Taken from "The Foods of The Greek Islands" written by Aglaia Kremezi. This is most always served with lamb or roasted chicken. Use small potatoes for this if you can, quarter or half them and leave the peel on, they absorb more flavor when they are cut and cooked in the juices. This lemon potato dish has extreme flavor, and the recipe can be doubled, try this dish with your next roasted chicken dinner, you will have rave reviews!
