  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat 3 teaspoons of the oil over medium. Stir in garlic, ½ teaspoon of the salt, ¼ teaspoon of the rosemary and ¼ teaspoon of the pepper. Add potatoes; toss to coat. Cook, covered, 5 minutes (do not stir).
  2. Push potatoes to one side of skillet. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to other side of skillet. Arrange chicken in skillet alongside potatoes. Cook, uncovered, 8 minutes.
  3. Stir potatoes and turn chicken. Sprinkle chicken with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, rosemary, and pepper. Top with lemon slices. Cook, covered, 8 to 10 minutes more or until chicken is done (165°F) and potatoes are brown. (If needed, remove potatoes as they are done and continue cooking chicken until done.) If desired, sprinkle with additional rosemary.

The potatoes burnt while the chicken was cooking. The flavors mixed well though. I want to try this again and see how I can do it without the chicken turning dry and the potatoes overcooking.

Really enjoyed it and would make it again. I didn't use the rosemary, but the salt pepper and garlic powder made a great seasoning.

I fried apple slices in the pan after taking the sweet potatoes out while continuing to cook the chicken. The result was a subtle sweetness to the meal. Apples fried in small amount of oil, spices, etc would be a good side dish.
