Herbed Chicken with Red Potato Mashers

Nothing is better than a warm home cooked meal. Here is a family favorite that is perfect for those comfort food kind of evenings, from my family to yours. Enjoy!

Torrey Pines Chicken

Herbed Chicken Ingredients

1 whole chicken with skin, cut into pieces
1 yellow onion chopped
6 cloves of garlic, minced
4 sprigs of fresh rosemary, finely chopped
6 sage leaves, finely chopped
rotisserie chicken dry rub seasonings
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbs. olive oil
1 cup of dry white wine, Pinot Grigio
2 lemons, cut in half
4 whole carrots, chopped into thick pieces


Pat dry your cut up chicken. Heavily season with your chicken rub of choice and salt and pepper. I make sure I get under the skin and in every nook and cranny for a well seasoned chicken. In a large non stick skillet heat up your olive oil and add your chopped onion, rosemary and sage. Add your seasoned chicken to the medium high temp pan stir well to coat the chicken with the onion and herbs. Let the chicken brown for a good 5 to 10 minutes before turning your chicken pieces. After the chicken is golden brown on both sides (20 min) add your chopped garlic, carrots and wine. Let the chicken cook for another 10 minutes on med low heat or until sauce slightly thickens. Squeeze lemons on top to season right before serving.

red potato mashers

Red Potato Mashers Ingredients

10 to 15 red potatoes washed and cut in half
1 container of chicken broth
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cube of salted butter
salt and pepper to taste


Wash and cut your potatoes in half. Boil your potatoes in your chicken broth. When your potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 mins drain half of the liquid from your potatoes. Add sour cream and butter to your pot. With a potato masher, mash your potatoes until the desired thickness of your potatoes. I like mine a little chunky. Season with salt and pepper. Serve your potatoes with chicken.




  1. This looks delish! What types of seasonings comprise the rotisserie dry rub? Is this something you purchase? if so, can you recommend a brand?

    Thank you,

  2. Dear anonymous, I used for my chicken rub, Emeril's Chicken Rub combined with Lawry's seasoned salt, Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.
    Thanks for the comment.

  3. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance"
    between usability and appearance. I must say you've
    done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick
    for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
