This is exactly what this Spanish chicken and potatoes recipe is all about. It takes common ingredients and elevate the taste and flavors to the next level, just like my chicken and potato casserole.
I love the interplay of garlic, red onion, smoked paprika and lemon juice in this recipe. The garlic lends the garlicky aroma to the chicken, while the caramelized red onion adds smokey sweet flavors.
The chicken is moist, with a bit of heat plus a citrusy note from the lemon juice. The perfectly baked baby potatoes complete the dish.
This is an easy one-pot dish that feeds the entire family of 3-4 people. Serve it as is, or with dinner rolls, rice pilaf or simple pasta. This Spanish chicken and potatoes is absolutely scrumptious and you will have to try it. Enjoy!
