Baby Potatoes in a Creamy Garlic Pepper Sauce

Recently, I discovered these potatoes that I chose as a side dish with my roasted chicken dinner from Fresh Market. They were so good but loaded with calories. I couldn’t help but buy them every week for the entire month of December. Enough was enough I thought, I had to make my own lighter version at home. I was tired of feeling guilty every time I ate them.

I don’t know exactly what was in the potatoes that I purchased at the market, but the flavor was there, if not better. At least I know that my potatoes aren’t made with heavy whipping cream. Plus, my this recipe is gluten and guilt free.
