  • ½ tbsp Frontier Co-op Turmeric Twist Savory Blend
  • ¼ tsp White Pepper


  • You may begin the marinating process 1 day to 1 hour prior to cooking.
  • Place thawed chicken into a large baking then add the garlic, lemon juice and rosemary making sure to place pieces of minced garlic and rosemary underneath the skin of the chicken. You can achieve this by making small cuts into the skin and place the herbs into the pockets.

  • Wash & cut new potatoes into wedges and season with a small portion of the Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining seasonings. Remove any exposed rosemary or garlic, by either placing it securely under the chicken or removing it entirely from the dish, because they will otherwise burn.
  • Cook the chicken for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. 
  • Remove the baking dish from the oven. Add the potatoes.
  • Baste the chicken by carefully spooning the liquid that has formed in the bottom of the dish over the meat and uncooked potatoes.
  • Reduce temperature to 325 degrees and return the baking dish to the oven for 20 more minutes.
