Add the diced potatoes and stir to coat. Spoon the potatoes from the seasoning mixture using a slotted spoon and transfer to the 9×13 dish. Don’t pour them as you need the remaining seasoning mixture to marinate the chicken in.)
Add the diced chicken to the bowl with the leftover olive oil/hot sauce mixture and stir to coat. Allow it to marinate while the potatoes cook.
