1. This recipe is adapted from Sunny Anderson's Rosemary and Thyme Chicken
2. Sunny's recipe calls for whole chicken but you can use any parts you have.
3. Make sure that the carrots are big and you only cut them in a half. I cut mine one more time and they could use less time to cook.
4. The potatoes came out super amazing, but they need to be cut in half in order to soak all the juices from the pan.
