Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
    2. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine the chicken, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the balsamic vinegar, dill, oregano, paprika, garlic and a large pinch of both salt and pepper. Toss well to evenly coat the chicken. Add the potatoes, and bell peppers, and toss with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of both salt and pepper. Arrange everything in an even layer. Roast for 40-45 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes golden. Let the chicken cool slightly and then shred into chunks.
