(adapted from recipe by Alton Brown)

The meat just falls right off the bone. It is so moist and garlicky delicious!

***Tip: An easy way to peel garlic cloves is to use a chef's knife. Cut off the base of the garlic clove. Place clove, curved side up, under flat blade of chef's knife (the blade needs to be parallel with cutting board) on cutting board and use the heel of your hand gently slam the portion of the knife on top of the clove. The clove should slide right out of the skin. This also helps relieve some frustration at the same time :)

Baby Dutch Potatoes

1 1/2 lb baby Dutch potatoes
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
10-15 springs of thyme or rosemary
10 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/2 tbsp - 1 tbsp coarse sea salt (to taste)
fresh ground black pepper to taste

1) Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
2) Scrub potatoes.
3) In 2.5 quart round dish with lid, add potatoes.
4) Toss potatoes with olive oil to coat.
5) Toss potatoes with sea salt and pepper to taste.
6) Add garlic clove and rosemary or thyme sprigs.
7) Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
8) Stir potatoes and bake another 30 minutes.
9) Serve with garlicky chicken.

**After chicken has been in the oven for 30 minutes, put potatoes in there too. Both will be done at the same time.
