Fingerling potatoes are small, long, knobby spuds that are shaped like fingers. Look for them in the produce department or at farmers' markets.

The potatoes came out great. The chicken needed salt and pepper, and the lemon flavor was a little too strong for our tastes. It also felt strange to put the raw chicken up against the potatoes, so if I make this again, I'll probably just use two separate pans.
