chicken with potato recipe


I think we can all agree that chicken and potatoes go together like peanut butter & jelly or burgers & fries. At my house, when grilled chicken is on the menu, we almost always serve it with a side of potatoes.

In this tasty chicken and potato casserole, they are combined into one tasty main dish. And when you coat them with flavorful seasonings, then top them off with bacon and cheese, you have a dinner that is guaranteed to bring smiles to the table!

We especially love this chicken dish during the cold weather months. It warms up the kitchen and smells amazing as it bakes. Not to mention how hearty and comforting it is after a long cold day.

You will love how easy this casserole is to prepare. Just chop up your chicken and potatoes, then coat them with a simple seasoning. Dinner is in the oven in about fifteen minutes!


Ingredients needed:

  • boneless, skinless chicken breast (You could use boneless, skinless thighs if you prefer.)
  • potatoes (I’ve used both russet and red potatoes with great results. You can either peel them or leave the skin on.)
  • olive oil
  • smoked paprika (Smoked paprika adds a wonderful flavor, but you can substitute regular paprika in a pinch.)
  • garlic powder (You can use minced garlic instead, but I find that garlic powder coats the chicken and potatoes more evenly.)
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • cheddar cheese (or another cheese if you prefer)
  • bacon (I’ve used both kinds of bacon I’ve cooked at home, and the pre-cooked bacon bits from Costco. Both work well, but the pre-cooked bacon saves a lot of time!)
  • green onions
  1. PREP WORK: Cook and crumble the bacon (or use precooked bacon bits). Spray a 9×13″ baking dish with cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    Dice the potatoes and chicken. I like to dice the potatoes into smaller chunks because they take longer to cook than the chicken. Smaller pieces help them cook faster so the chicken isn’t overdone.
  2. COAT: Place the cubed chicken and potatoes in a large bowl. Whisk together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over the chicken and potatoes, and stir till well coated.

  3. BAKE: Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake uncovered at 400 for 50-55 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes or so, until potatoes are tender.
  4. GARNISH: Remove from the oven. Add the cheese, bacon, and green onion to the top of the cooked dish. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for another five minutes or until cheese is melted.


Leftovers will store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days if you cover them well or place in an airtight container. They are so good for lunch the next day! We just pop individual servings into the microwave for 1-2 minutes.


  • Spice things up by adding some red pepper flakes or hot sauce to the chicken potato mixture. You could even top the casserole with pepper jack cheese.
  • Instead of sprinkling with sliced green peppers, you can use diced onion or even dry minced onion in the casserole. Just stir them in with the chicken and potatoes.

Chinese-Style Tender Braised Chicken with Potatoes

Let me just say this. I am such a fan of gravy and sauces that I often look to Cantonese food for a lot of inspiration in my cooking.

All is well because my hubby and I both happen to love Cantonese cuisine. So in that way, our palettes are congruent which makes my task of preparing our family meals so much easier.

About Cantonese braised chicken

Now, you probably have some impression of how famous the Cantonese are for their food. Travel to Hong Kong, and nearby Guangzhou, and you’ll be totally wowed by the amazing and tantalizing smorgasbord of Canton cuisine.

Not only for preparing elegant and exquisite dishes fit for banquets and feasts, but also for a great variety of simple, hearty home-cooked meals. And this braised chicken with potatoes is one such homey dish.

Chinese-style tender braised chicken with potatoes

Every Chinese family has their cherished recipes for braised chicken. In fact, you won’t usually find this on a typical Chinese restaurant menu. That’s why we treasure the instances, and memories of when our mothers cooked this for us with love and dedication.

Now, this chicken with potatoes dish has delicate but distinct flavors. How it tastes is ultimately defined by the combination of seasonings used.

However, it’s easy to go overboard with seasonings, especially the sauces and that’s not ideal. Otherwise, the whole dish will lose the little nuances of flavor and will taste overwhelmingly of the sauce.

Ingredients for the dish

The great thing about this is that it takes a pretty short list of ingredients to cook up this hearty wholesome dish. You’re likely to have all of this in your pantry right now. So here’s what we will need:

  • chicken
  • potatoes
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • spring onions
  • Asian sauces – oyster sauce, light soy sauce, and dark soy sauce
  • Chinese wine
  • sesame oil

Tips on chicken cuts and potato variety

  • Choose the mix of chicken cuts you like. My favorite options for braising are either a whole chicken cut-up, or tastier cuts like chicken thighs, drumsticks, and of course, chicken wings. Who doesn’t love wings, right?
  • Skin-on is tastier than skin-off. If you want more flavor, skin-on chicken parts are better as the oils will infuse with the braising sauce.
  • Granola potatoes are, in my humble opinion, the best variety to use for braising. But, basically, any waxy white or yellow potatoes that hold their shape well when boiled. Other suitable options are Yukon Gold and Fingerling potatoes.

These are just my suggestions, of course, and nothing should stop you from enjoying this dish with the chicken cuts and potatoes you love to eat. So, if you’re all for skinless breast meat and potatoes mashed and literally dissolved in your gravy, then enjoy!
