Baked Italian Chicken with Roasted Garlic Potatoes

We just started our Beachbody Ultimate Reset today, and I’m excited to see results. I’m hoping I get my energy back, my metabolism back, and lose a little weight in the process. I’ll report more on this in another post!

Last night, we had a delicious Italian dinner. All done in the oven, which, personally, is my favorite way of cooking chicken. It doesn’t dry out, and it’s just comes out looking beautiful. Since both dishes are made in the oven, I used the higher temperature from the potatoes recipe and set the timer for 45 minutes. When 15 minutes went by, I switched the potatoes to the bottom shelf and put the chicken in the middle shelf. This worked just fine, and the chicken was perfectly cooked in 30 minutes.
