How to make Buttermilk Ranch Roasted Chicken With Potatoes
Step 1: To a large bowl, add the chicken, olive oil, salt, garlic, onion powder, and peppers. Toss and massage the spices to evenly coat the chicken.
Step 2: Using cooking spray or a little olive oil, grease 1 large baking pan (18 x 13-inch) or two smaller pans (13 x 9-inch). In the pan(s), evenly arrange the pieces of chicken. Place in a 325 degrees oven and bake for about 45 minutes.
Step 3: In the meantime, clean the potatoes. Cut the larger potatoes in half but leave the smaller pieces whole. Make sure to cut the potatoes not bigger than 2-inch in diameter.
Step 4: Take the chicken from the oven and evenly arrange the potatoes around the pieces of chicken. Place the pans back in the oven and resume baking for another 30 minutes.
Step 5: With buttermilk ranch dressing, baste the chicken and sprinkle the potatoes with a bit of the little coarse grain salt. Bake for additional 30 minutes. Then, take the pans off the oven and adjust the oven temperature to 375 degrees. Baste again the chicken and potatoes with the buttermilk ranch dressing. Bake further until the chicken is golden brown. This takes about 20 to 30 minutes more.
Step 6: When done, arrange the chicken and potatoes on a serving plate. Serve garnished with some fresh chopped parsley if desired. Enjoy!
