Peel and slice the potatoes into ¾”-1” slices. Then put in a medium bowl.
Cover your sliced potatoes with melted butter, olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir.
Lay the potatoes flat, in a single layer, on a metal baking dish. Do not use a glass baking dish, as pouring the chicken broth into the hot pan could resulting in the glass cracking.
Bake in a 500 degree pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven and flip each potato. Bake for another 15 minutes, until the other side of the potato is golden brown.
Add the chicken broth and chopped garlic. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.
