Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Combine chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, pesto, water, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large roasting pan; mix well.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can use Yukon potatoes instead of red, if you'd like.

Followed at written. Chicken was done at 45 minutes. I wish I used a more flavorful pesto. Remember the better flavor of pesto the better flavor of this dish. Read More

Made this for dinner last night and friends and family said "super moist chicken"! The recipe calls for a large roasting pan and I substituted with a 10" x 18" griddle and it worked beautifully! When I make this again I will definitely add quartered onions or shallots for extra flavor and crunch Read More

Easy and delicious. I have made this recipe with skinless, boneless chicken as well as bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. Though higher in calories, the bone in thighs are worth it due to better taste and appearance. Read More
