    CHILI SPICE's Note:

    Simple ingredients, lots of flavors. Great side for any meal. This is a family and friends BBQ favorite (but can be made in the oven for those cold days!). Great served with Crazy Easy Corn (On the Cob) or Corn and Tomato Salad With Cilantro Dressing

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a bowl (if using microwave) or small pot on the stove combine broth, smashed garlic cloves, 1/2 of one lemon, 1/2 Tablespoon Kosher salt. Cover tightly with lid or saran wrap and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the halved potatoes, recover tightly and simmer until potatoes are fork tender (about 5-8 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes). Drain and discard lemon half and garlic.
    3. 3
      In a bowl add the butter then the potatoes, carefully swirl the potatoes around in the bowl until butter is melted and has coated all the potatoes.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle the garlic salt and ground black pepper (to taste). With the last half of the lemon squeeze juice (about 1 tablespoon) over the top of the potatoes and once again carefully "swirl" potatoes around in the bowl to coat.
    5. 5
      On a preheated greased grill or oven (on greased baking sheet for oven) at 350 degrees F place potatoes cut side down for 10 minutes, turn and cook for another 5 minutes. (watch the color of the potatoes on the grill as they may be cooked faster than the oven).
    6. 6
      Remove from heat and let potatoes rest 5 minutes before eating.

      Lovely crisp spuds with a great "twang" from the lemon. Rather than use good broth, I used stock cubes & water to save on waste, worked a treat.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #38* I used baby red potatoes, and they needed almost 15 minutes to be fork tender. Followed the recipe with times and amounts. Finished in the oven @ 350*. Did bother me a tad to use 3 cups of chicken broth, then discard. They were tasty enough, brightened by last splash of lemon juice. Doubt that I would use this labor intensive method again. Thanks for posting, Chili Spice.

      This was a really nice recipe, which added great flavour to the potatoes. I made the first few steps in the microwave without any problems and baked the potaoes in the oven from then on. I had large potaoes so I quarted them. I did have a lot of broth leftover from cooking the potaotes and wondered how it would go if I froze it to use again for next time, but I chickened out!!! lol This is a recipe that would go well on the grill/B.B.Q on a summers night, or for a cold winters night as a side dish. Cold tonight here and it made for a wonderful side dish the whole family enjoyed. The flavours are wonderful when the potatoes are cooked this way. Thanks CHILLI SPICE, a very nice recipe I will be serving again, all year round!
