Roasted Garlic Chicken with Red Potatoes

Our house is now on the market. Which means I’m in “do-all-it-takes-to-keep-it-super-clean” mode. I’m coming up with as many shortcuts and time savers as I can to keep the house clean and picked up throughout the day. We’ve already had 2 showings…another one on the calendar for this weekend. In anticipation of this “someone could be coming to look any time,” I’ve decided that most of our meals will be baked.

No need to dirty the stove-top.

No time to clean up any spills or overflows.

This is the first “house on the market bakes” I’ve made. Thus far. I imagine many more in our future. (For more easy cleanup dinners, visit One Dish Dinners!)

Garlic. Don’t skimp on it when you make this roasted chicken and red potatoes. Be liberal. Very liberal.

(I should note that you could also use fresh garlic…I’d use 8-10 cloves, crushed or minced!)
