When I set out to make this chicken dinner, my intent wasn’t to make a budget meal, but it just ended up that way.  I bought a tray of 8 chicken thighs for $4 and had some potatoes in the pantry, and a delicious and budget friendly meal was created!  The whole dish for my family of 5 cost less than $10!  That is amazing.  And the best part is that this dish is delicious, and will make an appearance again!

Here is where I admit that my kids have been spoiled.  95% of the time I buy chicken breast, so they have become used to eating white meat.  I do love chicken breast, but I also enjoy the darker cuts of meat…and I especially like how inexpensive they are to buy.  I mean, I can’t pass up a $4 tray of chicken!  The key is to prepare the thighs in a way that they are full of flavour so the kids won’t even miss what they’re used to. These Parmesan Garlic Roasted Chicken Thighs and Potatoes are that kind of dish…flavourful!

This One Dish Parmesan Garlic Roasted Chicken Thighs and Potatoes dinner was a hit!  The chicken is tender and flavourful, the potatoes cheesy and buttery…so so good.  You’ll be scraping the bottom of the pan for all the good bits!

You can have this dinner ready in less than an hour too!  Easy, inexpensive and fast.  And made with simple, fresh ingredients. Love it.
