1. To make the garlic butter chicken with potatoes: In a large bowl, combine the chicken strips with low-sodium soy sauce, olive oil, pepper, and hot sauce. Set aside to marinate while you cook the potatoes.

2. Parboil the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8 minutes. This will accelerate cooking time in the skillet and ensure a nice golden crust on the potatoes.

3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. When butter is melted, add drained potatoes. Cook potatoes for about 4 minutes, stir and cook an additional 4-5 minutes until the potatoes are golden and fork-tender. Transfer sauteed potatoes to a plate and set aside.

4. Keep the same skillet over medium heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Lay the chicken strips in one layer in the skillet, keeping the drained marinade for later. Add garlic and red chili pepper flakes to the chicken. Cook chicken strips on each side for 1 minute each until nicely browned – adjust timing depending on how you like your grilled chicken.

5. Stir in the reserved marinade and cook with chicken until the marinade is cooked. Add the fresh herbs and give a quick stir. Then add the sauteed potatoes back to the pan and heat through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.

6. Remove from heat and serve immediately your Garlic Butter Chicken with sauteed Potatoes, garnished with more crushed chili pepper, fresh herbs, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese over the chicken and potatoes if you like. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the chicken and potatoes recipe

  • To make the strips: cut chicken breasts in half, then slice lengthwise to avoid cutting across the fiber. Cutting across the fiber can result in moisture loss when cooking the chicken. You want your chicken golden brown, but not dried up.
  • Do not overcrowd the pan when cooking the chicken strips, otherwise you’ll end up with steamed chicken instead of having this delicious crisp-golden sear on the meat. Proceed in batches if necessary, setting cooked chicken aside; you will reheat all of it together with potatoes at the end.
  • If you like a sauce with your chicken and potatoes, try this: 1 tablespoon mayo + 1 tablespoon Sriracha, it will spices things up and it’s delicious!

How to keep the chicken and potatoes leftovers

Keep any chicken and potatoes leftovers in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat in a skillet with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.

    So good! One of our favorites! It’s so much more flavorful with added onion and mushrooms!

    Amazing! Thank you!

    I am going to try Darren's suggestion. It was a bit salty for our taste.

  • Darren

    2023-10-19 18:52:55

    Cut soy in half, too much salt. Topped up with chicken stock. Added 1 tsp of honey to balance the heat from Sriracha and pepper flakes. Also blanched Brussel sprouts with the spuds. Cooked them all the same. Amazing dish but cut back on the soy!

  • Denise

    2023-10-11 16:52:33

    This recipe is fantastic! I used a combination of soy sauce and Maggi sauce. Delish! Also used red potatoes.THANK YOU!

    Very easy to make and super tasty!

    Very tasty. Whole family liked even the picky 6yr old grandbaby.

    Fantastic recipe! The whole family enjoyed.

  • JHG

    2023-04-30 20:25:55

    This is so good, its addictive flavor is amazing. It’s even good when it cools off just a bit.. Question: Has anyone tried using small sweet potatoes? I’m wondering if the sweet can balance the richness. I love this recipe!!

  • John

    2023-04-04 10:37:52

    I made it last night and it turned out great. I added sliced onions to the pan just before returning the chicken to the pan then garnished with sliced green onions when I served it right in the pan. They said it's a keeper.

  • Judy

    2023-02-26 16:17:58

    I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. This one will go into my rotation.

  • Suzanna

    2023-02-18 22:54:46

    Easy and delicious! My whole family enjoyed it!

  • shelley

    2023-02-01 19:32:23

    Very salty even with lo sodium soy and I didn't even use all of it. Otherwise, very nice

  • S.N.

    2023-01-30 19:49:31

    Turned out great for a quick meal! I didn't have hot sauce, so I used a 1/4 tsp of gochujang. I added a sprinkle of sugar to cut down on the salt.

  • Amy

    2023-01-04 15:44:44

    This was easy to make and it tasted delicious. I always buy low sodium soy sauce, and I didn't think it was salty.

  • sarah

    I make the chicken all the time - we use cut thighs, breasts, and tenderloins, all to great effect. I'm also dairy free as I'm nursing a baby with CMPA, so I make this with a vegan butter-shaped fat. I usually cut the chicken in chunks and sorta stir fry it, adding broccoli or green beans. I don't think the potatoes are very successful here. I just parboil them and then put them on a parchment lined tray at 425° with some oil and seasonings (kosher Ranch powder suits my dietary things) and roast them crisp while I'm stir frying the chicken. Thanks for this amazing sauce and marinade recipe!

  • Marissa

    2022-09-06 18:23:56

    Amazing so flavorful. Don’t add extra salt due to the soy sauce though!

    Delicious but VERY salty and this is coming from someone who salts everything! I will make it again with low sodium soy sauce and more hot sauce.

  • Craig

    2022-06-06 19:17:42

    I made this for dinner this evening. I had lots of fresh herbs in the garden so this was the perfect dish. I was concerned that it might have no flavor. I was so pleasantly. I was so wrong, it was so easy and so delicious. I'll definitely be making this often!

  • Tricia

    2022-05-03 21:19:23

    Great flavor, but way too salty even with low sodium soy sauce.

  • Jacqueline

    2022-03-31 17:30:15

    I love this recipe! I tend to make a bit more marinade just for the flavor. Something I did since i'm tracking calories is I subbed half the potatoes for carrots. Still starchy but a few less calories so I can have a full bowl and not worry about a tiny portion! Love this recipe!

  • Micah

    2022-03-08 21:21:30

    This was delicious, I used teriyaki marinade instead of soy sauce. Everything turned out perfect.

  • Candyce

    2022-02-13 23:52:26

    Pretty delicious meal. I appreciated how easy it was to make and the spicy mayo was a nice touch.

  • Linda

    2022-01-09 21:25:15

    Had only russets and the skins did not crisp up. Instead, the chicken was coated with a bit of potato and it was delicious! Nice heat from the hot sauce. A new favorite!

  • Carly

    2021-12-19 18:57:49

    We loved this recipe!! The potatoes took a little longer than expected to get as crispy and then soft on the inside as I like but it was soo good! The marinade is perfection, thank you!

  • Jennifer

    2021-12-03 17:50:12

    This was pretty good. I did find it took longer to get the potatoes crispy enough than suggested and also it was a little too salty for us. This would be down to the soy sauce - I didn’t add any extra salt. If I made it again I think I’d try a low sodium soy sauce.

  • Kathleen

    2021-11-21 18:36:46

    I'm missing the soy and hot sauces in the ingredient list. How much should I be using for the marinade?

  • Anna

    2021-11-15 20:38:19

    Excellent as written! I found it wanting some acidity to balance the salty-garlickiness, and squeezed half a lime in - perfection! Easy and flavorful.

  • Matthew

    2021-11-09 21:59:29

    Wow this recipe is bomb! Includes all ingredients I frequently have on hand. Super easy to prep, cook and clean up. I made the mistake of slicing the breasts against the grain since I’m used to grill in steak, so I made sure to put a real hot sear on the chicken as they went into the skillet. Definitely recommend this recipe.

  • Leonel

    2021-11-08 18:28:53

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! I was just looking for something to make with my extra chicken and potatoes when I found this, but I'm adding it to our dinner rotation. I will say though that I think it's funny that it says "almost zero cleanup" when that was not at all my experience. In fact, this one dish basically filled my sink. (Since you'll need multiple dishes. For marinating the chicken, to store the cooked potatoes before re-adding, cutting boards and utensils, the frying pan, etc). So do expect to need to do the dishes afterwards. But the dish itself is fantastic!

  • Lisa

    2021-09-12 18:10:08

    Finally a recipe for a chicken dish that doesn't taste like any other recipe it was absolutely delicious actually people requested very delicious

  • Megan

    2021-09-03 17:13:34

    This looks good. Is there a replacement for the soy sauce?

  • Monika

    2021-08-27 13:31:33

    Family favorite! We use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and adjust the hot sauce (we also use Sriracha) according to spice preferences and find it not too salty. I actually make the potatoes in the skillet instead of boiling them...but that's just our family preference!

  • Carol

    2021-08-19 11:44:45

    My son and his girlfriend made this for dinner this week. It was fantastic! So easy, but very flavorful. This will definitely get added to our rotation.

  • Janine

    2021-08-08 17:09:32

    Second time making this recipe and I love it. Super easy. Tasty. Easy clean up. 10/10!

  • Anne McPherson

    2021-08-04 12:23:31

    Excellent! I am not a great cook and don't enjoy at all, but this was easy and my husband loved! For me, a miracle:)

  • Linda

    2021-07-26 19:27:41

    Easy to make but extremely salty. Will definitely use low sodium soy sauce next time.

  • Katie

    2021-07-13 10:48:31

    Extremely salty! If it hadn’t of been so salty we would have really enjoyed this. Other than there there were nice flavours.

  • Mikayla

    2021-07-09 00:02:39

    This was good and easy to make, however the chicken was incredibly salty even with not adding any salt to anything other than the water that the potatoes boiled in. Definitely think less sodium soy sauce is probably a better option.

  • Caitlyn

    2021-06-26 20:47:10

    Just made it! Sooo good! I was skeptical about the marinade just because I’m picky but I added slouch nice flavor. I preseasoned the chicken with garlic powder, creole seasoning, and some salt.

  • Christine

    2021-06-18 21:51:37

    This was really a lifesaver recipe. It was enjoyable to make after coming back from a 2 week long vacation and the flavor is outstanding. Must try!

  • Camille

    2021-05-23 00:37:04

    One of our favorite recipes, simple yet very yummy! I go back to this when we cook it. Thank you so much for sharing this!

    Great recipe but a little salty less soy sauce next time

  • Pam

    2021-03-08 19:42:28

    There wasn’t a lot of color (and I did use fresh herbs), but the flavor was excellent.

  • emmanuel villalpando

    2021-03-08 19:26:19

    It came out great I also added the herbs to the potatoes and it came out super tasty !!

  • Hayley

    2021-03-02 01:33:32

    Loved this!! The only thing I did differently was added some of the garlic and rosemary and salt and pepper to the potatoes. I will definitely be making this again!!

  • Cheryl

    2021-02-22 17:49:11

    Loved it. It required a lot of attention and prep, but it was so worth it. I added root veggies with the potatoes and it didn’t hurt it at all. Used low salt soy sauce! Perfection!

  • Shelly

    2021-01-15 18:31:02

    This recipe was AMAZING! My husband said I can make it again any time, I followed the recipe exactly and in my cast iron pan. Added salt separate because of the soy sauce and it was perfect.

  • andra brewer

    2021-01-11 20:20:33

    Great recipe. I did add onion and peppers. Was delicious. Will make again.

  • Lilly

    2021-01-08 16:35:56

    I tried this tonight as I has a load of potatoes to use. I thought it would be too salty or spicy (for hubby) but it was so tasty! The chicken was flavoursome and really moist, the potatoes were nice and crispy! I only had dark soy and dried herbs but it was still a great recipe to try and we ate it with homemade coleslaw.

  • Gage

    2020-12-17 20:30:32

    Good easy recipe. Halved the recipe and skipped the marinade portion and turned out fine. Substituted 1 tablespoon of gochujang paste for all sources of heat and the only salt in the dish came from the butter and soy sauce. Good heat level for myself and a little on the salter side but overall still a good recipe.

  • Tenaya

    2020-12-16 20:53:18

    It’s pretty salty. Maybe less soy sauce next time.

  • Chuck Panarella

    2020-11-26 23:11:01

    My family is not big on hot sauce so I left that out, but it was really good. It did not look as good as the picture but tasted just fine. It was our Thanksgiving dinner as we are waiting for the Turkey to go on sale this weekend.
