Are You Going to Scarborough Fair?

Are you goin' to Scarborough Fair? 
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there, 
she once was a true love of mine.

Great song but I'm talking about a new chicken recipe that uses...yes, you guessed it - parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.

Scarborough Fair Chicken (adapted from Taste of the South's magazine)

¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon each fresh flat-leaf parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ lbs red potatoes, cut in half
2 or 3 carrots, cut into 2 inch pieces 
½ onion, quartered
4 chicken legs
4 chicken thighs
½ teaspoon black pepper

1.In small bowl combine olive oil, herbs and ½ teaspoon salt. Toss half of the herb mixture with carrots and potatoes. Place in the bottom of a Dutch oven. Layer onions on top.
2.Place chicken on top of vegetables and brush with remaining herb mixture. Season with remaining salt and pepper.
3.Cover and bake at 400° until vegetables are tender and chicken is done, approximately 1 hour.
4.Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
