A classic roasted chicken recipe with potatoes

Another day, another cool recipe! Today I’m going to present you a dish that we cook a lot for family meetings here in France, our famous roasted chicken with fried potatoes. Each family has its own recipe but today let me introduce you to mine! I hope you’re ready because it’s going to be a bit of work, but it’s worth it, believe me! 


An organic farm chicken

1kg of organic potatoes

200 ml of Olive oil 

1 tsp of cumin 

1 tsp of paprika

1 pinch of salt 


10 cloves of garlic 


Bay leaves


300 g of Kalamata olive

Herbs from Provence

Preparing the chicken: 

  1. First, wash your chicken very well and prepare 4  « garnished bouquet » with thyme, bay leaves and rosemary 
  2. In a bowl, pour the olive oil and add the paprika, cumin, salt, pepper and mix it all together to get a homogeneous result
  3. Then, cut a clove of garlic and insert 4 cloves of garlic in the chicken and one or two « garnished bouquet » 
  4. Close the chicken tightly with plastic wrap and brush generously with the olive oil sauce 
  5. Place the chicken in a « cocotte » with a base of water and add the olives, a few cloves of garlic and two « garnished bouquet », then, let stand for about 5 hours so that the chicken can marinate
  6. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and let it cook for 1 hour with the lid of the  « cocotte », then increase the heat to 210 degrees for another 30 minutes without the lid
  7. It’s done! 

Preparing the potatoes

  1. Put the potatoes on a baking sheet and add a few cloves of garlic, a few sprigs of rosemary and a good drizzle of olive oil, a good pinch of salt and some « herbes de Provence » 
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and let it cook for 30-45 minutes straight according to your taste

NB: You can accompany it with a salad to bring a little freshness especially at this time with the strong heat.
