Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Scrub and quarter potatoes (halve any large quarters). Arrange potatoes in pan.
In a small bowl combine oil, molasses, vinegar, thyme, and salt. Drizzle mixture over potatoes. Toss gently to coat. Bake potatoes, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Add nuts; stir to mix. Bake 15 to 20 minutes more or until potatoes are tender, stirring once. Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with fresh chive. Makes 8 side-dish servings.
