I love this recipe for baked chicken with potatoes and onions. It is very easy to do and does not require much effort. But without a doubt, best of all, is how good it is. What we are going to do is to cook this bird with its garnish, all at once, causing its own juices to mix with this garnish and obtaining a spectacular recipe.
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE:
1 whole chicken or 4 full thighs (hindquarters)
4 medium potatoes
4 medium onions
salt and pepper
HOW TO MAKE OVEN CHICKEN WITH POTATOES AND ONION:
1.- We start peeling the potatoes. Once peeled, we cut them into thin slices, no more than 1 centimeter thick. Then, we put them as a base on a baking sheet. We also peel the onions and cut them into thin strips. We put it on the potato and pepper everything.
2.- Next we put the thighs on top of the potatoes and the onion. We add a glass of water and a dash of olive oil to everything. This will make it more juicy while baking. We ensure that at the bottom of the fountain, there is always moisture. So the garnish is not going to burn. We season and add a good pinch of dried thyme to each thigh (or the whole chicken, if you have chosen the complete piece)
3.- We put the chicken in the oven at 220ºC if you use thighs. heat up and down. Let bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown. If you use a whole chicken, we bake at 190ºC.
4.- When it is very golden, we take the tray out of the oven, we turn the pieces. Thus, the other side will be cooked.
5.- Immediately afterwards, we put the tray back into the oven. Finally we let cook approximately the same time, until everything is well cooked.
Baked chicken with potatoes and onion ready! As a result of putting the garnish down completely, we will take advantage of the juices that the chicken releases during baking. These will be mixed with the garnish and we will have an explosive mixture of flavors! Test it!
