Recipe: Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast


What You Need:

  • 1 1/2 pounds large Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (5 to 6 thighs)
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 lemons (1 juiced, 1 cut into wedges)
  • 2 large or 3 medium red onions, halved and thinly sliced

How To:

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven. Place a large cast-iron baking dish or a rimmed baking sheet on the rack and preheat to 500 degrees F. Put the potatoes, garlic, olive oil, 1 tablespoon water and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large microwave-safe baking dish and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap, pierce the plastic in a few places with a knife and microwave 8 minutes to partially cook.
Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry and transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle with the paprika, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add 2 tablespoons parsley and the lemon juice; toss to coat. Set aside.
Remove the hot baking dish from the oven; carefully add the potatoes and spread in an even layer. Scatter the onions on top. Roast until the potatoes start to brown, about 12 minutes.
Flip the potatoes and lay the chicken pieces on top, adding any accumulated juices from the bowl; return to the oven and roast until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 12 more minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley. Serve with the lemon wedges.

Restaurant of The Moment: Le Papagayo

1002 N Coast Hwy 101

Encinitas, CA 92024


Le Papagayo is considered to be one of the best restaurants in North County, and with good reason. The Leucadia eatery offers a fusion of Mediterranean and Latin flavors on their menu, as well as live music every night. The restaurant is a great meeting point for friends and family due to its outdoor dog-friendly patio, and art gallery style indoor dining.

The menu consists of food items such as gourmet sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups, fresh fish, prosciutto mac & cheese, and many other delicious items. Our favorite salad is the “Papagayo” which is made up of roasted beets, avocado, tomatoes, and goat cheese on a bed of chopped romaine, and topped with sangria dressing. If you enjoy fish, we highly recommend adding salmon or seared ahi for extra yumminess!
