Rotisserie Chicken Potatoes

On the streets of Paris, rotisserie chicken vendors often roast potatoes under the roasting chicken. The potatoes get bathed in delicious chicken drippings. Anyone know a place in Boston that does this kind of thing?

    buy chicken fat at the Butcherie - toss blanched potatoes in melted chicken fat, a bit of grapeseed oil, and sea salt - roast at high heat (about 425) - best potatoes ever

      Man, those potatoes make me drool. I remember them from Parisian markets. When i finally tasted them they were good but nothing could have lived up to expectation. Haven't seen them here.

        I don't usually like to direct people to recipes when they ask for a restaurant dish, but if you can't find this out Cooks Illustrated has a delicious High Roasted Butterflied Chicken recipe that has you cook the chicken at a high temp on a rack over sliced potatoes. I like to add onions to the potatoes and cook them for a few extra minutes after I take out the chicken. Really delicious. You have to be a member to get the recipe on site, but you can find it other places if you do a search.

          Greek places should make their potatoes more confit style, which is akin to what you're looking for. Look for Greek roasted potatoes. They are typically cooked in a fat and should be lemony as well.
