Easy Oven-Roasted Chicken with Rosemary

Easy Oven-Roasted Chicken with Rosemary

The second in my 'foolproof Christmas recipes' series. This is very simple to prepare: you just need to spread the ingredients out in an oven-safe dish and then roast in the oven. As an added bonus, your kitchen will be filled with the scent of rosemary.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken thigh
1 (300 g)
Potatoes
2
Garlic
as needed (3-6 cloves)
Rosemary (fresh)
1 pack
Salt and black pepper
as needed
Extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Remove any eyes (sprouts) from the potatoes and cook in boiling water, skins on. Cook until they are soft enough to pierce easily with a fork. Remove from the water and cut into quarters.
2. Cut the chicken thigh into 6-7 pieces. Spread out the chicken, garlic (skin on) and potatoes in an oven-safe dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Pour on an even layer of extra virgin olive oil, and top with plenty of rosemary. Bake in a 480°C/250°C oven for 20-30 minutes.
4. When the chicken is no longer pink and cooked through, it's done. Peel the skin from the garlic before serving.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was inspired by a Tuscan dish. You only need to spread the ingredients out in a dish and roast! So simple, and perfect for Christmas.
Note: The Rosemary is only added for the aroma, and should not be eaten.
