Spiced Chicken with Potatoes

I love to cook but I usually stick to the recipe or make a few variations. I kind of put this dish together out of some of the stuff we had and when Neil told me it was blog worthy I got excited. I think I've blogged maybe one or two things that were original recipes and I'd like to create some more dishes. I'll just add it to the to-do list that is currently a mile long.

3/4 tsp salt, divided
1 tbsp chile powder
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken stock

In a bowl, combine chile powder, 1/2 tsp salt, thyme, pepper, and 1 tbsp olive oil. Add chicken and toss to coat. Allow to sit while you prep the veggies.

In a large bowl, combine 1/4 tsp salt, potatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and 1 tbsp olive oil. Toss to combine.

Add chicken mixture to large skillet and brown for 2 minutes on each side. Add potato mixture to pan and 1/2 cup chicken stock. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 25 minutes until potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!
