One-Pan Chicken

olive oil
a 3 1/2 pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 1/4 pounds new potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice
3 medium red onions, cut into segments
16 garlic cloves, unpeeled
3 red peppers, seeded and quartered
coarse sea salt
1/2 cup chopped parsley


Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Get 2 baking dishes and pour in some olive oil to coat. Arrange the pieces of chicken, the potatoes, onions, garlic cloves, and peppers on them. Then drizzle some more oil over, making sure everything's glossy and well slicked (but not dripping), sprinkle with the salt, and bake for about 45 minutes.

When done (and test all component parts), strew over the parsley and serve straight from the baking dishes.
