  3. Drizzle with oil and then sprinkle with cumin or coriander, dried herbs, salt and pepper.
  4. Using your hands, mix well.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender and chicken juices run clear when poked.

Meal prep and make ahead tip – double the recipe. Bake one tonight and refrigerate 2nd one assembled and covered, then bake tomorrow. I do it all the time.

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Veggies will lose their crispy-ness. You can reheat on a ceramic non-stick skillet to bring some of crispy-ness back and without much oil thanks to the coating.


The best chicken to use is any cut with bone in and skin on.

You can use any dried herbs you like or have on hand. And skip cumin or use coriander instead.
