Mediterranean roasted potatoes

I can’t wait for you to try the braised potatoes! They are incredible after braising in the chicken juices and our Mediterranean sauce. One of my favorite things to do when enjoying this meal is to mash the braised potatoes up a bit on my plate. They soak up even more of the flavorful, concentrated braising sauce, and every bite is the perfect, savory bite.
