Roasted Lemon, Thyme, Rosemary Chicken with Potatoes
Love chicken. To me chicken is like a painter canvas, the opportunities are endless on how to prepare it. Last nights dinner had all the perfect combinations: easy to prepare and cooking the potatoes with it. Any herbs will do, I always have in hand fresh rosemary and thyme. You may want to try oregano, marjoram…. For the potatoes add as may as you wish making sure that there is plenty of water during cooking so they will not dry out too much.
