Chicken Marsala with Roasted Red Potatoes

To start off 2016, I decided to make a delicious meal for my family that included chicken and potatoes. Chicken Marsala is a quick and flavorful meal and it can be paired with various vegetables such as roasted carrots, asparagus or even a green salad. For this recipe I was excited to coat the red potatoes with my favorite seasonings: oregano, basil, and rosemary + garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. These roasted potatoes make the perfect side dish!

This recipe is a great way to start the New Year for those of us who want to incorporate more protein and vegetables into our diet. One goal I have for 2016 is to get in the kitchen more around dinner time. 

How did you start off the New Year?
