Italian Marinated Chicken Thighs and Crispy Oven Potatoes

Memorial Day is right around the corner and everyone is excited to get outside, get friends together and get grilling! The easiest way to season your grilling goodies is with either a marinade or a rub. And as I continue to post holiday recipes that will be perfect for all your summer outdoor get togethers lets get started with a delicious Italian marinade that starts with a secret ingredient you’ll NEVER GUESS.

I created this recipe for an awesome company, FODY. We actually worked together last summer and little did I know I would need to really get on the bandwagon with a low-fodmap diet because of my SIBO diagnosis. But just like with all of my recipes, just because we need to work within food parameters doesn’t mean we are going to lose flavor, friends! This recipe is awesome. Easy, flavorful and easy on your body to digest. It’s also perfect for holidays and get togethers since you can prep it the day before. Then just throw the chicken on the grill to cook it up!

The potato wedges can be done the day before as well and then just reheated before serving. Or, if you are making the day of they are also super duper easy and will totally satisfy that chewy, garlicky (without garlic!) fry craving.

So start planning those menus and get ready for a stellar weekend of food, fun and friends. Here’s to spending time with our friends and families again!
