One Pot Paprika Chicken with Potatoes

I’m back! Our honeymoon was fantastic. We did, saw, and ate so much! It was my second time to Rome and Florence and Kramer’s first, so it was fun for me to experience it all again (with some new stuff sprinkled in) and Kramer was astounded by everything we took in. We definitely had an exhausting honeymoon; up early to avoid long lines at the big attractions, lots of walking, etc. but it was worth it and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We ate so much good food, too, it was nuts! I miss all of the pasta and pizza and paninis already. I will post some photos of the food we ate when I get a chance.

I have even more exciting news, too – we’re moving to New York! We leave on February 1st and ever since we got back from Rome we’ve been packing like crazy and trying to figure out what to do with all of our things. It’s very stressful but we’re also very excited! Our house is empty right now, as we sold or gave away our dining table, one of our couches, a desk, a bunch of chairs, and a grill. We’ll be essentially camping out in our home by Friday, but it’s worth it!

Anyway, I made this dish before we left for Rome and Kramer and I were big, big fans of it. It’s very simple and only requires one pot to make. The potatoes are flavorful and tender and the chicken is perfectly cooked and moist. The onions and bell peppers add some nice flavor and texture, too. Overall, a perfect weeknight meal that won’t test the palates of picky eaters; it’s just something everything is sure to love!

Your ingredients.

One Pot Paprika Chicken with Potatoes
Create the marinade by combining 1 tablespoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper, and 1 teaspoon of dried thyme.

Rub the marinade over your chicken and set aside. You can refrigerate the chicken for a few hours if you have time, but I didn’t.

Slice your potatoes very thinly and dice your onion and bell pepper, then toss them with two minced cloves of garlic and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Spray a large pot, dutch oven, or deep-sided skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium heat (you can also use a few teaspoons of olive oil). Add the potatoes to the pot and cook for 5 minutes or so, stirring often.

    Moving to a big city is exciting.
    I learned to appreciate one pot cooking because in my tiny San Francisco apartment, there is no dishwasher.
    Thanks for the great recipe.

    Me and my husband have made this three times already — it’s going into our regular rotation! It’s great because I almost always have the ingredients on hand, but it’s tasty and filling and interesting. Usually I tweak a recipe a little bit after making it, but this one really needs no changes!

    Wow! I made this last night and I love it, I think I could eat it every day! It was so home cooking feeling and easy peasy! I’m looking forward to my leftovers today:) Thanks for sharing, this will definitely being taking a place in our rotation.

    This might sound a little ridiculous, but I’d like to make this recipe but I don’t have access to chicken broth in this country (and don’t really have the opportunity to make my own at the moment) but I do have white wine… would that be a nasty substitute? I know they’re used similarly in a lot of recipes but I’m not sure if it would be gross to do so here, please help me out!
