Sometimes, Friday night dinner needs to be fast. feelgoodfoodie gives us One Pan Chicken and Potatoes, which checks all the boxes. I added onions and carrots just to round it out. The recipe calls for “seven spice,” which you can find if you swipe. Combine the ingredients.
8 chicken thighs and drumsticks
1 ½ pounds baby potatoes halved
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
6 garlic cloves pressed
1 teaspoon 7 spice
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F. Dry the chicken and potatoes well with a paper towel and place on a 9 x 13 oven-safe rimmed baking dish.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, 7 Spice, paprika, salt and pepper. Drizzle over the chicken in the pan. Add the potatoes and use your hands to evenly coat the chicken and potatoes with the sauce.
Bake uncovered for 55-65 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender and the chicken is cooked through. Broil for 3-5 more minutes if needed for a golden brown color.
Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley.
