  • Salt to taste.
  • Transfer chicken pieces to pan with potatoes.
  • Top with crumbled mozzarella.
  • Place pan on center rack in heated oven and cook for 60 minutes or until chicken pieces reach an internal temperature of 170F/75C. (Cooking time will vary depending on the size of chicken pieces.)
