Baked Chicken and Creamy Potatoes

Whenever I cook chicken it’s always the dark meats such as the thigh and leg that I like best. It’s much more forgiving and less likely to dry out than the breast. I also think that it has a lot more flavour. As Summer looses its shine and Autumn raises its head baked cooking is what I do more of.  Here is a baked chicken one-pot wonder for you to tuck into. The recipe uses chicken leg quarters on a bed of delicious, creamy and garlicky potatoes.

  • Step 4 Layer equal quantities of potatoes, onions and garlic into each dish. Mix the cream and stock together and, again, pour equal amounts into each dish.
