Balsamic Baked Potatoes

I knew this recipe was going to be a hit when I first saw it, so I didn't wait long to try it! Although they take long to bake the preparation is quick and simple, and they would be great to serve for company since they can bake away, nearly unattended, while you mingle. These are definitely my new favorite way to prepare potatoes, and they made a perfect pairing to the Mediterranean Chicken Packets!

Serves 4
  • 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes, halved or quartered if large
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 8 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 5 sprigs of thyme ( I used 1.5-2 tablespoons of dried thyme)
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In an 8-inch square baking dish, combine potatoes, broth, vinegar, garlic, thyme; season with salt and pepper.  Bake until potatoes are tender and liquid is reduced to a glaze, about 1 1/4 hours, tossing twice.
