Quick and easy dinner, but nice enough for company.
- 1 (3 1/2 lb) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
- 1 lb small red potato, each cut into quarters
- 1 small red pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 small yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 whole head of garlic, cloves separated and unpeeled
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. In a 17"x11 1/2" roasting pan, toss the chicken pieces, potatoes, peppers, and garlic cloves with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Be sure chicken is skin-side up.
- Roast chicken and vegetables 35 to 40 minutes, until juices run clear when thickest parts of chicken pieces are pierced with a tip of knife, and potatoes are tender. Remove chicken and vegetables to platter; cover and keep warm.
- If you like, skim fat from drippings in pan, then add 1/4 cup hot water, stirring to loosen brown bits. Spoon drippings over chicken and vegetables.
- Squeeze the garlic from the peels and eat it with the chicken, if you like.
This was a very nice chicken dish. The roasted garlic and peppers were a nice touch. The only change I made was to squeeze a half of a lemon over it before popping it in the oven.
A Keeper recipe here, thank you very much. I had to improvise a little on the ingrediants though and just used what I had. Used one whole chicken cut into pieces with white potato pieces, carrots, and fresh green beans. I also was out of dried Rosemary and used Oregano instead, about 4-5 tablespoons, also used garlic powder instead of fresh. Omitted the pepper as I didn't have any, but will definately add again when I make this again. Oh yes also was out of olive oil, but used regular oil. I was a bit worried about the green beans not cooking completely so cooked this for 50 minutes. Removed it from the oven and drizzled some melted butter over top because it was a bit dry. But the flavor was amazing and I will make this again. Thanks!
