  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix potatoes with 2 tablespoons pesto in a bowl. Transfer potatoes into a large 11x13-inch baking dish. Unfold chicken thighs in the same bowl; rub remaining pesto on all sides. Fold thighs back up into original shape and place into the baking dish next to the potatoes.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring potatoes occasionally, until potatoes are soft when pieced with a fork, 28 to 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you like your potatoes extra soft, microwave cubed potatoes for 3 minutes before tossing with pesto and placing into the baking dish.
