Recipe 11: One Pan Chicken and Potatoes
Not going to lie, I feel like I phoned it in with this One Pot Chicken and Potatoes recipe. It looked easy, but not really exciting or different. But since it’s one I’ve never made, it counts as part of the challenge, right? 😉 Sometimes you just need something easy.
I rinsed off the boneless chicken thighs, placed them on the foil lined and parchment covered baking sheet. Sprinkled the chicken with salt and pepper, then added the chopped up potatoes, baby carrots, and garlic cloves.
The recipe called for you to bake it at 375F for an hour and twenty minutes. Say wha? It’s a weeknight…ain’t nobody got time for that. Clearly, I wasn’t paying attention when I picked this one. I bumped the heat up to 400F and cooked it for an hour.
I was running around the house trying to take care of other things, so the above and the final product are the only photos you get. Not that there was a lot to this one, see what I mean by phoning it in?
Meh. This one wasn’t exciting or anything to write home about. It was okay, but we’ve definitely had better. If I’m struggling for options on a weekend, I might pull this one out and try it again.
Amy – 2.75 out of 5 stars. Easy, but it took too long. I think I was thinking I’d pop it in before I went to pick B up from daycare, but that didn’t happen, so dinner got started late. Oops.
Josh – 2.5 out of 5 stars. He agreed, it was pretty basic. Chicken was a little dry (perhaps it really is better to cook this at 375F instead of 400F?) but the potatoes and carrots were good.
