Herb-Roasted Chicken With Potatoes and Peas
1 1/2 pounds new potatoes (about 15), halved or quartered if large
3 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and black pepper
8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 2 1/2 pounds total)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges for serving
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1.Heat oven to 450° F with a rack in the highest position. Toss the potatoes with the oil and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Season the chicken with the caraway seeds, mustard, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
2.Nestle the chicken skin-side up in the potatoes and roast, tossing the potatoes once, until the potatoes are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in each thigh registers 165º F, 25 to 30 minutes.
3.Add the peas to the chicken and potatoes and continue to roast until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Drizzle with the lemon juice.
4.Sprinkle with the dill and serve with the lemon wedges.
