Chicken and Potato Medley

This recipe was inspired by a pantry recipe posted by Purposefully Mom.  I had chicken (that wasn't rotten!!) and lots of potatoes to use up and this looked like just the way to do so.

It was a simple meal to put together (minus cutting those sweet potatoes -- don't forget my tip for making slicing them easier!!) and had great flavor.  It's also gluten-free!

Chicken and Potato Medley - Adapted from Purposefully Mom

3 medium potatoes, cubed
3 medium sweet potatoes, cubed
olive oil
sea salt
Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
1 large chicken breast, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced (I didn't have any, but will add next time)
1 medium purple onion, quartered and "peeled" into layers (I also omitted)

Toss cubed potatoes in a large bowl with olive oil.

Lay out the potatoes on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with sea salt.  {or, you can sprinkle with seasoned salt}

Roast the potatoes at 350 for 1 hour.

When the potatoes are just about done, saute the chicken in a skillet with olive oil and garlic, until no longer pink and juices run clear.  {If using mushrooms and onion, add them at this time and saute until tender}

Scoop the potatoes into the pan and toss around with the chicken.

Season with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning until the desired spiciness is achieved.

  1. This looks really good! Very simple and delicious!

  2. OH YUM! I love the simplicity! I am going to make this one. I really would like some right now!

  3. Just wanted to let you know that we had your Berry Baked Oatmeal this morning, with a drizzle of maple syrup. It was a huge hit! I actually baked it up last night and reheated this morning. So easy and good. Thank you!

    And as is often the case, I started thinking about variations and other possibilities. I went looking for something with pumpkin and found this:

    Can't wait to try it and add yet more variety to the kids' breakfast menus.

  4. I saw this in your meal plan on Monday and happy to have the recipe. Looks healthy!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
