frying the potatoes, I boil the chicken in water. After the potatoes are all fried. I place them on the bottom of the baking dish, place the chicken on top. I add the lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and some broth from the chicken to the dish. Along with the salt & pepper, I do add the 7 spice to it and then broil for about 5 minutes. It's so yummy!! - 26 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
