Making Oven Baked Chicken with Party Potatoes

Wash the potatoes and put them in a preheated oven, 200 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes. While the potatoes bake you cut tomatoes and  spring onions, and  fry cut bacon strips crispy. You should now have time to start on the chicken.

When the potatoes are done, slice off 1/3 of the top and scoop out the pulp, making it into a boat-shaped shell. Prepare the pulp like you would mashed potatoes, using  sour cream (3 spoons), milk (3 splashes), and butter (2 spoons) to your taste. Season with salt and pepper. Paprika powder might also give it a nice flavour. Now add a little bit of shredded cheddar to the mix, then gradually the veggies & bacon (*but don’t use it all). Spoon the mashed mixture back into the boats til they are full. Decorate the top  with cheddar, then with veggies and bacon. Pop the potatoes back in the oven for 10-15 minutes so they can heat up again and the cheese becomes melted. When they are done you can have your potato NOMathon!!!

Rinse the chicken breasts and slice of any bits you don’t like. Make holes in the skin with a knife and stuff it with finely cut slices/pieces of garlic cloves, about 6 per chicken breast. Add the chicken breast to an oven proof dish. Now you start on the sauce. Add red pepper and water to a food processor and spin until it is nicely mixed. Add butter to a sauce pan and toss in finely chopped garlic. Add the rest of the ingredients except for parsley, salt and pepper and let boil up. Let boil for five minutes and add parsley, salt and pepper by taste. Pour the sauce over the chicken and kick it in the oven. Takes about 13-15 minutes, it differs from oven to oven. Try to time it so that you put the chicken in at the same time as the oven potatoes.

    • Hi Daphne,

      Thank you for your comment. We were 3 people sharing the results of this recipe, that is we all got 2 potatoes each and 150 grams of chicken each. Depending on how hungry your guests are, I would say to make 2 potatoes per adult, and 100-150 grams of chicken per adult. Let me know how it works out :)
