Garlic Potatoes and Grilled Chicken

On Sunday, after a day of baking various things we still needed to eat dinner. I had just been to the market where I buy my produce that morning, and had also just watched a recent Sunny Anderson show. She's got a new show, Cooking for Real, on Food Network. I'm not in love with her style or the show, but her Garlic Hasselback Potatoes caught my eye.

My Husband didn't care much for the potatoes, but I thought the garlic really made them. For once, I didn't feel they needed additional butter - or my favorite, sour cream. I didn't bother to make her herbed sour cream, and they really didn't need it.

The chicken was made very simply with a herb mix that we picked up at Costco recently. It has panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese with a really flavorful mix of herbs. The kids could have done without it, too much flavor I guess. My Husband and I liked the flavor and the chicken would go nicely over salad greens, which could be a separate meal all together.

I made Hasselback potatoes once about 15 years ago and they totally bombed...of course that was back when I was totally clueless in the kitchen! Must be time for me to try them again, yours look so pretty!
