This Paleo Chicken and Roasted Golden Potatoes recipe hits home with serious flavor. I use ghee and olive oil in this recipe to make sure everything stays juicy.

Please do me a favor. Don’t just go out and buy any potato. You need gold potatoes. There really, REALLY is a big difference. I mean, if you have red potatoes laying around of course, use those but if you don’t, buy golden please. Do yourself that favor.

Basically we put that pan on high, cook the chicken on one side until your desired doneness, then add potatoes and place in a 400F oven for 25-35 mins depending on the size off our drumsticks.

Make sure to cut the potatoes thin enough to allow them to cook evenly and thoroughly.

I added a crunchy snack that is also cooked in coconut oil. Jacksons Honest tortilla chips. Super crispy and good for you.

  • 2 drum sticks

  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  4. In a large bowl mix chopped potatoes, olive oil, 1 tbsp kosher salt, 2 tsp pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder. Mix well.
  5. Heat iron skillet to med-high heat. Add coconut oil. Place drum sticks on skillet. Should hear it sear when it hits the pan.
  6. Cook 5-8 mins or until golden brown. Flip drum sticks then add potatoes around chicken making sure they get to bottom of pan too.
  7. Place in oven and cook on middle rack for 25-35 mins depending on your oven and size of drum sticks. Use a meat thermometer to ensure it reads 175F. To get a crispier chicken, broil on low for an additional 2-3 mins and remove.
