Planning Christmas Dinner
So for this Christmas, I'm trying to keep things easy and simple since I'll be doing the cooking. Chicken, some veggies, and potatoes. I'm using the French Chicken in a Pot recipe (note: does 250 degrees seem a bit too low?). My problem is the potatoes. I'd like to make either the ultra crispy new potatoes with garlic and herbs or the ultra crispy roast potatoes, both by Kenji. The problem is the oven temperature.
The chicken will be small, about 3.5 pounds so I think going by the recipe it would cook about an hour (unless that is too low so hopefully someone will correct me). The potato recipes both cook at 500 degrees.
So how do I cook both things at once or should I look for another recipe for potatoes?
