Tips How to Make Chicken & Potatoes in the Oven:

  • Your oven and the size of the chicken drumsticks being used along with potato sizes will alter the cooking time of the dish.
    • Start checking for readiness at 45 minutes into baking. Continue baking, as needed until chicken is completely cooked and potatoes are easily pierced with a knife.
  • Before serving, pour the juices from the bottom of the pan over everything (or simply gently toss).
  • If you have time to season the chicken a few hours in advance (or in the morning), it will give the seasoning enough time to penetrate deeper into the chicken and will taste even better.
    • Combine the ingredients for the seasoning and very lightly season the chicken in a plastic bag and keep it refrigerated. Then continue with the recipe per instructions.
  • Enjoy the meal with your favorite dip: ketchup, Sriracha, or barbecue sauce.

Yes, you can substitute the chicken drumsticks for a different cut of chicken.

  • When using boneless/skinless thighs, the cooking time will be less than the drumsticks (check the readiness of chicken with a cooking thermometer, it should read 165°F).
  • If you will be substituting with bone-in/skin-on thighs, the cooking time will depend on the size of the chicken pieces.
