I found this recipe online somewhere, though I can’t remember where.
- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced (we used 6. I think we sliced them too big, because we had some problems cooking them)
- 1 large onion, cut into wedges (we used a small onion)
- 6 chicken breast halves (we used boneless instead of bone-in)
- 1 teaspoon tarragon
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 garlic bulb
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
1. Place potatoes and onion in a large baking dish. Top with chicken.
2. Combine tarragon, sage, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle over chicken.
3. Cut off the top of the garlic bulb (where in comes to a closed point) and expose each clove. Place cut side up in baking dish. Drizzle oil over everything.
4. Bake at 350F, covered with foil, for 60 min. Uncover and bake 10-15 min longer (we needed to bake ours quite a bit longer for the potatoes to be even slightly ready).
5. (The original said to mash the garlic lightly and toss with onion and potatoes. Since our potatoes weren’t well-done, we mashed everything together).
Verdict: This was not a successful recipe in terms of execution. Our potatoes really brought the whole dish down, because they were too big initially and then slowed up the whole cooking process. The final product of a nice garlic flavoured mashed potatoes never materialized because they were still bits of uncooked potato that escaped the mashing process.
