This was the first recipe from this site I've used that has turned out to be so disappointing. I followed the recipe almost exactly, although I didn't add as much olive oil after reading previous reviews. I pan-fried the chicken a little bit to brown it, and I baked the potatoes for about 25 minutes before adding the chicken on top. I marinated the entire thing all together overnight to let the flavors of the rosemary, garlic, and oregano soak in. The dish smelled delicious while baking. However, when I tried one of the potatoes, they were so--BLAND!! I was really excited about this recipe, because it sounded fantastic. I enjoyed the flavor of the rosemary, but it made the whole dish a little sweet without adding any real kick to it. I sprinkled some seasoning over the whole dish, and added way more salt, but it just did not turn out well. The recipe had no bite to it, was very bland, and I would NOT recommend it. My dad, who loves just about everything and is the least picky person I know, added salt, seasoning, and then BBQ sauce to his chicken--which tells me it was really horrible. The next night, he had a few of the potatoes, but he wouldn't touch the chicken.
One thing I thought might've improved the recipe was if I'd added some breadcrumbs to the potatoes, and if I'd used white wine as a base for the dish--but even then I'm just not sure. There are way better recipes on this site...I'll just keep looking.
