It is no secret that I over complicate things.
Call it a gift.
I had some chicken and potatoes that I needed to use, and my sister sent me this recipe, but not exactly what I am going to share with you today.
It called for bone in chicken with the skin. I had boneless, skinless chicken thighs, so I knew that they wouldn't cook for as long and at the temperature that the potatoes would.
I decided to cook the potatoes in the oven and the chicken in a skillet, and just prepare them the same.
You would think it would work out, right?
If you make this, it can easily all be seasoned together, thrown in a pan, and baked together if your chicken is bony and skinny.
I am SO funny.
Also, you MUST add Lawry's seasoning. When we were eating, it tasted lovely, but it was missing something.
Scott (of course) suggested Lawry's, and when he went back for seconds, he added it, and it was indeed missing the awesome sauce. Well, the awesome seasoning.
What I used:
5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
4 small white potatoes
A handful of diced onion
What I did:
Turn on the oven to 425°.
Wash and dry the potatoes, cut them into small quarters, then throw this many diced onions in there:
Then add in a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic, Kosher salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano.
Then........gasp......mix it all together with your hands.
Lay it out on a pan, and stick it in the oven.
Now....it said to cook on 425° for 45 minutes.
I checked at 30 minutes.....
The garlic and onion were burned to a crisp. The potatoes were perfect.
I coated the chicken thighs in olive oil, s&p, paprika, oregano. DON'T FORGET THE LAWRY'S!!!
I cooked them in a skillet on med-high til the salmonella was gone.
I turned the oven back on to 350°, placed the cooked chicken and potatoes in (another) pan, drizzled a tad bit more olive oil and paprika, and stuck them in the oven for 15 minutes.
I mainly did this because Scott got off later than usual, and I wanted everything to be warm, and to give the potatoes a little more "pop".
