Categories: chicken


  • 1 4 lb chicken, cut into pieces
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Place in a roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Rub to coat.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, rosemary, and the remaining oil, salt, and pepper. Scatter the potatoes around the chicken. (If the potatoes don’t fit in a single layer, place some under the chicken.) Roast until the chicken is cooked through and a thigh registers 180° F on a meat thermometer, about 45 minutes.
