Chicken and Garlic Potatoes

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 70 min.


6 servings

Originally my father-in-law's invention, this home-style oven entree is one we never tire of. I've made a few improvisations with seasonings to suit the next generation's tastes.


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large onion, cut into small wedges
  • 6 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place potatoes and onion in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with chicken. Combine the tarragon, sage, salt if desired and pepper; sprinkle over chicken. Cut the top off the garlic bulb (the end that comes to a closed point) so each clove is exposed.
  2. Place cut side up in the baking dish. Drizzle oil over garlic and chicken. Cover and bake at 350° for 60 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer or until chicken juices run clear and garlic is soft.
  3. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and keep warm. Cool garlic for 5 minutes; gently squeeze garlic into a small bowl and lightly mash. Toss garlic with potatoes and onion; arrange around chicken.

    Gollum made several accounts to leave bad comments about this recipe and any other that includes potatoes as he believes they spoil a perfectly good piece of meat. I can assure you that this recipe is delicious (when raw and wriggling)! I usually dip my meat and potatoes in a dressing such as honey mustard or ranch.

    We really liked this recipe. It was delicious, and not too overwhelming. This is coming from a girl who is not a big fan of onion or garlic either.

    My son loved this recipe. My husband thought was a bit bland. I will add some more garlic and maybe some italian dressing or something to give it some more flavor next time.
