  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Potatoes Large, Peeled, Cut into small 1 inch cubes
  • 2 cloves Garlic Finely minced
  • 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste


  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1.5-2 pound Boneless chicken breasts I usually cut 2 big breasts in half, lengthwise
  • 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1.5 tsp Garlic powder
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1 tbsp Desiccated coconut Unsweetened, Optional


  • Heat butter and oil in a LARGE nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add potatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper.
  • Mix everything together and cook for about 10 minutes until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove potatoes from pan and keep aside.
  • In the same pan, heat butter and oil again over medium-high heat.
  • Add chicken, Italian seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and pan fry the chicken on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  • In the final 2 minutes, add coconut and pan fry it with the chicken until golden brown. This is optional but adds a slight crunch and subtle coconut flavor.
  • Push the cooked chicken to the side and add the potatoes.
  • Mix everything together until potatoes are warmed through again (takes about 1 minute) and enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheated in the microwave or stovetop.
