When it comes to weeknight dinners, what could be more perfect than a dish combining chicken and potatoes? Chicken breasts, thighs (our favorite cut) or even a whole chicken pair perfectly with creamy, dreamy potatoes. And don’t even tell us how well they pair with sweet potatoes! Whichever potato you go with, you can’t go wrong with any of these 28 chicken and potato recipes – they’ll make you feel like a (chicken) winner at dinner time.
The recipes you gravitate towards here will really depend on what you want to be the focal point of your meal. If you want the chicken to be front and center, try our Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs, Apple Cider Glazed Chicken, Garlic Butter Baked Chicken Thighs or Sriracha Chicken ‘maple. They are particularly suitable for meals where it is important that everyone receives their own equal portion of protein (family meals, meal preparation, etc.).
Want the potatoes and chicken evenly distributed in your dish? Try our Japanese Curry, West African Chicken and Peanut Stew, Chicken and Wild Rice Soup or Harvest Chicken Casserole. These recipes combine chicken and potatoes with a myriad of other ingredients and flavors, to great effect.
Are you here for the potatoes and want them to be the star of the show? You must try one of our potato salad or gnocchi recipes. Our Greek Chicken Potato Salad or our Buffalo Chicken Potato Salad are welcome twists on the classic that will be praised at any barbecue table during the summer. During the colder months, our gnocchi and chicken recipes will be the real saviors of your weeknight dinner rotation. Try our Lemon Parmesan Chicken Gnocchi, our Creamy Slow Cooker Gnocchi Soup or our Creamy Skillet Chicken and Gnocchi. Use store-bought potato gnocchi on busy nights, or try making your own (it’s surprisingly easy!).
