Let’s make a simple and tasty dinner—oven-baked chicken with potatoes! You won’t believe how easy it is to prepare. Just toss everything into a baking dish, cover it up, and let it cook until it’s fork-tender. And for that extra crunch, we like to broil the chicken for a few minutes.

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons sumac
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 yellow onion chopped in big chunks

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Mix paprika, oregano, sumac, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

  • Remove the foil and place the baking dish under the broiler for 5 minutes, or just until the skin crisps up. Be careful not to let it burn!
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes, garnish with fresh parsley, and enjoy your delicious meal!
