1 .whole skinned chicken
1 .breasts, cut in halves
1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray an 8" square baking pan with
non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, garlic, salt, cinnamon, and
pepper. Add chicken and potatoes; toss well to coat thoroughly.
3. Arrange chicken in a single layer in prepared baking pan; add
vinegar, then top evenly with potatoes. Bake 40-50 minutes, until
potatoes are tender, chicken is cooked thoroughly and thigh juices
run clear when pierced with a fork. Serve topped with pan juices.
Lin's notes: Since we don't like dark meat, I used 2-3 whole skinned
chicken breasts, cut in halves, and then cut in half again. I also
peeled the potatoes, as Pat doesn't like potato skins. It turned out
great! I served this with a green salad and white wine.
