Here is more proof that I am no photographer. Or chef, for that matter, but that's the point of my blog... I do realize my photo looks terribly icky and unappetizing, but with no photography skills, a plain ole' point and shoot, and a rather interesting looking subject, this was the best I could do :)
I'm not sure where I got this recipe, I've had it for a while and never wrote where I got it from. Now that I have confessed all of my sins regarding tonight's dinner, now I can let you know how good this was! If you peek at the amount of seasonings called for, you will quickly realize that this is definitely not a bland dish. My husband thought it was a wee bit too garlicky for his palate, but for me, the more the merrier when it comes to garlic. The potatoes - oh my gosh! They turned out so crispy and flavorful on the outside, while very tender on the inside, and I must have picked at over half of the potatoes before dinner actually was set on the table (teehee). The potatoes almost reminded me of what my dad called "tater logs" (potato wedges) from this hole-in-the-wall in a terrible part of town, which despite its venue, was five-star quality (well, as far as "tater-logs" go). And the chicken was just as great. Since the leg quarters are skinless, the outer layer of meat gets nice and crispy with all of the seasonings coating it, leaving the inside nice and moist. I really enjoyed this dinner, and it is an incredibly cheap dish as well. Hope you enjoy!
