Sure!  it's actually taken from a McCormick recipe:


Rosemary chicken & potatoes

  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs ( I use leg quarters)
  • 1 1/2 lbs. red potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable or olive oil
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp. crushed rosemary leaves
  • 1 tsp. dry minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Mix oil, spices and salt in a large bowl. Add chicken and potatoes; toss to coat well. Arrange chicken and potatoes in single layer on foil-lined cookie pan sprayed with cooking spray. Roast in a preheated 425°F oven 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender, turning potatoes occasionally.

This is a task to work on today.  Since we are moving on 12/21 I am trying to cook all week so I don't have to bring a lot with me.
