Herb Roasted Red Potatoes for two

Hello everyone, so today I thought about sides for the chicken cutlets we made yesterday. Herb roasted potatoes will go great and if you use red potatoes then you dont have to peel them so that is one less step you need to worry about. I should also point out that if you are using fresh herbs dont worry about the stems because the herbs will fall away from the stems and you can just pull them out when you are done. For the chicken cutlets you will want to take the herbs off the stems before coating the chicken with them. Ok so let's get started!

Ingredients:

1 pound of red potatoes, I know this sounds like a lot for two people, the reason leftovers for another meal or maybe a special breakfast.
The other half of the herb packet from the chicken cutlets
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Aluminum foil

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cut the potatoes in half and arrange on the foil, make sure the foil is rolled out big enough to hold the potatoes. From there we drizzle the potatoes with extra virgin olive oil, herbs and salt and pepper. Fold up the edges of the foil around the potatoes to form an envelope almost. You want the potatoes completely covered and put your foil pouch on the cookie sheet and bake. Every 15 minutes during the cooking time you want shake the potatoes to make sure they cook evenly. After about 45 minutes they should be ready. Dont worry about over cooking because unless you are boiling them you cannot over bake a potato as long as the skin doesn't burn. If the skin does burn just peel the skin off the potato should be fine.

I hope you enjoy this recipe its one of my personal favorites. Sometimes the less ingredients the more flavor you get from whatever your cooking. Live, laugh and love everyone!
