Recipe 10: Zesty Roasted Chicken & Potatoes

Prep Time: 8 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins

The great thing about this recipe is that one sauce takes on two different tastes. The chicken doesn't absorb as much of the mustard and really shows off the garlic, chive taste while the potatoes pull in the creamier textures and almost make an easy potato salad--only not mushy.

Here we go.

Boneless chicken breasts (1 per serving per person)
1 lb red potatoes (cut into quarters or thick slices)
2 toes minced garlic
1/3 cup mayo
3 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp dill pickle juice (It just adds a salty/vinegar base to the potatoes)
Chopped chives (Fresh or jar) for garnish

1.) Heat oven to 350.
2.) Grease baking pan.
3.) Wash and cut potatoes.
4.) Put cut potatoes in a microwave safe casserole dish with a lid. Add 1/4 cup of water and microwave for 5-7 minutes.
5.) Mix all ingredients except chives.
6.) Place chicken and potatoes on baking pan and coat with sauce. (It is easiest if you have a brush but spoons work just fine too.)
7.) Bake uncovered 30 mins. (May need longer for thicker pieces).
8.) Add chives to taste and broil until meat and potatoes are slightly browned.

One pan, one bowl, one casserole dish--super easy. Enjoy!
