Creamy Garlic Butter Chicken and Potatoes Recipe

Creamy Garlic Butter Chicken and Potatoes is the best chicken recipe I have ever tasted! Absolute perfection with potatoes and spinach. A complete meal in one!


  • 6 Chicken Thighs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 medium Potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 4 cups spinach (Use as much as you want)
  • 1/4 cup butter (I used unsalted)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 cup Whole milk
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Chicken Bouillon cube
  • 3 Tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix together the salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, thyme, rosemary and paprika
  • Season chicken thighs on both sides with the spice mixture
  • Wrap seasoned chicken and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour
  • While chicken is marinating, cut each of the potatoes into 8 equal pieces
  • Transfer the potatoes into a baking pan
  • Drizzle olive oil on the potatoes and season with salt and pepper
  • Partially bake the potatoes in 400F / 204C preheated oven for 30 minutes
  • When the chicken is done marinating, sear them in heated oil, skin side down, 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside for later
  • In the same pan, saute the spinach until they wilt down
  • Remove the spinach from the pan and set aside for later
  • In the same pan, completely melt the butter
  • Add the garlic and saute until it gets fragrant
  • Add the flour and cook for a minute to kick out the flour taste
  • Add the chicken broth, and let the sauce cook and thicken
  • Add the milk, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, chicken bouillon cube, freshly chopped parsley and basil, then cook for a minute to let the flavors come together
  • When the potatoes come out of the oven, place the chicken on them, then add the spinach and the sauce
  • Bake in a 400F / 204C oven for 35 to 40 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F / 74C and the potatoes are fully cooked through.
  • When it comes out of the oven, let it sit for 10 minutes before serving
