Greek Lemon Potatoes with Garlic Olive Oil Recipe

Greek Lemon Potatoes with Garlic Olive Oil Recipe


  • 1/2 cup Sonoma Farm Garlic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, divided.
  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces.
  • Kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 3 lemons, divided.
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano



  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). In a 12-inch stainless steel straight-sided sauté pan or skillet, or cast-iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil medium-high heat until shimmering. Add potatoes to skillet, with one cut side down, in a single layer and evenly spaced, and season with salt. Cook, without moving, until potatoes begin to brown around edges, 4 to 5 minutes. Continue to cook, rotating and swirling pan gently to promote even browning and prevent sticking, until potatoes are browned on bottom side, 2 to 3 minutes longer, adjusting heat as needed if some of the piece’s brown too quickly.

  2. Using a thin metal spatula, flip potatoes onto second flat side. Continue to cook until browned on second side, 4 to 5 minutes. Add remaining olive oil, chicken stock (or water), 3 tablespoons (45ml) lemon juice, and oregano. Bring to a boil, swirling pan occasionally, and season with salt to taste.
  3. Transfer skillet to oven and roast until potatoes are completely tender, offering little to no resistance when poked with a paring knife, and most of the stock has evaporated, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, add remaining 1 tablespoon (15ml) lemon juice, and stir to combine. Season with salt to taste, then serve.
