|Baked Chicken with Garlic Potatoes|
Traditionally seasoned chicken baked over chunky-cut potatoes. The chicken becomes perfectly tender with a crispy skin. Drippings brown the potatoes underneath, elevating them from a basic staple to restaurant-worthy. No one needs to know you can prep this one-dish wonder in minutes.
2 lbs (about 4 pieces) organic chicken thighs
5 medium potatoes
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme*
Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease a baking dish coconut oil or olive oil.
Place the chicken thighs over top of the potatoes. If the thighs are folded in the package, as they often are, unfold them so as many of the potatoes are covered as possible. Sprinkle the parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme over the chicken.
Cover with foil and bake for an hour. Look busy. After an hour, uncover and continue to bake for another fifteen minutes, until the potatoes are cooked and juices from the chicken run clear. Before serving, sprinkle a bit of parsley over the potatoes.
*Many thanks to Simon and Garfunkel for the little tune I get in my head whenever I season poultry.
