½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1. Clean and wash chicken well, strain, add salt and pepper to your liking.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together all marinates ingredients. Marinate chicken, put in Pyrex (do not use a metallic dish), cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight. The longer you marinate the better to gain more flavors.

4. Peel the potatoes, add salt and pepper to taste and ½ cup of olive oil. Toss well. Put potatoes in a baking pan; add marinated chicken and pour one cup of hot water over potatoes.

 5. Bake in a preheated oven at 200º C for 1½ hour, turn chicken on other side to bake evenly.
Check potatoes and if needed, you may add half cup hot water to soften.

6. Remove from the oven when chicken is golden brown and potatoes well done.

7. Serve chicken decorated with potatoes.
