Lemon Basil Potatoes

June 30, 2012

This is bright summer side dish that comes together very easily. It would be especially refreshing with grilled seafood!

You will need:

  • 1 lb baby potatoes, halved
  • 4 c chicken stock
  • 1/4 c lemon juice + 2 t, plus the lemon zest
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 c fresh basil, chopped

Then you will…

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot along with the chicken stock, 1/4 c lemon juice, olive oil and 1 t salt. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the hot pan. Stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons of lemon, lemon zest, basil and salt/pepper to taste.
  3. Serve hot or at room temperature.
