Chicken with potatoes (Kota me patates)

Here's a recipe that's quick to prepare but takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to cook. I love this one because I can prepare it in the morning and place it in the fridge and place in the oven ahead of time.

Feeds 4 people

  • 4 large potatoes (cut into mouth size pieces)
  • 6-7 pieces of chicken (you can either cut up a whole chicken or use drumsticks)
  • 1/3 cup virgin oil
  • 1 squeezed lemon
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspon pepper
  • 3/4 tablespoon salt

Place chicken pieces and diced potatoes in a baking tray and distribute evenly.

In a bowl add the tomato paste, oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano and water, mix thoroughly.

Pour mixture over the chicken and potatoes and if required add extra water to almost cover the chicken and potatoes as shown below.

Place in preheated oven at 200 degrees and leave to cook for approximately 1.5 hours or until potatoes are firm. Turn the chicken over after 45 mins so  as not to burn the top of them.
