This is one of the easiest meals to make. The smell of the chicken cooking floods me with memories of my mom. It was one of her dishes. I remember one time friends asking if shed make it when they came over for a sleep over. She kinda acted like it was a big deal and shed have to see if she could. As I watched her make it, I was shocked at how easy it was. I mean its just chicken, chili powder and vinegar.
My mom use to use this as the chili seasoning on the chicken but Im glad I checked before I just poured it on.
As for the Potatoes, thats a recipe from my friend Ashley. Ashley has been a dear online friends for 3 yrs now. Her son, Lucas, was born two days before Riley. We share the struggle of feeding toddlers via chat and txt message. When she told me about the parsley potatoes, I knew I had to make them. Riley takes after me with his love of potatoes (and ranch). I figured they would be the perfect mellow side for the spicy chili chicken. Riley loved them so much he asked for more grassy potatoes and said no to the offer of ranch.
The chili chicken might be a bit strong for toddler tongues, as Ry refused to eat more than a bite. It might be a recipe you want to save for date night. I think its a nice change from the same breaded chicken. And dont let Ry calling them grassy potatoes stop you from trying them as well. Parsley = grass to an almost 3 year old.
Bake @ 375 for about 50 minutes
