Roasted Chicken And Potatoes

This roasted chicken and potatoes dish is perfect for a Sunday family meal. Easy to make, delicious and perfect to feed a crowd.


Roasted Chicken And Potatoes- classic and comforting

This recipe comes from my family. As far as I remember, this dish was served by my grandmother on a Sunday family meal, together with a good soup and a great simple dessert, like crepes or doughnuts made from scratch.

Relatively cheap and easy to put together, this dish looks beautiful on the table, and it is also delicious. It can be done on any day of the week, but it is more awesome over the weekend!

You can enjoy it with a glass of your favorite white wine and share it with your favorite people in your life.

This dish is definitely part of my comfort food list. It is easy to put together and incredibly simple.

When you bake chicken and potatoes together on the same baking sheet, you allow the potatoes to absorb the chicken flavors, making them tasty and delicious.

Chicken is one of these options that can take you out of a dilemma when you need to cook dinner and there is no inspiration.

Are you looking for something delicious, cheap, and easy to make? This recipe is your solution. 

You can use any chicken parts you like. I suggest using chicken with the bone and the skin still attached to it.

It has more flavor, and it is juicier and excellent with potatoes. You can also play with the spices and add anything you like.

Boneless, skinless chicken breast is not good enough because it will dry out during baking. Besides that, regular chicken legs and thighs are cheaper.

For chicken breast ideas, you can try to make Easy Chicken breast schnitzel.

This roasted chicken and potatoes recipe also gives you the main dish and a side dish all in one, with very little work to do and just one baking sheet to clean.

The oven will do all the work, and the house will smell like heaven!

What kind of ingredients you need for the chicken and potatoes dish:

I love good old traditional recipes. You know, something you can find in the Betty Crocker cookbook.
