Skillet Rosemary Chicken
taken from FoodNetwork.com

Ingredients
  • 3/4    pound small red-skinned potatoes, halved, or quartered if large
  • Kosher salt
  • 2    sprigs fresh rosemary, plus 1 tablespoon leaves
  • 1    clove garlic, smashed
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Juice of 2 lemons (squeezed halves reserved)
  • 2    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4    skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts (6 to 8 ounces each) (I used chicken thighs but breasts would probably be better)
  • 10    ounces cremini mushrooms, halved
Directions
Preheat the oven to 450. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a saucepan and salt the water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender, about 8 minutes; drain and set aside.

Pile the rosemary leaves, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and the red pepper flakes on a cutting board, then mince and mash into a paste using a large knife. Transfer the paste to a bowl. Stir in the juice of 1 lemon and the olive oil. Add the chicken and turn to coat.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, cover and cook until the skin browns, about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken; add the mushrooms and potatoes to the skillet and drizzle with the juice of the remaining lemon.

Add the rosemary sprigs and the squeezed lemon halves to the skillet; transfer to the oven and roast, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.
