Chewy Potatoes with Garlic Seasoning

This Chewy Potatoes with Garlic Seasoning recipe offers a delightful alternative to traditional noodles, with a satisfying chewiness and a burst of garlic flavor that makes it a standout dish. Follow these steps to create this simple yet delicious meal:


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cubed – The base of your dish, providing a unique chewy texture.
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced – Adds a punch of flavor that garlic lovers will adore.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil – For roasting, adding a light fruity taste.
  • Salt, to taste – Enhances the natural flavors of the potatoes and garlic.
  • Black pepper, to taste – Adds a slight kick.
  • Chopped parsley or chives for garnish (optional) – Adds a pop of color and fresh flavor.


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Begin by heating your oven to 200°C (400°F). This high temperature is crucial for achieving the perfect texture on the potatoes.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • After peeling, chop the potatoes into small, bite-sized cubes. This size is ideal for ensuring each potato piece becomes evenly crispy and chewy.
  3. Season the Potatoes:
    • In a large bowl, combine the cubed potatoes with the minced garlic, ensuring each piece is coated evenly. Drizzle with olive oil, and season generously with salt and black pepper. Toss everything together to ensure the potatoes are well-coated with the seasoning.
  4. Roast the Potatoes:
    • Spread the seasoned potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This prevents sticking and ensures the potatoes roast evenly.
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for about 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and have achieved a chewy texture. Halfway through the cooking time, give the potatoes a stir or shake the pan to ensure they roast evenly on all sides.
  5. Serve:
    • Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Taste, and adjust the seasoning with more salt or pepper if necessary.
    • Transfer the potatoes to a serving dish and garnish with chopped parsley or chives if desired. This adds a fresh, herby flavor that complements the garlic and potato beautifully.

Enjoy these Chewy Potatoes with Garlic Seasoning as a hearty side dish or a satisfying snack on their own. Their unique texture and robust flavors are sure to make them a hit with everyone who tries them. Happy cooking!
