I didn't follow a recipe for these, I just used my favorite ingredients for roast chicken and roast potatoes. It's a very easy recipe because you put it all together in the oven to cook and all you have to do is wait until it's done.Easy Roast Chicken with Accordion Potatoesserves 2-4- two skin-on chicken leg quarters (thigh and leg attached together)- four to five small/medium sized baking potatoes (like Idaho or Russet)- one lemon- several sprigs fresh rosemary- three TB butter- olive oil- salt and pepper--To prepare the chicken, season liberally with salt and pepper and place in a foil lined baking dish.In between the skin and flesh of the chicken, stick a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon.To cut the potatoes into accordions, place each potato in between two chopsticks on the cutting board - so that when you slice down you don't go all the way through the potato. (It's harder than you'd think to do without the chopsticks!) Cut the slices about 1/4 inch thick each.Roughly chop up the remaining sprigs of rosemary and place in a microwavable bowl with the butter. Melt the butter with the rosemary in the microwave. Spoon the rosemary-butter into each of the slices of the potatoes. Place the potatoes alongside the chicken in the pan.Slice up the rest of the lemon and place the slices in between the potatoes and chicken.Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 mins. or until the chicken and potatoes are done.Enjoy!
