Cooking chicken in the oven, baked with potatoes and mushrooms:

Step 1: Prepare the chicken for baking.

For cooking, you can use as a whole chicken, and any part of it (fillet, breast, drumsticks, thighs, backs). Any quarters are perfect for baking. It is reasonable to do this: if this is some special occasion or holiday, then you can cook the whole carcass: it looks very solemn and beautiful, but on a typical day, butchering is also tasty, and it cooks many times faster. Rinse the chicken well in water, then dry it with paper towels. Next, in a bowl, mix olive oil and dry ground paprika until uniform. Salt the chicken evenly and pepper with black pepper, rubbing these spices a little into the skin. Next, we connect the legs together with culinary thread, and we wrap the wings behind the back. When this is done, put the chicken on a cutting board or in a bowl and grease it with a mixture of oil and paprika with a culinary brush. If you don’t have one, then you can rub the meat directly with this mass.

Step 2: Cook the potatoes and mushrooms.

Young potatoes are recommended to be baked directly in the peel. If you don’t have one, peel the tubers and wash them thoroughly. Young vegetables should also be washed, but with a special brush or the rough side of a clean sponge. We clean the onion and also wash it. Soak the mushrooms for 10 minutes in a bowl of water, then rinse them and drain the liquid. All these ingredients cut into 4 parts. If the potato is large, then it must be cut into 6 parts. Mix all these ingredients in a bowl and salt to taste.

Step 3: Bake the dish.

We lay the chicken on the grill and send it to the oven, heated to 200 degrees. Below it, it is necessary to install a pan or baking sheet, on which fat from the chicken will drain. If you do not have a lattice, then lay the chicken directly on a baking sheet. Bake meat for 30 minutes. After we take out the pan and put potatoes with onions and mushrooms on it and mix them well with fat. Add sprigs of rosemary. If you cook chicken on a baking sheet, then lay the products around it. We again send the baking sheet to the oven and bake the chicken dish another 30-40 minutes (maybe a little more, it all depends on your oven) until the potatoes and onions are tender. During baking, garnish several times to mix so that it is evenly baked. During cooking, the chicken can be periodically greased with olive oil. Yes, and for baking a side dish, you may need additional oil. And one more thing: if instead of the whole chicken you cook its parts, then they must be cooked on a baking sheet or in the form and immediately laid with a side dish. The baking time in this case is 40-45 minutes in total.

Step 4: Serve the chicken in the oven, baked with potatoes and mushrooms.

The dish is served hot. We spread the chicken on the dish, and spread the garnish around it. Already during the feast, the chicken is divided into parts and laid out on portioned plates. Fragrant, with a crispy crust, it will give a holiday and true pleasure to every home and all your loved ones. Bon appetit to all!

Recipe Tips:

- - To such a dish, you can serve any sauce to your taste, suitable for tender chicken meat. And it can be both spicy options, and tender, creamy, cheese, citrus and garlic varieties. Here it all depends on your desires and preferences.

- - If the chicken you are going to use is frozen, it must first be thawed. This is best done in advance and naturally. To speed up this process, you can place it in a bowl of cold water.

- - To enrich the taste in the marinade with butter and paprika for chicken, you can use a little crushed garlic and special seasonings (for chicken grilled or others to your taste).
