Recipe Friday: Peppery Chicken with Potatoes


Hi everyone!! Yes I know I actually totally forgot to post a recipe last week. I was so busy and completely forgot to do so.  😱 But I did not this week 😀. Hope you enjoy this one as much as we did when I tried it a few weeks ago. I served it with rice but you can serve it just with vegetables as well. Enjoy!!


Peppery Chicken With Potatoes


1 pound red potatoes (about 6 medium), cut into wedges
1 large onion, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)

Fit Check 3/20/18


Another week has went by and I am getting closer to my goal of getting healthier. I am eating better and exercising more. I am enjoying being outside with my kids. My weight is not coming down anymore yet but I know it will. I just have to keep on and I will. I am stuck between 178 and 180. It can be frustrating and discouraging but I know it will come off as long as I am persistent.
