You’re in for a treat with this spectacular one pan roast chicken and potato dish! The Pommes Anna is a classic French recipe dating back to the Napoleon era and named after an actress. It’s usually made with just butter and seasoning, but I like to give it a French Italian twist by adding some thyme and grated Parmesan cheese. And let’s not forget the star of the show – a perfectly roasted chicken that pairs beautifully with this dish! The chicken juices drip into the potatoes making them super amazing! The chicken also absorbs the onion flavour. What a treat! Plus it’s quick and easy to make as the chicken is broken down for a quicker cooking time.
The Pommes Anna is like an upside-down potato cake or tart, so be sure to take extra care when arranging the first layer as it will be the top. The end result is a crispy, buttery, and downright delicious side dish that’s sure to impress. Give my Pommes Anna and roast chicken recipe a try any night of the week!
