I suppose it is fall, although you’d never know it by this Hawaii weather. While I love the tropical climate, I really do miss the changing of seasons. It’s just so comforting when summer changes to fall. Swimsuits get swapped for sweaters, blankets get brought out of storage, and the kitchen gets filled with scents of slowly simmering soup.
This roasted chicken and potatoes dish just screams fall. It is a one-pan meal (minimal clean up!) that blends lovely, simple flavors together. I used a blend of red potato and sweet potato, but feel free to use whatever potatoes you have around the house. The one thing that ties the whole dish together are the whole garlic cloves, which get browned to perfection. So don’t skip the garlic.
