    Place the tray back into the oven and let it bake uncovered for 30 minutes. at the end of this time, the chicken will be moist and tender, and the chicken skin will have become crisp and golden brown.

    Let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before serving. since the dish contains potatoes you don't really need bread or any other accompaniment, except maybe for a salad. one-pot-wonder folks!!
