1 1/2 lb (650g) chicken breast, cut into strips
1 1/2 lb (650g) baby yellow potatoes, quartered
1 T olive oil
3 T butter, divided
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 t fresh thyme, chopped
1 t fresh rosemary, chopped
1 t fresh oregano, chopped
Salt and fresh cracked pepper
Crushed red chili pepper flakes, optional

The marinade:
1/4 cup soy sauce (or coconut amino if you’re strictly paleo)
1 T olive oil
1 T hot sauce (we used Sriracha)
Fresh cracked pepper

To make the garlic butter chicken with potatoes: In a large bowl, combine the chicken strips with soy sauce, olive oil, pepper, and hot sauce. Set aside to marinate while you cook the potatoes. Parboil the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8 minutes. This will accelerate cooking time in the skillet, and ensure a nice golden crust on the potatoes. In a large skillet, over medium high heat, mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. When butter is melted, add drained potatoes. Cook potatoes for about 4 minutes, stir and cook an additional 4-5 minutes until the potatoes are golden and fork-tender. Transfer sauteed potatoes to a plate and set aside. Keep the same skillet over medium heat, and add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Lay the chicken strips in one layer in the skillet, keeping the drained marinade for later. Add garlic, and red chili pepper flakes, to the chicken. Cook chicken strips on each side for 1 minute each until nicely browned, adjust timing depending on how you like your grilled chicken. Stir in the reserved marinade, and cook with chicken until the marinade is cooked. Add the fresh herbs and give a quick stir. Then add the sauteed potatoes back to the pan and heat through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary. Remove from heat, and immediately serve your Garlic Butter Chicken with sauteed Potatoes, garnished with more crushed chili pepper, fresh herbs, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, over the chicken and potatoes if you like. Enjoy!
