Au gratin Chicken and potatoes bake easy recipe

Au gratin Chicken and potatoes in the oven is a very simple recipe that my family often asks me to prepare.  I please them very gladly because, with a few simple steps, they have second and side dishes on the table without needing of long preparations. 

Yes, precisely because it is a really simple, delicious, and flavorful Italian main course, and really with very little effort you bring a mouthwatering dish to the table

It happens to all of us to come home tired from work and not feel like cooking. We often fall back on cooking a chicken breast in a pan … but why not make this ingredient more mouthwatering without effort? This is just the perfect recipe!

Chicken is often “snubbed” and considered a sad dish but, as I have shown you with a few of my recipes, we can make those who think so think again. Suffice it to say that the most read and searched recipe on my blog is precisely a recipe with chicken: Chicken Cacciatore.

That’s why today I propose chicken again but flavored with a crispy and fragrant gratin.

If you want, at the end of cooking, you can operate the grill to make it crispier.

Tip:

To make the potatoes crispy outside and soft inside: leave them in water, changing it several times. This will allow them to lose their starch and turn out perfect!
