Chicken Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes

This garlic parmesan chicken and potato skillet is so easy to make and will have you coming back for more! I love meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less that are also delicious! This is an affordable meal that feeds the whole family and you may even have leftovers for the next day.


  • 2 chicken breasts

  • 4 – 5 small/medium-sized potatoes

  • olive oil + salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika (for potatoes)

  • 2 TBSP of butter

  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper

  • 1 tsp each of paprika, onion powder, and Italian seasoning

  • 2 TBSP minced garlic

  • Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Sauce

  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

How To Make

To make this yummy recipe, start by washing 4 or 5 medium-sized potatoes then peel each of them. Cut the potatoes into small cubes and place into a medium-sized bowl. Toss the potatoes in some olive oil (enough to coat potatoes), salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. There are no specific measurements for this part, just measure with your heart! Cook potatoes in the air fryer at 400º for about 20 minutes until cooked through. Make sure to shake them while cooking a couple of times.

While the potatoes are cooking in the air fryer, cut 2 chicken breasts into small cube-sized pieces and place in a bowl and season with ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and 1 teaspoon each of paprika, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into a skillet on medium-high heat and place the seasoned chicken into the skillet to cook. Cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 165º. Now that the chicken is finished cooking, add 2 tablespoons of minced garlic to the skillet and stir, then add in your Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan sauce to the skillet and stir.

You can add as much or as little of this sauce as you’d like! Once the potatoes are crisp and finished in the air fryer, add them into your skillet and toss to coat everything in that delicious sauce. Sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese on top of everything and either place a lid on the skillet until the cheese melts, or you can place the skillet into the oven on broil until it melts. 



Once all of that yummy mozzarella cheese has melted, this dish is ready to serve! I served this alongside a salad and it was the perfect side for this meal. You can’t go wrong with crispy potatoes, but once you add in the garlic parmesan sauce and the chicken, it is taken to a whole other level! Try this recipe out, i’m sure you and your family will love it!

I like to serve this with a salad or roasted vegetables. If you like this recipe, check out some of my other similar recipes:

Helpful Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • Depending on the size of your potatoes, they may need additional time in the air fryer. Just cook them until they are tender when you stick a fork through them. 

  • Use freshly minced garlic or jarred minced garlic for this recipe. 

  • When seasoning your potatoes, I just eyeball this part. You may add as much as you would like. 

  • Grate a block of mozzarella yourself for a creamier melted cheese.

  • If you don’t have an air fryer, the potatoes can be cooked in an oven at 400-425º for about 30 minutes, making sure to stir halfway through. 

  • Onions can be added to this dish for extra flavor and a bit of crunch.

  1. This was a yummy meal. I left the sauce off so everyone could choose their own. Thanks for the idea. I’ve never made potatoes in the air fryer. They were delicious 😋

    1. Good idea. What sauces did you have to choose from if you don’t mind me asking? Just looking for different ideas. Thank you

  2. 4 stars
    Really good but very salty. May leave out salting anything next time since the sauce has a lot on its own.

  3. 5 stars
    Just made this and we loved it! We couldn’t find the Buffalo Wild Wings sauce but I found a Ken’s garlic parm dressing and it worked great! Husband says to “keep this recipe.”

  4. 5 stars
    This. Was. Delicious. I wouldn’t change one thing. A few things I did differently out of necessity. I don’t have an air fryer so I just roasted the cut up potatoes in the oven. And I used up my Baby Ray’s Garlic Parmesan sauce and then added a little of the BWW brand sauce. BBW is way spicier, which I love, so next time I will only use that. Yum! Thank you for another great recipe, Luke!

  5. We make this about every other month I would say. 🙂 haha It is so good! A suggestion — we find some brands of the Parmesan sauce are spicier than others, we test a little bit of the sauce first and when mixing with the chicken add a little bit of milk to the bottle. Shake it up. Then add that to the chicken mixture. Add Parmesan cheese to the chicken skillet mixture. And it is perfect!!!

  6. I’ve made this 2 times, doubling the recipe both times! I don’t have an air fryer so I use the oven for my potatoes but it comes out just the same I reckon. My husband and our two teenage / man sons devour it. Big hit! Thank you so much!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I didn’t have any garlic parm sauce, so I found a copykat recipe and made my own.

    1. 5 stars
      This was super tasty. Made my own garlic parm sauce from a recipe I found online – just because I didn’t have a bottle but it was so tasty I may just continue to use it! Definitely printing and keeping this recipe. I do think I may adjust (add bacon and maybe even mushrooms!) but those are just things my family may enjoy.

  9. For anyone who might benefit from a little shortcut (“lower spoons,” if you will): use frozen diced hash browns! Put them for a few minutes in the air fryer to thaw them somewhat and then spray with cooking spray and sprinkle in about half the seasonings—toss a few times and repeat spray and the rest of the seasonings.
    Follow the rest of the recipe as written and it is AMAZING!

    1. Oh I love that you wrote “lower spoons”! I live with minimal spoons so I always try to find ways to “lower spoons”.

    This is my favorite dish! Ready in 30 minutes. Very few ingredients. Smells great! I add onions and spinach.

    My daughter was raving about this recipe the other day and told me I HAD to make it. I had cooked rosemary, garlic, mustard & lemon chicken to use up, so decided to use it in this! Got the thumbs up and no leftovers. That’s a fabulous rating in our house. I am not eating meat at the moment, but my cheesy garlic spuds were delicious with my steamed green veggies. Thank you.
