My favorite vegetable to serve with this dish is green beans smothered in parmesan cheese. My husband like to grill some asparagus and serve it after drizzling lemon juice on it. There are so many possibilities to have as a side dish, I couldn’t come close to mentioning them all.

            This is a comfort food to bring smiles to everyone’s face. Chicken and potatoes go together as a perfect combination.

This meal is super easy to prepare, prep your chicken, peel and chop your potatoes, season it all and pop into a baking dish.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I freeze the leftovers?

The leftovers, if you have some, will be good in the freezer in an airtight container. They will also be good in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

            Can I add some spice to this dish to create heat?

If your family likes it hot like my husband does, feel free to add some red hot sauce or cayenne pepper.

            What type of potatoes work best in this dish?

I prefer to use Red potatoes and cut them into cubes. Russets could be used also. If you prefer, make the dish with a couple of sweet potatoes along with the Reds.

            Can I add vegetables to the dish, or are they best on the side?

I have made this dish with green beans at one time. That was fantastic! I tend to just roast some vegetables on the side now.
