INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 1/2 lb (650g)¬†chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1 1/2 lb (650g) baby yellow potatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon¬†olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon¬†fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon¬†fresh oregano, chopped
  • Salt and fresh cracked¬†pepper
  • Crushed red chili pepper flakes, optional

The marinade

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or coconut amino if you‚Äôre strictly paleo)
  • 1 tablespoon¬†olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (we used Sriracha)
  • Fresh cracked¬†pepper

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken strips with soy sauce, olive oil, pepper, and hot sauce. Set aside to marinate while you cook potatoes.

2. Parboil the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8 minutes. This will accelerate cooking time in the skillet and ensure a nice golden crust on the potatoes.

3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. When butter is melted, add drained potatoes. Cook potatoes for about 4 minutes, stir and cook an additional 4-5 minutes until potatoes are golden and fork-tender. Transfer potatoes sauteed to a plate and set aside.

4.¬†Keep the same skillet over medium heat and add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, lay the chicken strips in one layer in the skillet, keeping the drained marinade for later. Add garlic and red chili pepper flakes to the chicken.¬†Cook¬†chicken strips on each side for 1 minute each until nicely browned ‚Äď adjust timing depending on how you like your grilled¬†chicken.

5. Stir in the reserved marinade and cook with chicken until the marinade is cooked. Add the fresh herbs and give a quick stir. Then add the sauteed potatoes back to the pan and heat through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.

6. Remove from heat and serve immediately your Garlic Butter Chicken Recipe with sauteed Potatoes, garnished with more crushed chili pepper, fresh herbs, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese over the Chicken and Potatoes if you like. Enjoy!
