  • 3 pounds bone-in chicken drumsticks

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped garlic, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided

  • 2 pounds red potatoes

  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Mix chicken with paprika, half of the olive oil, half of the garlic, half of the salt, and half of the pepper together in a bowl until evenly coated. Toss potatoes with remaining olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl; add lemon slices and toss well.

  3. Arrange chicken in a roasting pan and surround chicken with potatoes and lemon slices.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes; rotate and flip chicken and potatoes. Continue baking until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the potatoes are tender, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

If you want crispier chicken and potato, broil on high at the end for additional 3 minutes or until the desired texture is achieved.
