Start this version by marinating the chicken thighs in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and oregano for about two hours in the refrigerator. After placing the marinated chicken on top of the partially-cooked potatoes, add thick slices of lemon to the baking dish. Serve each chicken thigh with a lemon slice, which becomes juicy and lightly caramelized during the roasting process.
Filled with seasonal flavor, this dish swaps sweet potatoes in place of red potatoes. Top the uncooked chicken with a simple glaze made by simmering 2/3 cup apple cider with 2 tablespoons honey and 1 tablespoon Dijon. When the mixture comes to a boil, stir in 1 tablespoon of butter before pouring it over the chicken.
