Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 425. In a large roasting pan, toss the potatoes and garlic with 1 ½ tablespoons of the oil and ½ teaspoon salt.
  2. Put the pan in the upper third of the oven and cook, stirring once, for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile coat the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the oil; arrange the pieces, skin-side up, in a smaller roasting pan.
  4. Sprinkle the chicken with lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  5. Top each piece of chicken with a piece of the butter.
  6. Stir the potatoes. Put the chicken in the oven with the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Add the asparagus, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper to the potatoes.
  8. Stir and continue to cook until the chicken, potatoes and asparagus are done, 10-15 minutes longer.
  9. Remove both pans from the oven. Toss the potatoes and asparagus with the lemon zest. Serve with the chicken.
