  1. Oh yum. I used to make this all the time. Except when I was living in Spain, I’d cut the potatoes into chunks to make patatas bravas.🙂 Maybe I’ll have to make this as part of my dinner tonight…

  2. Hi Serena, I can’t wait to try this. I love rosemary. I think the smell is so cleansing, and I’m always looking for chicken dishes that incorporate it. It’s great that I have found a new one with potato! Hope you had a great Christmas. xx Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy! Thank you so much for stopping by! This is a really simple recipe to make ….so simple that I hesitated to include it in the blog, at first….But I just love the garlic-rosemary flavour in these crispy potatoes, so I decided to share the recipe anyway. I am glad that you appreciate this recipe. By the way, they would be perfect with chicken dishes!🙂 Happy New year! XX
