Prep and start roasting the potatoes
Heat the oven to 425°F.
- Scrub the potatoes; cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces.
Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper, if desired. On the prepared sheet pan, drizzle the potatoes with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper and the turmeric spice blend and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast until just starting to soften, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the chicken.
Prep the chicken; roast the potatoes and chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Season generously with salt and pepper and the berbere spice blend.
Remove the pan from the oven. Toss the potatoes and move to one end of the pan. Place the chicken on the other end of the pan. Roast, rotating the pan halfway through, until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender, golden brown, and starting to crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the salad.
Make the kale-apple salad
