6 large chicken thighs (skin on or off)

10 fingerling potatoes, slice in half lengthwise and parboiled

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

4 cloves garlic

½ tsp red pepper flakes

2 lemons

2 Tbs (30 mL) olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Remove leaves from one sprig of rosemary. On a cutting board, combine with garlic, red pepper flakes and salt. Mash into a paste. Transfer to a bowl, add the juice of one lemon (reserve the squeezed halves) and olive oil. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
