Almost Grilled Chicken

Grilling during the week is tough, especially when we want to eat with the kids and get them showered and ready for bed at a decent hour. With fresh chicken in the fridge and a major craving for the grilled chicken we made a couple of weeks ago, I decided to use the leftover spice rub and throw it in the oven with some potato wedges. I really watched this chicken and raised and lowered the oven temp a few times, covered and uncovered the pan and even added a little water so the potatoes could steam a bit. As much as I was looking forward to this chicken, raw potatoes and overdone chicken was not going to happen. In the end, the chicken was perfectly done, the potatoes were to die for and I managed to get the table cleaned off and set *before* Danny came home so that we could sit down for a nice dinner.

For dessert and a pre-hockey snack for Danny, I made baked peaches. I wont go into why I didn't make a cobbler, a crumble, or something that may have looked more delectable.... Appearance aside, these peaches were the perfect ending to a pretty hearty meal.
