3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, or small potatoes, peeled and cut into thick slices

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried rosemary

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Fresh parsley, optional, for garnish


Set the Stage: Preheat your oven to 475º F and apply a non-stick spray to a large baking sheet.

Herb-Butter Creation: In a spacious bowl, combine butter, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, basil, salt, and pepper. Use a microwave to melt the mixture.

Potato Coating: Introduce sliced potatoes to the bowl, ensuring each slice is thoroughly coated with the herbed butter.

Single-Layer Setup: Arrange potatoes in a single layer on your prepped baking sheet and set them into the oven.

First Roast: Allow potatoes to roast for 15 minutes. Optionally, flip them, and grant another 15-minute roast.

Broth Introduction: Remove the sheet, execute another optional flip, and carefully cascade chicken broth onto the baking sheet.

Final Roast: Return to the oven and allow a 10-15 minute roasting period, or until they graciously accept a fork.

Serve and Savor: Remove, serve hot, and consider garnishing with fresh parsley. Indulge and enjoy!
