Man, TGIO..Thank Goodness It's Over

Thank goodness it's over.  Got the cat to the Vet and she ought to be feeling a LOT better now.  Her blood levels were good and all of her additional procedures were done so she's in good shape and I'm being made to pay for it as she is hiding now that we are home.

I just made this dish and I am giving you the recipe because it is falling down DELICIOUS!!!  Let me know if you try it.  I have already nipped some potatoes out of it..heaven.  I made it for my boy..and also some brownies.  He'll be here tonight.

Roasted Chicken w/ red Potatoes:

2 teaspoons Paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon minced garlic (dry is fine)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
6 bone in skinless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, diced into small cubes or chunks.

Throw all the ingredients into a large bowl and using a couple of wooden spoons, coat it all with the spices.  Toss to coat them all well.

Arrange it all in a flat layer in a 15x10x1 pan that you lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.

(the foil..spray the foil) 

Roast in a 425 degree pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is throughly cooked and the potatoes tender.

It took me about 35 minutes..I tried a few!  DEElicious.


  1. I can already taste it! I'm a thigh kinda girl so this is PERFECT and you can bet I'll try it over the holiday and report back. When I copied it and put it on a little txt, I even noted, "From Carole (Ramblingon) 12/3/10. See? Credit given :)
    As for the poor,betrayed, hiding Miss Kitt, she beat you to the punch reporting this morning. I knew that right after the last key was pushed by that precious paw, she'd be racing to either under the bed or under the covers. Don't worry; after she gives it a little thought, she'll forgive you. And too, it's sorta like childbirth: owwwwyyyy pain but then forgotten :D
    XOXOXO I'm off to buy a world of batteries.

  2. I'm sure the Admiral is very glad it's all over too!

    The recipe looks delicious and best of all, easy. I loathe cooking more than I possibly can express, so anything simple and tasty is fabulous.

  3. Hooray, I am glad you are safely home from the vet with Miss Catt and things will be better for her.
    The dish sounds delicious!!

  4. Hi Carole, I copied your recipe and will give it a try real soon. I have some chicken legs and breasts in the freezer and will pull some out to thaw in a day or 2. I may have to get one or 2 of the spices before I can start useing this recipe, it sounds yummy. I will let you know how I like it. The only thing I won't use is the salt, I need a salt free diet.

  5. Glad Miss Catt made it to the vet okay...she won't hide very long, especially as she begins to feel better.
    My, that chicken dish sounds wonderful.

  6. A good news Sis! that make you much easir for you? Miss Catt might felt sorry for you after you have had a bad time yesterday:-)

  7. I like the easy one dish kind of meal and this fills the bill. Gonna copy it. Miss Catt will come out to sleep with you tonight, I bet.

  8. Actually I make something very similar too that. I got it from my mom. It is tasty and easy to make. It would have to be easy if I can make it.
