WOW! Our family LOVED this! Was delicious, quick and so very easy; easy to cook, easy to clean-up, and easy on the pocket book!!! We substituted boneless/skinless chicken thighs for ours (increased cook time by just few min at the end) and served with roasted lemony parmesan asparagus as well! YUM! Its amazing how the simplest of recipes can still yield the best of resaults! Thank you!!

My family loved this recipe. Added asperigas and juice from 1/4 lemon over entire dish. Will recommend this recipe and add to family dinners.

If using thinner slices of chicken breast, cook for 3 minutes then 6. Try paprika on the potato fingerlings.

The chicken was a little bland, perhaps could have used a little more seasoning. The fingerling potatoes were delish however.

Interesting that this is called "roasted" chicken when it's really just pan fried!

I used two large chicken breasts instead, and increased the last cook time by around 5 minutes. It turned out very good! Very quick and easy recipe, and a nice change of pace.

I made this tonight and it was delicious. Easy to do.  I didn't have fingerlings but used Yukon Gold potatoes and worked just fine.  Simple, quick and have leftovers for tomorrow.  I think next time I'll increase the recipe so I have it for more days in advance since it would easily heat up for me after I get home from work.  Love it.

Ditto with the potatoes. They were surprisingly delicious. My first dish to use my own fresh herbs. Wow! Fresh makes a real difference, huh? Liked the one pan idea. Balked at first but it worked out fine. Also, I used deboned, skinned thighs, cheaper and more flavorful. Nice recipe. Thank you.

I really enjoyed this recipe because of its simplicity but the flavor is still there. i didnt have fingerling potatoes so i just cut up what big potatoes we had into fingerling sizes. they took a little longer to cook than the recipe stated but it was well worth it. planning on making this again tonight and thought i would comment since my family enjoyed it so much.
