Herbed Potatoes
3 large potatoes

1/2 teaspoon rosemary
2 tablespoons oil
celery salt to taste
garlic salt to taste

My Notes:
This recipe takes about an hour all said and done from the slicing to the prep and defrosting the frozen chicken that I like to use since it stores well. Defrost the chicken, wrap in plastic wrap to keep the chicken together while you pound it out, then drop in the pot. I serve these herbed potatoes with a lot of things because they're just super simple to make and can bake while you do other things.
