This dish truly is amazing. The finished chicken was every bit as good as a whole roasted chicken that you would buy at the market for a busy day. The taste was incredible! It reminds me of Sunday dinner at my mother-in-laws house…LOL.
It is a great go-to dish as most of the ingredients you should already have in the house.
One Pot Chicken and Potatoes
• 8 chicken thighs (I’ve been buying the Kirkland ones in a large bag and kept in the freezer)
• 6-8 large potatoes, cut in quarters or halves
• 5-6 carrots, cut in 1-2 inch pieces
• 1 onion, cut in quarters
• 15-20 garlic cloves, whole (Make it easy on yourself, buy the peeled garlic in oil for times like these)
• Kosher salt
• Black ground pepper
• 4 tsp ground pepper or 5 cloves garlic, crushed
• ½ tsp paprika (optional)
• 3-4 Tbsp olive oil.
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with foil or even better, parchment paper.
2. Thoroughly wash the potatoes & carrots with a scrubber and cut them in smaller pieces. Pat dry with a paper towel.
3. Rinse the chicken under running water & also pat dry with paper towel.
4. Add chicken, potatoes and carrots, onion & garlic to the lined baking dish and sprinkle with salt, ground pepper and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil. Toss everything to coat.
5. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes. Check for doneness, if the potatoes and chicken thighs are soft and easily pierced with the fork they are ready.
6. If the chicken and potatoes have not browned up as much as you would like, turn the broil setting on the oven and broil for 5 minutes. Watch carefully, or they will burn.
7. Remove from the oven and serve right away in the baking dish or transfer to a warm serving plate.
