Chicken Roasted with Garlic and Yukon Potatoes

I know how we all are trying to eat healthy and most dinners are chicken or fish, but if you love garlic like I do, you will love this chicken dish.

 I like to pair this dish with a nice glass of Riesling.
  • 1 pound chicken legs
  • 1 pound chicken thighs
  • 6 large Yukon potatoes
  • 20 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons good maple syrup
Preheat oven 425
Melt butter in the baking dish in the oven. Add the chicken, potatoes, and garlic and drizzle with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss together so all are well coated. Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes turning all once during baking. Remove from oven and drizzle with maple syrup and bake for another 20 minutes until chicken runs clear and potatoes are cooked through. Squeeze garlic from skin and spread on chicken. Serve
