Oven fried potatoes and chicken

For the past few weeks I've been into trying new things/recipes mostly for dinner. There are some things I've made that I'll probably never make again, while others came out great, and they were really easy to make also. Here are my two new oven dishes.Both recipes i found on all recipes, just made some minor changes.

Here I have my oven fried potatoes. I love these potatoes, they were very tasty and crisp. For dinner, I served them with grilled chicken breast and some steamed vegetables.

4. Mix oil, paprika, salt and pepper together
5. coat the potatoes with the oil mixture
6. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until browned
7. Drain on paper towel before serving


Here is my oven fried chicken. This was also very tasty. For dinner I served it with some rice pilaf and steamed vegetables. It's a good munchies for afternoon snack and also taste great on sandwiches.

5. Pour the oil into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish
6. Add the chicken to the dish and sprinkle with the paprika
7. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, then turn each piece and bake for another 30 minutes
