How to make Garlic Butter Chicken and Potatoes Skillet
Step 1: Combine the chicken strips with soy sauce, olive oil, pepper, and hot sauce in a large bowl to make the garlic butter chicken and potatoes. Set aside.
Step 2: In boiling salted water, parboil the potatoes for about 8 minutes.
Step 3: Mix a tbsp olive oil and a tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the drained potatoes and cook for about 4 minutes and stir, cooking for 4 to 5 minutes more or until golden and fork-tender. Place the cooked potatoes on the plate. Set aside.
Step 4: Add the rest of the 2 tbsp butter in the same skillet and one layer, lay the chicken strips. Add in the garlic and red chilli pepper flakes.
Step 5: Cook the chicken strips for about a minute on both sides or until browned.
Step 6: Add the reserved marinade into the skillet and continue to cook until the marinade is cooked with the chicken.
Step 7: Add in and quickly stir the fresh herbs.
Step 8: Place the sauteed potatoes back into the pan and heat through.
Step 9: Adjust the seasoning according to taste.
Step 10: Once done, remove from the heat and serve immediately. Recommended, garnish with extra crushed chilli pepper, fresh herbs, and sprinkle over with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
