What’s for dinner? Rosemary roasted chicken with potatoes!Posted at 6:41 pm by rachel in recipes
Did you guys pick up a bunch of the free McCormick recipe inspirations packets at Dominick’s last month? My favorite is this Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes — which, luckily, they list the full recipe on the back so you can very easily make it by yourself without the packets. (The packets are easy and all, but it’s not really worth paying the normal $1.99 (!!) price for these when they’re not free with coupons.)
I made mine with 3.5 lbs chicken legs (because I had a big pack from when they were $.58/lb at Pete’s Market earlier this week) and 3lbs small golden potatoes — and doubled the recipe (ie: used two packages of seasonings!), used two pans, cooked them an extra 15 minutes, and didn’t bother with the foil. Here’s the recipe as listed on the McCormick package:
Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes, a la McCormick
2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp crushed rosemary
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp salt (I used less)
6 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed (about 2 lbs)
1 1/2 lbs small red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
Mix oil and spices in large bowl. Add chicken and potatoes and toss to coat well. Arrange in single layer on foil-lined 15x10x1 inch baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Roast uncovered at 425 for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender, turning potatoes occasionally.
How much was dinner?
The spice packets were free after coupon. The potatoes were $2.00 at Ultra last week. The chicken legs were $2.04 at Pete’s. The oil, cooking spray, and salt were negligible. Added fruit on the side, so let’s call it $5.00 altogether — and there are leftovers for tomorrow. Yeah, you can coupon and still eat nice home cooked whole foods. And yeah, I’m counting this as homemade even though I used pre-measured spice packets, so there, lol.
