Not Just For My Chef!

Garlic Chicken And Potatoes

This garlic chicken and potatoes recipe was inspired by my friend. He sent me one of his favorites.

I thought this recipe was so simple I had to share it with you. Just chicken, some potatoes and one baking dish.

You never know what you have in your house until you open your fridge and see what you have. You just need to be creative. So I took my friends recipe and added a few other little ingredients to spice things up my own way.

Ingredients (Serves 2 potatoes):

1 lb. chicken breasts
4 large potatoes
1 tbsp butter
1 medium onion
1 mushroom
¼ cup of olive oil
2 tbsp BBQ sauce
1½ tsp Vegeta seasoning
1 tbsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 chopped green onion (optional)
100 g of grated cheese
dried or fresh parsley

Potatoes For Garlic Chicken


Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Brush a large baking dish with melted butter.

If you like you can lightly line the dish with bread crumbs to prevent everything from sticking to the pan.

Peel and rinse the onion. Dice into small pieces. Wash and dry the mushroom. Cut into slices.

Sliced Mushrooms for Chicken and Potatoes

Saute the onions first over low to medium heat so that they will caramelize. Then add the sliced mushroom. Continue to saute for about five minutes. Set aside when done.

In large bowl mix together the oil, BBQ sauce, Vegeta, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.

Mixing with BBQ Sauce

Peel and rinse the potatoes. Cut into cubes. Wash and dry the chicken breasts. Cut into small cube-like pieces.

Also here: if you’re using a chopped green onion, now is the time to add it!

Bake everything for 55-60 minutes. This is important: check often and stir the ingredients in the baking dish every 10 to 20 minutes until everything is thoroughly cooked. Crispy and golden as always!

Once the chicken is cooked, remove from oven and top with cheese and a little parsley.

Place everything back in the oven for just five minutes until the cheese is melted. The melted cheese makes and keeps this garlic chicken and potatoes recipe quite uniform and consistent.
