Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken And Potatoes

This recipe for Chicken and Potatoes with Parmesan and Garlic Cream is an all-in-one dish, meaning we have both the meat and the side dish in one gratin.

The recipe is very Anglo-Saxon (to be honest, the inspiration is English 😉

* Ingredients for chicken and potatoes with parmesan and garlic cream:

° 4 chicken breasts (you can also use chicken thighs)
° 1 teaspoon of dried basil + 1/2 teaspoon
° 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
° 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary

° 80 ml milk
° 50 g grated Parmesan
° Nutmeg
° 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley (optionally)
