Easy baked chicken recipe, step by step

Cooking baked chicken is very easy. As easy as putting the ingredients together in a tray, season a little, bake and leave inside until it is ready. Well, a little exaggerated but in general terms it's like that.

One of my favorite recipes is to make baked chicken thighs with potatoes. I think it's a complete dish, delicious, easy to make, just needs supervision, while preparing I can do other things (but without neglecting) and can always remove/put ingredients to change the taste.

The good thing about this recipe is that you can put different ingredients and spices to your baked chicken legs. For example, you can add chopped carrots in strips, hot peppers, chopped leeks. You also have the possibility to add other spices such as curry powder and even a splash of white wine cooking.

And of course, if you do not want to put potatoes, then do not do it.

Let your creativity fly and customize this recipe 🙂

how to make baked chicken thighs with potatoes

The amounts are for 2 people, multiply if you want to do more.Do not remove the skin under any circumstances.

  • Chop the onion and pepper julienne.
  • Cut the potatoes into thin wheels.
  • Grease a baking sheet with a little oil and make a bed with the potatoes and on top add the onion and the pepper.
  • Put the pole thighs on a wooden board and season them by both sides with spices. Do it to your liking.
  • You can season the potatoes, onions and peppers a little too .
  • Put the chicken legs in the tray with the skin facing up.
  • Bake and let cook for 30 minutes.
  • Take out the tray, flip the pieces of chicken and put them back in the oven.
  • After about 20 more minutes the chicken should be fully cooked. Check it by pinching it with a long wooden stick or with a knife in the middle, near the bone, if no blood comes out, it's ready.
  • Take the chicken thighs out of the oven and turn them once more so that the skin is up.
  • Now you can raise the temperature a little and let it brown slightly. But you have to be careful, if you neglect you could be burned.
  • When they are golden brown to your liking, turn off the oven and let stand a couple of minutes.

  • (You must bear in mind that many times the ovens do not cook as fast, so you should be careful, not going to be ready before time or still missing more cooking.)

    Tips to prepare some delicious baked chicken legs

    • You can use the thighs and thighs separately or you can buy the whole piece, a whole chicken butt. In my case I like to prepare the whole back.
    • Do not take the skin off the chicken, much of the fun of this dish is to eat the toasted skin 😀
    • If you make them cross cuts, not very deep, to each of the pieces of chicken, you ensure that they are cooked correctly and that the condiments penetrate the meat.
    • Chop the potatoes into thin slices, but not so thin that They seem transparent, because they can burn you.
    • You can use mixed red and green peppers so your dish will look colorful.
    • Some people put a lemon juice on the chicken before cooking it in the oven. I did not do it in this recipe but if you want you can try it.
