    Great recipe! I used whole chicken legs instead of the whole chicken, baked the potatoes alone for 30 minutes, then placed the chicken legs on top and baked the whole dish for 60 more minutes. The Greek oregano makes the difference. I will definitely make it again and again.  -  21 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Lovely tasty recipe for roast chicken. Great that the potatoes cook at the same time. Will definitely make it again. I used fresh thyme instead of oregano.  -  25 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
