Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Toss the potatoes with the olive oil and salt and roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside.
(Tip: Just place the potatoes in the oven during the last 20 minutes of the chicken’s roasting time. That way the chicken and potatoes come out of the oven at the same time!)
