Lime Chicken with Cherry Tomatoes and Potatoes
4 medium peeled waxy potatoes, thinly sliced
Flaky sea salt, coarse black pepper
4 whole chicken legs
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 limes, cut into 8 wedges each
1/2 cup dry white wine
Preheat oven to 425.
Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil and blanch the potatoes for about 5 minutes or until al dente. Drain the potatoes then spread them in a baking dish, just large enough to fit the chicken legs in, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Cut off and discard any large chunks of fat from the chicken legs. Rub the chicken with a little olive oil, seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. Place on top of the potatoes. Arrange the tomatoes and limes in between the chicken legs.
Whisk together the white wine and 3 TBSPs of olive and oil and pour over the chicken. Roast, spooning the juices from the pan over the chicken every ten minutes or so for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear when you prick the thickest part of a thigh with a skewer.
Turn on the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until the chicken skin is golden brown and starts sizzling. Serve immediately.
