Mama Pirri's Italian Marinated Chicken with Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

Italian Marinated Chicken
with Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

Mama Pirri strikes again!

My hubby, Dan, and I have both been working 7 days a week.  Mama Pirri to the rescue!  Not only did she help me by decorating my tree, but she had dinner waiting.  

These next two weeks are all about simple dishes that you can make in a flash.   Sometimes we "foodies" overlook the the obvious; we fail to take ingredients that we already have around the house and make a delicious and easy weeknight - or weekend - meal.  Mama Pirri is a master of doing just that.

Here are her recipes:

Mama Pirri's Italian Marinated Chicken

4 plump Chicken Thighs, skin on
3/4 cup Wishbone ® Italian Dressing*
1 1/2 cup Italian Seasoned Breadcrumbs
1/8 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Other:  Cooking Spray

For the Potatoes:

5 - 6 Red Potatoes, quartered
Cooking Spray
Sea Salt, to taste
Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
1/8 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Marinate the chicken overnight in the Italian dressing.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Important:  DO NOT pat the chicken dry. 

Roll chicken in breadcrumbs. 

Spray with cooking spray.  Cover baking pan with tin foil.  Bake for one hour.

Uncover chicken.  Top with Parmesan cheese.  Continue to bake for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes until chicken is crispy.

For the potatoes:  Slice into quarters and spray with cooking spray.   Sprinkle with remaining ingredients and bake, uncovered, for about an hour until potatoes are brown and crispy on the outside but creamy on the inside.

Serve with roasted asparagus.
