Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

It’s Fall comfort food this week and this is probably my favorite comfort meal that isn’t pasta. Let’s be honest pasta and comfort food go hand in hand. But sometimes you just have to switch it up and this is one recipe to keep.

In NC we don’t get many cool days, but on a rainy dreary day, comfort food calls my name. I love that this is a one pot meal or dish meal. If you are using a pot make sure it is an oven proof for high temperature. I had to switch mine during the cooking time. My oven proof pan wasn’t oven proof. My dutch oven is in storage. That would be my preferred cooking method. Thank goodness I caught it early in the cooking process. So I switched the chicken and potatoes over to a baking dish and it turned out perfectly.

I added some fresh rosemary and lemon in the dish, for a more intense lemon and rosemary flavor. Pair this with a nice white wine for the finishing touch.

If you can't find fresh poultry seasoning at the store use about 1 tbsp of dried seasoning. You can make your own by using thyme, sage, rosemary and marjoram.
