Baked Potato with Button Mushrooms

Had leftovers potatoes recently and decided to do something different with my potatoes, and this came to mind - baked potatoes with button mushrooms. It is a simple side dish and I simply love it because it is so easy to make and it is tasty as well.
What you need is 2 medium sized potatoes, 1 yellow onions, button mushrooms, rosemary,salt, black pepper and Lingham's chili sauce. Basically cut the potatoes to cubes and marinate them with salt, black pepper and 2 tablespoon of Lingham's chili sauce. Next slice the yellow onions and spread it on porcelain dish plate (oven proof). Oops, not to forget add some olive oil around the dish plate so that you do not have the onions and potatoes sticking on it later. Slice the button mushrooms and spread over the onions. Lastly pour the marinated cubes potatoes in and sprinkle with rosemary herbs. Put the dish into the preheated oven and bake for 20-30mins for 180'C.
Have fun trying it. :)
