Directions

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
