My friend Amy James has to feed a family of five everyday so she knows a thing or two about making more than one meal out of the dishes she cooks. These potatoes as well as her
Pan Roasted Chicken and Oven-Roasted Farmers’ Market Vegetables will provide your family with four additional dishes – Rosemary, Feta and Potato Grilled Pizza, Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowl, Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice and a Cobb Salad.
