Jamie Oliver Inspired Rosemary Roasts

I did a simple roast chicken thighs and baby potatoes on a lazy Sunday ala Jamie Oliver. This is my simply hentam version. I have a pack of fresh rosemary, so I decided to stuff some underneath the skin of 4 chicken thighs together with some butter. Drizzle some olive oil over and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly grounded black pepper. Roast in the oven and they came out looking like this...

For the baby potatoes, dunk in cleaned potatoes in boiling water and cook till tender. Drain and place in roasting pan. Coat them up with olive oil, chopped rosemary, sea salt and black pepper. Roast them in the oven till golden. I also have some traffic light colours capsicums and sliced brinjal that I spread them in a tray. Again I drizzle over olive oil, sea salt and black pepper combo before chucking in the oven. No rosemary here as 1 pack is seriously not enough for 4 chicken thighs and a bunch of baby potatoes. Need at least 2, must remember this!

Easy peasy eh? The thighs were tender and the skins... mmm crispy, very sinful indeed and I simply loved those roasted vegetables. I have leftovers where I shredded the chicken, mix in sliced potatoes and mayo. Turned them into a chicken sandwich lined with the sweet roasted capsicums, served with a blob of mustard - utmost delish!
