Another easy/peasy chicken recipe, constructed from ingredients you probably have hidden in your pantries, cupboards, and fridge.

The nice thing about this dish is that you can prep it the day before, then cover, stick in fridge, and cook it the next day.

Great tasting chicken and taters, from kitchen-to-table in under an hour.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Comfort Essentials: Yummy Chicken/Taters Bake

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. For this recipe, you will need an ovenproof skillet, medium-size baking dish, or rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Place a rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 425f (220c).
  5. THE TATERS
  6. Add the olive oil, oregano, parsley, and salt to a bowl.
  7. Place a pot of lightly salted water over high heat and bring to a rolling boil. While the water is coming up to the boil cut the potato into cubes about 1.5 inches (4cm). Toss into the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Thoroughly drain, and then toss with the oil and spices.
  9. THE CHICKEN
  10. Add all of the spice ingredients to a bowl and mix to combine.
  11. Place the chicken into an ovenproof skillet baking dish, or baking sheet, drizzle on the spice ingredients, and rub it into the chicken. Then, add the taters.
  12. As you can see from the photo, I like to sprinkle on a bit of additional smoked paprika and a touch of salt… up to you.
  13. Place in the preheated oven and cook until the skin on the chicken is crispy, and the internal temperature (instant-read thermometer) reads 165f (75c), about 45 – 50 minutes.
  14. PLATE/PRESENT
  15. Serve with a nice side salad and some homemade bread. Enjoy.
  16. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
