"This is so good!! It is out of a WW cookbook called "Simple & Classic Homecooking". Has only 1 Point per serving. Yukon gold potatoes give this dish a wonderful buttery flavor. Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese over the potaotes for a delicious cheesy flavor option. Hope you enjoy! Edit 5/24/07 This worked great on the grill. Place all the ingredients on heavy duty foil, seal and cooked about 30 minutes."

"Great flavours. Next time I might pre-boil the potatoes for 10 min and add them to the pan without liqiud to try and get the potatoes crunchy"
"Yum, yum, yum. These tasty taters were wonderful. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. Tender and flavorful just the way I like them. I made 1/2 the recipe for the two of us, it was perfect. A lovely addition to our steak and cucumber salad. Thanks for sharing TeresaS."
"This is a very tasty dish. I substituted olive oil for the margarine, and used homemade salt-free stock. These are smothered potatoes, so don't expect them to be crisp. Yukon golds are definitely the right potato here. Great recipe, thanks for posting!"
"I love onions and they cant help but make potatoes better :D"
"My potatoes got a little mushy, but that's not a huge complaint because the husband and I happily ate 'em! They cooked a lot quicker than I expected, too. Thanks!"
"These turned out really well - I made as written, except for using veg stock, and slicing instead of cubing. About half the cooking time I had the lid halfway off, because there was quite a lot of liquid still in the pot. That worked out well, the potatoes were well cooked but not mushy and the broth that was left was thick like gravy. And they even sat in a low oven afterwards for nearly an hour before dinner. This is a nice substitution for traditional scalloped potatoes, and so much easier! I think yukon golds or another waxy potato are a must here....definitely russets will turn to mush. And if you do slice, don't go too thin for same reason. Served for a potluck dinner tonight, everyone thought they were really good. Made for "I Recommend" tag. Thanks!"
"We liked the flavor of these potatoes and I especially liked how easy they were to make. I did use red potatoes that I had on hand and added one more potato because 3 didnt look like enough. Some of my potatoes were mushy but all the liquid did cook out in 20 minutes. Reminded me of the roasted potatoes my mom used to make when she made a roast and vegetables. I dont think the thyme was really a needed ingredient for our taste, just some salt and pepper alone would have been very good for us. Made and reviewed for Kittencal's Recipe Tag Game."
"Great lo-cal potato recipe!!! I didn't have a problem with the cooking times, but probably due to the fact that I sliced my red potatoes, rather than 1 inch cubes. Mine were rather mushy and not as crisp as I like them to be, but for the calorie difference, you can't beat them. I think next time, I might try simmer the potatoes first in the broth and then add the butter and onions for crisping them up. Thanks for sharing a great lo-cal recipe. Made for Potluck Tag Game."
"The flavour of this dish was lovely- for a low fat dish especially. My only change would be to uncover the potatoes sooner. I had to scoop the potatoes and onions out when they were cooked, leaving behind a lot of liquid, or they would have turned mushy. So a lot of the flavour was left behind with the broth. Definitely one to have again, with less liquid! Made for Please Review My Recipe."
"Mine also needed longer to cook and the potatoes turned to mush and I followed the recipe to a T. If there is a next time I will use less broth, and not cook as long because I didn't want mashed potatoes. I didn't use Yukon Gold, I don't know if this made a difference or not."
"This is such a great, easy, flavorful way to make potatoes! I didn't have any onions and it was yummy, but I look forward to adding them next time. Mine took about 10 mins. longer for all the liquid to evaporate too. Thanks for posting!"
"GREAT potato recipe! I'll be using this one again and again. Didn't change a thing and they turned out perfectly. It did take a bit longer for all of the liquid to boil down after uncovering... about 10 minutes total. Thanks very much for posting!!"
"Really nice flavour, i didn't have fresh thyme so used the dried stuff and it tasted yummy. I used normal potatoes (no idea of the name) Would make again."
"Five stars based on flavor alone. These were delicious, however, mine turned to mush in the pan...I'm sure it was my fault, I have a habit of dumping instead of measuring and I think I way over did the chicken stock..Everyone loved them anyway....will try again...and will try to be more acurate :)"
"Yummy. No one guessed that it was diet food. I used olive oil instead of margarine and new potatoes. Everyone enjoyed it and only DH added butter when he ate them. (more habit than for taste)"
"Tasty! I didn't have any chicken broth on hand, so I had to use veggie instead. The onions carmelized very nicely, and added so much flavor to the taters. The kiddos didn't even ask for ketchup! Amazing!"
"These are so, so good and so simple to make. The flavors were just wonderful for so little ingredients. My onion became very mushy but still added a lot of flavor. I used parsley in place of thyme because of personal preference. My photos don't look like yours, but I followed the directions for preparation. Thanks so much for sharing. Just wonderful."
"Wonderful potatoes. They don't taste like a low cal recipe. DD even went back for seconds and finished the potatoes off (not an everyday occurence). I made them as written except for using new potatoes in place of the yukon gold since that's what was in the pantry."
"Excellent! Made exactly as directed - while these were cooking the last 30 minutes, I threw some fresh green beans on top, and they came out beautifully, too. Served with a roasted chicken for a superb dinner. Thanks!"
"Perfect! I've made this many times, but with butter... very bad for you. I never thought to use chicken broth instead. Turned out soooo good! I made it on the BBQ wrapped in foil. I threw some basil in with the thyme (personal love) and these we just so flavourful! Now I can eat this more often since I don't have to worry about the pounds of butter! I actually forgot to include the 1 tbs of butter the recipe calls for and didn't miss it at all!"
