  11. Spoon the remainder of the marinade over chicken and potatoes.
  12. Tip. Sprinkle semolina over potatoes for crispier potatoes.
  13. Place in preheated oven.
  14. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes.
  15. Tossing chicken and potatoes, keeping chicken skin side up every 20 minutes.
  16. Continue baking until chicken is browned and cooked and potatoes tender and cooked through.
  17. Set oven to grill or highest heat setting.
  18. Toss once again in pan juices.
  19. Place pan under grill and grill until crispy about 5 minutes.
  20. Remove to a serving platter.
  21. Place roasting pan on the stove over medium heat.
  22. Add a splash of broth and stir up browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  23. Strain; spoon juices over chicken and potatoes.
  24. Top with chopped oregano.
  25. Optional sprinkle crumbled feta over chicken and potatoes the last 15 minutes of baking. I forgot and sprinkled before serving
  26. Note: don't be tempted to thicken the juice with corn starch slurry leave juices as it is amazing.
