Baby Red Potatoes with Chives

Baby Red Potatoes with Chives

(4 servings)

  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, whole
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Preheat the oven to 400 F.  Leave the potatoes unpeeled, or for a decorative look, peel a strip around each one.  Place in a ziplock bag.  Add the olive oil and chives, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Seal the bag and shake until the potatoes are coated.  Place the potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet and roast until they can easily be pierced with a fork.  (If you are not reducing the oven temperature like I did to accommodate the lamb, you can roast the potatoes at 400 for just 20-30 minutes, or at 350 for 30-40 minutes.)
