I love using baby red potatoes as a quick side dish recipe as you don’t have to peel these tiny potatoes which makes for quick prep time and this recipe doesn’t call for any butter or cream so the potatoes aren’t loaded with calories.   The secret to this recipe is boiling the potatoes in chicken stock which I think adds extra flavor to the potatoes.  Give them a try and let me know what you think!
