- 500g (1lb) baby new potatoes, washed
- 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 level tsps sea salt
Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C (it should be on anyway, cooking the chicken).
Put the potatoes into a roasting tin. Add the garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Wearing oven gloves, put the roasting tin in the oven and roast for 20 mins. Again, wearing oven gloves, remove the tin from the oven. Turn the potatoes, to help them brown evenly, and cook for another 15 mins, until they’re golden and crispy.
