I used a large roasting chicken and baked it at 350. An hour or so before it was done I added PEELED yukon gold potatoes (cut as directed, they soak up the juice better peeled I found)and large carrots (cut into 4 big pieces). I also cut the olive oil in 1/2 to save some calories. Was terrific and SO easy. One pan cleanup too!
I used small whole red potatoes instead of cutting up larger ones. Baked at 350 and added a little parsley for color. Absolutely delicious.
I was recommended this and it was delicious.
