One Pan Baked Chicken and Potatoes

A baking pan with baked chicken and potatoes

This one pan baked chicken and potatoes is a great midweek meal to add to your rotation .

No marinate, no fancy ingredients, it’s a one pan, simple meal that is ready in an hour. Just toss the chicken thighs, baby potatoes, and chopped onion with olive oil, garlic, thyme, dried oregano, paprika, salt and pepper, then pop it in the oven. The chicken skin turns very crispy, while the meat stays juicy

Serve the baked chicken and potatoes with vegetables or with a salad to make it a complete meal.

I made this  recipe with chicken thighs, you can replace them with chicken breasts, drumsticks or with a combination of the three.  If you are using other chicken cuts,  you may have to adjust the cooking time, as needed.

I used salt, pepper, paprika, dried oregano, and thyme but you can change them around to suit your preferences.

I’d gladly eat this baked chicken and potatoes for dinner every day of the week – it’s so delicious, quick and easy!

I’d love to hear what you think if you give it a try! Leave a comment and don’t forget to take a picture and share it on my Facebook page or tag it #aseasyasapplepie on Instagram!
