Chicken with Potatoes in a Bag

Baked chicken and potatoes in a bag is very tasty and appetizing. Such a dish is much more useful than fried chicken with french fries, because we will bake all the ingredients in the oven. Using a baking bag, you can always be sure of a great result. In addition, you do not need to wash dishes while cooking, which significantly saves time. Thanks to the marinade, the meat remains juicy and tender, with a crispy golden crust on top. Potatoes are soaked in chicken juice and become very tender and fragrant. For the chicken and potato recipe, you can use any part of the chicken: drumsticks, thighs, wings or a whole breast. In addition to potatoes, you can add onions, carrots, bell pepper, eggplant or mushrooms. All right, let's get started!
