  • Mixing Bowl
  • Rimmed Sheet Pan
  • aluminum foil


  • 2 pounds Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 4 cloves Garlic, peeled and crushed with the palm of your hand
  • 1 Lemon, sliced into wedges
  • ¾ cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Foil, for roasting
  • 8 sprigs Fresh Herbs (like rosemary, thyme, oregano, or a combination)


  • Preheat oven to 425°F / 220°C.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes, 3 tablespoon olive oil, garlic cloves, lemon wedges, chicken stock, and salt. Stir gently to combine.
  • Pour mixture out on a rimmed sheet pan, scraping all of the liquids out of the bowl and onto the potatoes. Spread everything out, making sure the potatoes are in a single layer (if not, you’ll need to use a second sheet pan).
  • Cover pan tightly with foil.
  • Roast potatoes, covered, for 40 minutes.
  • While the potatoes roast, coat the herb sprigs in remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil (this will help them to release their flavor into the potatoes without burning).
  • After potatoes have been roasting for 40 minutes, remove foil. Flip potatoes with a spatula, and gently fold in herb sprigs.
  • Return potatoes to oven and continue roasting, uncovered, until nearly all of the stock has cooked off and potatoes are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  • Discard herb sprigs. Season potatoes with some black pepper. Serve warm.


Kosher Salt - I use Morton’s Kosher Salt to test recipes. If using table salt, reduce by about half. If using Diamond Kosher Salt, increase by about 25%. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to salt, so be sure to taste and adjust as you go.
