Rosemary Baked Chicken with Potatoes

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Serves: (6, I’m assuming…the original post didn’t have servings listed! We split it into 4 servings, though, because of the packaging of the chicken thighs.~Aili)

Recipe courtesy of McCormick®. (Hence the specific-brand products. ~Aili)

Nutrition Information (per serving): Calories: 264, Fat: 12 g, Carbohydrates: 19 g, Cholesterol: 64 mg, Sodium: 334 mg, Fiber: 3 g,
Protein: 20 g.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon McCormick® Paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Rosemary Leaves, finely crushed
1 teaspoon Sea Salt using McCormick® Sea Salt Grinder
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Coarse Ground
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
6 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed (about 2 pounds)
1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes, halved


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix oil, paprika, rosemary, sea salt, pepper and garlic powder in large bowl. Add chicken and potatoes; toss to coat well. Arrange potatoes in single layer on foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray.
  • Bake 15 minutes. Push potatoes to one side of pan. Place chicken on pan.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes longer or until the potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked through, turning potatoes occasionally.

Aili’s notes:
I used rosemary flavored olive oil instead of plain because I saw we didn’t have much rosemary left. I did use about a teaspoon of what we had and crushed them in the mortar and pestle. They’re kind of old, so I’m hoping the flavored olive oil will boost the rosemary flavor that the dry herbs might have lost.

I also used plain salt. We DO have one of their sea salt grinders, but that is also low.

I used white pepper because I couldn’t find the black pepper.

I used chicken thigh fillets because they were skinless and we wouldn’t have to mess with bones. I like bone-in chicken, but I didn’t want to have the hassle of removing the skin. The package I had only had 5 thighs, and two of them were pretty small. So we had the two larger thighs tonight, and will have the two small ones and split the odd thigh tomorrow. So the calorie count above will be off by a bit.

Finally, the store didn’t have any red potatoes. Argh! But I used white potatoes instead.

End result? Very tasty. Will make this one again!
