    Easy and superbly flavoursome - which means I'll certainly be making this again. I scaled the recipe back for two and used (skin on) chicken thighs. I still cooked more potatoes than we ate for this meal as I anticipated - correctly - that cooked with so many yummy ingredients that they would be enjoyed over the next few days in other dishes. The only changes I made were to proportionally increase the garlic (as we love garlic) and to use part Recipe #135453 and part white wine instead of water. On the recommendation of other reviewers I turned the potatoes when I turned the chicken so that they were well-flavoured with the amazingly delicious juices. My chicken and potatoes were in the oven for about an hour and 10 minutes. I followed AuntSana's superb idea for reducing the fat: a nifty trick which I'll also be using for other recipes. Thank you, Ravenseyes, for sharing this wonderful recipe!

    I hesitate to review this recipe because I really took some liberty in altering it. But I just wanted to thank you so much for the inspiration and method of cooking chicken and potatoes in the oven. I made a much smaller version using 4 chicken thighs and 2 potatoes. I made a paste of fresh minced garlic and salt and rubbed it over the thighs. I salt and peppered the cut up potatoes and drizzled and tossed them with olive oil and added them to the baking dish. I squeezed fresh lemon juice over the entire pan, then added chicken broth to the bottom of the pan and baked per recipe. Absolutely awesome! The potatoes are so soft and full of flavor. I have already made this twice in a short amount of time and will make it a regular on our menus. Thank you so much!
