Herbed Chicken Quarters with Smashed Potatoes

I love making a large amount of roasted meats and veggies on a big sheet pan. It's such a time saver and it looks great presented on the table, as is, on the baking sheet. Gently smashing the potatoes before you put them in the oven allows the lovely meat and veggie juices to flavour them, while keeping them firm and intact. You can use any types of additional veggies you like along with the chicken and potatoes. I used carrots, celery, onions and garlic. This cost about $5 for 4 people. I like to serve it with a nice crusty rustic bread.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 65 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lift the chicken skin and rub 1 teaspoon of oil on both quarters. Season with a bit of garlic salt and black pepper.
  2. For each chicken quarter, tuck in 1 piece of rosemary, 2 slices of lemon, and 1 sliced garlic clove underneath the skin.

  4. Place carrots, onions, celery, and garlic cloves in your baking pan and toss with 1 tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the chicken quarters on top and drizzle everything with juice of 1 lemon.
  5. Loosely cover the pan with a piece of foil so the sides are a bit exposed. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  6. While it's baking, place potatoes in a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Boil for about 20 minutes, until you can easily stick a fork in one.

  8. Thoroughly drain potatoes, the drier the better. Return potatoes to pot and use a masher to gently smash them so they crack on the sides.
  9. Remove foil from baking pan and add the smashed potatoes. Drizzle some of the juices from the bottom of the pan all over the potatoes. Bake another 20 or so minutes.

My mind's eye picture of this comes complete with the aroma in your kitchen as it's cooking.

And we'd probably have fun too. And judging by all your recipes that you so meticulously spell out, at least I'd know what I was eating. I'll try everything as long as I know what it is but what I call mystery food is off limits for me. I don't eat things like hot dogs or bologna for that reason. lol

You like cooking and eating various cultural dishes ... I see this in the mix of recipes you submit.

My mother came from what is now called Indonesia and she made many of the traditional dishes. One of them was nasi goreng ... look it up and give it a try. The key to it is in the sambal; no other hot sauce compares.

MINA!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE NASI GORENG! It's one of my biggest weaknesses! One of my Indonesian friends makes it for me, but I still need to learn to knock one out the park myself. :) I will try to make a good one. And don't worry, I've got sambal galore. Come on by! No hot dogs here ;)

So I'm guessing you're familiar with satay too ....

I made it about a month ago, served over lamb. Now I'm making myself hungry for another feast.

i have made something similar but yours puts it to shame!!

I usually do not do skin but in this case it looks like a good thing and my son's little dog loves cooked chicken skin..

One of my favorite pastimes has always been looking/searching cookbooks but now I just go to your recipe link and never open a book!! Love it...

Forget about your band - When are you going to open a test kitchen and cooking school?
