Lebanese Chicken and Potato Bake

March 18, 2020

One of my favourites, “Djej W Batata” this recipe is ridiculously easy and worth it’s baking time. If you want to add an extra flavor you can pre fry the potatoes. Also if you’re not counting calories its really good if you eat it with bread.

    Hi, the recipe doesn’t say how to use the seven spices. Is it part of the initial chicken marinade?

    H8. What if the potato turns out uncooked?

      if your potatoes are uncooked you can pre bake them in a pan and then assemble and bake the whole dish

    Do you cook/bake the potatoes first alone in the oven? Then add then to the chicken to cook together?
