INGREDIENTS

  • 4 potatoes medium-sized, cut into 3/4″ cube (russet, white, and red are all good choices, no need to peel)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken (I like to use thighs)
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parsley (optional, freshly chopped)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F/220 degrees C.
  • Place the potato cubes in a large bowl, add the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat.
  • Spray a large (9×13) baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Spread potato mixture in dish and bake about 15 minutes.
  • Remove baking dish from oven and place the chicken pieces in the dish, nestling them down into the potato mixture a bit.
  • If desired, brush the top of each chicken piece with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes, until chicken is cooked and potatoes are browned.
  • Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top, return to the oven and bake for a few more minutes to melt the cheese.
  • When serving, sprinkle chopped parsley on top (if desired).
