We enjoyed this dish. The potatoes are wonderful! I never thought to make them that way but they are fantastic. I think the next time I make this I will either pan roast the garlic ahead of time or bake it ahead of time. It was not as soft as I think it should have been when the chicken was done. I served this with roasted asparagus. We will definitely make this again!!
