I was one of the lucky gather members chosen to receive a sample of of the McCormick Recipe Inspirations. I received the Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes Recipe Inspirations kit, which is basically a sample pack with spices included for a very simple but extremely tasty recipe.
- 2 tsp. McCormick Paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp. McCormick Crushed Rosemary Leaves
- 1 tsp McCormick Minced Garlic
- 1 tsp McCormick Coarse Ground Pepper
All I needed to add was 2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp. salt
Bone-in chicken thighs (skin removed)
1 1/2 lbs small red potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes.
The recipe stated to put mix the spices in a bowl with the olive oil and salt, and to then turn the meat and potatoes in the mixture before adding it onto a baking pan.
Since I am a vegetarian, I decided to separate the meat and potatoes, but other than that I followed the instructions.
It was very simple to prepare, and I put everything in the oven, while I went to do my cardio exercise for the day. When I was done with my exercise, dinner was done as well and ready to be served.
I had steamed some corn as sides, and I quickly fixed a salad as well.
The meal was extremely easy, just what I needed after a long and tiring day. The best part was that it was a huge success. My oldest son has been getting tired of chicken lately, but he asked for seconds and thirds of the chicken. My husband only had good things to say about both the chicken and the potatoes, and I sure loved the potatoes as well. The spice mix was perfect, and my seven-year old even commented about how much he loved the spices. He is not a big potato fan, but he ate all of his potatoes because of the spice mix.
At our house the Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Potatoes McCormick Recipe Inspirations get five stars out of five. Bravo to McCormick for coming up with such a simple way to spice up dinner.
