Tips & Tricks:

  • Chicken Thighs: Buy bone-in skin-on chicken thighs and chicken drumsticks. I used about 4 lbs of chicken in my recipe.
  • Crispy & moist chicken: make sure to bring the chicken to room temperature before cooking and pat the chicken dry before prepping. This will result in crispy skin and moist tender chicken.
  • Potatoes: I used 4 potatoes in this recipe, but use a potato per person you’re serving
  • Spices: This blend of spices is amazingly delicious! My recipe calls for no salt because the seasoing blends I added contain salt.
