Oven-Baked Chicken with Potatoes
Serves 3
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
6 chicken drumsticks
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes
In a small bowl, mix the seasoning (½ tsp salt, ½ tsp onion powder, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp dried oregano, ½ tsp dried thyme, ¼ tsp smoked paprika, and ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper). Add 2 tbsp olive oil and mix well.
Pat dry chicken drumsticks and transfer to a gallon size zip-lock bag. Pour in the seasoning mixture, close the bag, and shake it to evenly distribute the seasoning.
Marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400F.
Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces and put into a 9×13-inch baking dish. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt to your taste. Place the chicken drumsticks on top of the potatoes.
Bake at 400F for about 40-50 minutes or until the chicken internal temperature reaches at least 165-170F and the potatoes are cooked through and tender. Enjoy!
