Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

For the topping:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a pot with water, add cubed potatoes and bring to boil. Boil them semi-soft, approx. 10 min.
  3. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, hot sauce, and if you choose, garlic powder.
  4. Add chicken and pre-boiled potato cubes and coat them well with the oil/spice mix.
  5. Transfer them in a glass baking dish, and let them bake in the oven for approx. 50 min., until the chicken and potatoes are crispy brown.
  6. Take the dish with chicken/potatoes out of the oven and top with the green onions, tomatoes, and last, the cheese.
  7. Return the dish in the oven and let bake for 5-8 min. , until the cheese is melted.

This meal does not need any side dish. It is just delicious all in one.
