tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once to flatten.

Roast the carrots & chicken:
2 Roast the carrots & chicken:

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place the carrot pieces on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Place on the other side of the sheet pan. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork and the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven. Transfer the roasted chicken to a cutting board.

3 Cook & mash the potatoes:

While the chicken and carrots roast, add the diced potatoes and smashed garlic to the pot of boiling water. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat; drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the yogurt and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm.
