  • Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch discs                     2 large
  • Salt and pepper                                                           For seasoning

Procedure

Note: You may also add some pitted olives along with cherry tomatoes in this dish for a change.

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Toss the diced potatoes with 3 tbsp of olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the seasoned potatoes across the bottom of a roasting pan and place chicken thighs on top.

  4. Drizzle with remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil all over the dish and scatter rosemary on top.

  6. Bring out the pan, pick out chicken thighs, using tongs and transfer onto a serving platter.
  7. Return the vegetables into the oven and bake for 10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender and golden brown at surface.
