For this easy recipe, I used both red-skinned potatoes and purple potatoes. They were roasted at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Then the potatoes were sliced in half, slathered with melted butter and grilled on a stove top grill pan for 10 minutes on the cut side. Transfered the potatoes to a platter and added another slather of butter and seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper, fresh chives and lemon zest. Reviewed for Best of 2011.

Just loved these potatoes!! I scaled back the recipe to serve one(2 medium red skins), and followed Boomette's method, cooked them in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes on high. The only thing I changed was to add some salt and pepper and grilled them directly on the grill. These were so quick and simple, with no mess, yet they tasted wonderful!! Thanks for sharing the recipe Alli. Made for ZWT 7.

wow these potatoes are great. I baked them in the microwave for 5 minutes. Then followed the recipe. They had a wonderful taste with the butter, fresh chives and lemon zest. Thanks Alli :) Made for Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7

I don't have a grill basket, so I put the par boiled potatoes on skewers and grilled. Love this dish! They were perfectly tender, and the chive butter really was all they needed to shine. I can see someone enjoying a dollop of sour cream on the side, but I loved these just as they were. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers

Had been saving this recipe from "Bon Appetit" and finally got a chance to make it last night as a side to Renaissance Festival Turkey Legs. We thought it was really good and easy to make. Used the first fresh chives of the season from my garden. Yum! I'll definitely be making these again.

This was really great !! Hardly grill potatoes on the grill, and the end result made for some nice flavorful potatoes tonight. The lemon flavor was appealing to these potatoes. Made for PRMR tag.
