  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a large baking dish; pour the water into the bottom of the dish. Arrange the potatoes around and over the chicken pieces. Drizzle the olive oil over the mixture; season with the rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  3. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).

As people have said, I used chicken broth in place of water & I made a delicious gravy with the drippings & more broth. Also added carrots. This is a keeper :).

This was just okay. The chicken didn't brown up and get crispy and the amount of liquid was a little too much. Overall it was kinda bland, which is surprising considering I used chicken stock in...

Excellent! I used the juice to make gravy.
