Add the potatoes, onion, tomatoes, peppers, and olives to a large bowl, and the chicken to another bowl. Add half of each the garlic, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and paprika over the veggies, and the other half of these ingredients to the chicken. Toss everything well.
Dump the veggies into a large 9x13 baking dish. Arrange the chicken over the veggies. Roast for 1 hour, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are fork tender.
Sprinkle the fresh basil all over the chicken and veggies. Serve, and drizzle some of the pan juices over the chicken.
Chicken Choices: This recipe is versatile! Whether you prefer chicken breasts, thighs, or drumsticks, any of them will work wonderfully. Just ensure they're roughly the same size for even cooking.
Vegetable Variations: Feel free to experiment with other veggies you have on hand. Zucchini, carrots, or green beans would be lovely additions or substitutions.
Baking Dish: If you don't have a 9x13 baking dish, two smaller dishes will do the trick. Just make sure to spread out the ingredients so they're not too crowded, ensuring even roasting.
Storage and Reheating: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When reheating, you might want to add a splash of chicken broth or water to keep the dish moist.
Olive Alternatives: If kalamata olives aren't your thing or you don't have them on hand, green olives or even black olives can be used as a substitute.
