Baked Chicken Thighs with potatoes


  • Chicken thighs 10-12
  • 4 large idaho potatoes
  • 1 cup of baby carrots
  • 1/4 cup of tomato puree
  • 1 package of dry knorr onion soup
  • Goya adobo seasoning
  • Crushed red pepper


  1. Place chicken thighs in two different medium sized casseroles (one can be saved for tomorrow in the fridge after seasoning)
  2. Season thighs with Adobo seasoning on both sides
  3. With skin side up equally spread the tomato puree over each thigh
  4. Pour dry contents of the onion soup over each thigh
  5. Cut the potatoes into small pieces and place alongside the chicken along with the carrots
  6. Sprinkle crushed red pepper over the whole thing (I use this a lot)
  7. Cover with foil paper and bake for 45 minutes on 375
  8. Remove foil paper and bake an additional 15 minutes on 415 or until chicken and potatoes golden
  9. Serve with salad or rice


This is another dish that brings me back home to my mother's cooking.  She used to make chicken thighs like this all the time!  It's super easy to make and allows you plenty of do nothing time while it bakes.  I served it with salad and sourdough bread toasted with extra virgin olive oil.  Great together!  Summer also loved the chicken so it's kid friendly! 

Thank you for sharing

Take Me Home Fun Bake

Ingredients (dough)

  • 14 Tbls of all purpose flour
  • 6 Tbls of parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbls of baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

Ingredients (topping)

  • 2 cans of sardines
  • 2 cups of tomato puree 
  • 1 cup of corn


  1. Blend all ingredients for the dough in a blender and then pour liquid into a medium size buttered casserole
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  3. In a medium frying pan sautee sardines, tomatoes, and corn.  Salt and pepper to taste
  4. Pour sardine sauce over the liquid dough kinda like as a pizza topping
  5. Bake for 30 minutes and serve warm.  Add some shredded cheddar cheese when there's only 5 minutes to go in the baking time! 


I usually make this baked dish whenever I have some ingredients laying around in the pantry that I haven't used in a while.  If you don't like sardines don't use it!  Treat it like a pizza!  Put whatever topping dry or wet that you wish on it.  I have made this with sundried tomatoes, mushrooms,  chicken, olives, etc...  I usually like to make a wet sauce on the stove top before hand. I still want to try it with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and kalamata olives! Enjoy making it and I'm sure your family will love it!  By the way, my mom has been making this ever since I can remember!  She always used sardines so it's kinda like a home feeling when I make it.
