Greek Lemon Potatoes are a common side dish to many Greek dishes.
These slowly roasted potatoes are lightly crispy on the outside, and tender and soft on the inside, with a delicious lemon flavor.
Greek lemon potatoes are thick, moist potato wedges that are soft on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.
The lemon flavor makes the potatoes taste OUTRAGEOUS!
Honestly, I make these for dinner parties all of the time because my guests go crazy over them.

How to make Greek lemon potatoes
This is an authentic Greek Lemon Potatoes Recipe. The roasted potatoes are super easy to make, they just take a bit of patience.
- First mix olive oil, chicken broth, and fresh squeezed lemon juice together.
- Next, peel Russet potatoes and cut into large quarters.
- Pour mixture, along with additional spices listed below in the recipe card, over the potatoes.
- Cook potatoes in the oven covered with foil for an hour and half.
- Remove foil. Roast uncovered about 15-30 more minutes at 400 until potatoes are crispy and liquid is almost gone.
Be patient. The wait is worth it.
What are the best potatoes to use?
In this recipe, you will want to use russet potatoes because of their ability to absorb liquid so well.
The russet potatoes will absorb the wonderful lemon flavors creating a rich, tasty side dish.
How long can you keep leftover potatoes in the refrigerator?
You can store leftover potatoes in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
Ways to use leftovers
- Dice them up and turn them into hash browns for breakfast the next day. Cook them a few minutes in a little oil until the outsides are crispy. They will be great!
- Drizzle a little olive oil on a baking sheet and reheat them at 400 for about 10 minutes. They will crisp back up.
- Cut them into bite sizes and use them in a potato salad.
- Dice them up and add them to a breakfast quiche or breakfast burrito.
I use Pomora Olive Oil for this recipe. Pomora Olive Oil is a high quality olive oil that seasons the potatoes beautifully.
