Petite Potatoes

I know. I'm a terrible blogger. Leaving you hanging for weeks on end with no explanation. Well, really there is none. Life's just busy. But that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking. Just not blogging. Like I said. 

So a few weeks ago I found a ton of amazing potatoes at the Athens Farmers Market. They came in all shapes, colors and sizes but what I thoughts sounded most delicious was the golden mini potatoes. They're sweet and buttery and pretty much impossible to cook incorrectly. My dad suggested the following preparation. I took a few liberties but I think he should still get credit :)

What You'll Need:
1-1.5 pounds petite potatoes, halved
1 bell pepper, diced
1 sweet onion, diced
Oregano, thyme, marjoram, garlic powder*
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk

*This is basically greek seasoning

What to Do:
Saute the pepper and onion in a dutch oven until the onions turn clear. Remove them from the pot and set aside. Add the potatoes to the pot along with the water, salt and pepper. Close the lid and steam the potatoes over medium high heat for about 20 minutes or until tender. 

Remove the lid and add the pepper and onion back to the pot along with the milk and spices.   Turn the heat down to medium and reduce the milk, stirring occasionally until it forms a creamy sauce. Add grilled chicken to make a complete meal.
