  • Clean and pat dry chicken pieces. Place in a medium to large rectangular baking dish with all of the ingredients.
  • Combine everything together, massaging the chicken pieces (and the potatoes and mushrooms) with the nice herbs and spices.
  • Arrange the chicken pieces on top of the potatoes and mushrooms scattered in the bottom of the pan like a rack, and then bake your whole creation for 45 minutes to an hour at 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Baste the chicken pieces with the drippings regularly during the cooking process to prevent them from drying out.
  • And just before serving, carefully bathe the cooked chicken pieces with the same lovely drippings. Scatter sliced lemon pieces on top and rain down some 1 - 2 inch cut chives. Enjoy.
