3garlic cloves, minced
Finely grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
6 medium-size red potatoes, halved or quartered
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix the garlic, lemon juice and peel, oil, and spices.
Place chicken, breast side up, in a lightly oiled large roasting pan. Place the potatoes around the chicken. Drizzle the entire garlic mixture over the chicken and onto the potatoes.
Bake at 425 degrees 20 to 25 minutes per pound of the chicken or until the chicken is cooked through. A meat thermometer should read 180 degrees when inserted in the thigh. Stir potatoes once or twice to brown evenly.
