Baked Chicken

this is one of my favorite recipes for baked chicken. i got it out of and issue of fine cooking about five years ago and i've adapted it somewhat since then. it's very easy to make. melt about half a stick of butter in a 13 x 9 inch pan. add chopped potatoes (i think red are best), about 6 chopped shallots (onions will also work), 4 cloves pressed garlic, and lots of fresh oregano (rosemary and sage also work well). then dredge four chicken quarters skin side down in the butter mixture and place skin side up in the pan. sprinkle the chicken and potatoes generously with freshly ground pepper and course salt (do not skimp on the salt). bake for 45 minutes to an hour at 425 F. the chicken will come out nice and crispy. mmm....
