Lemon Roasted Red Potatoes

I like trying out new recipes on my boyfriend, and he's always willing to taste-test. The lemon juice and thyme give these golden potatoes fabulous flavor.—Sally Sue Campbell, Greenville, Tennessee

    I've been using this Taste of Home recipe for years and years and years and years. My 16 year old daughter, who hates helping me out in the kitchen, will make these on her own! That's how good they are! I pour most of the remaining marinade into the pan with the potatoes, because we love the flavor profile so much, we don't want to let any of it go to waste. (:

    I really like this recipe! I made it with lemon chicken, rice & vegetables & lemon chicken gravy sauce. I cooked it about 45-50 minutes to get them tender enough. I didn't taste much lemon flavor in them, but I might try adding more lemon next time or even letting them soak for a while...I think just tossing them I didn't get as much lemon flavor as I would've liked. When I made it with the meal I mentioned above I would dip the potatoes in the gravy...but I recently made these with a lemon pepper rotissarie chicken with no gravy and I was more aware of the lemon flavor it was lacking. Delicous though!

    These are SPECTACULAR! We liked them even better as leftovers since the lemon flavor soaked in even more.~ Theresa
