These were delicious! I boiled the potatoes in chicken stock instead of water to give them some flavor from the outset, and I added the juice from the lemons I zested, too. Make sure you taste one and adjust for seasonings before you serve them - I found that they needed a bit more salt than called for to really bring out the flavors.

Yummy! I used baby red potatoes, and I thought the lemon zest added a delightly zing, and the garlic was a must for us. What a great way to dress up potatoes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Miraklegirl.
