Chicken and Potatoes in the Oven
This is a very simple recipe and it's a hit every time with my family.
10 - 12 pieces chicken (thighs and/or drumsticks)
2 -3 large potatoes cut into chunks
olive oil (about two tablespoons)
lemon juice (about two tablespoons)
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take washed chicken pieces and place in a large baking pan. You can leave the skin on or take it off, it is your preference. I usually leave the skin on.
Place potato chunks in the pan.
Drizzle olive oil all over chicken and potatoes.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and just a touch of cinnamon powder.
Add lemon juice and toss to coat chicken pieces and potato chunks with spices, oil and lemon.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place in heated oven.
Cook the chicken and potatoes covered for one hour at 450 on the bottom rack of the oven.
Remove foil and place in oven for 15 minutes until chicken has browned and potatoes start to crisp up. Cook for another 15 minutes until the other side of the chicken pieces also brown.
Remove from oven. Chicken should be cooked very well and just coming off the bone. Potatoes should be crisp on the outside but soft inside.
Serve with a nice salad. Enjoy!!!
