Chicken Potato Bake

I based this recipe off of

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Yield 4-6 servings

Here’s What You Need:

  • 4 medium potatoes (russet, white, and red are all good choices, no need to peel), cut into approximately ¾ inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 and ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 and ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F/220 degrees C.
  • Place the potato cubes in a large bowl, add the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat.
  • Spray a large (9×13) baking dish with non stick spray. Spread potato mixture in dish and bake about 15 minutes.
  • Remove baking dish from oven and place the chicken pieces in the dish, nestling them down into the potato mixture a bit. If desired, brush the top of each chicken piece with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes, until chicken is cooked and potatoes are browned.
  • Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top, return to the oven and bake for a few more minutes to melt the cheese.

Chefs Notes:
super simple.  I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had marinaded the chicken in some italian dressing or something, but still very good.
