Skillet Red Potatoes Recipe

This easy Skillet Potatoes recipe is one of my favorites because it comes together so quickly! My kids love it with a little bit of cheese on top . . . but these red potatoes are delicious and flavorful without it.

  • Large Skillet
  • Cutting Board
  • Chopping Knife


  • 6 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 6 red potatoes medium, cut into half inch chunks
  • teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¾ teaspoon paprika


  • In a large skillet (either a non-stick or cast iron skillet), heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add potatoes to the skillet and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure all potatoes are evenly cooked.
  • Stir in seasonings; cook and stir 5-10 minutes longer or until potatoes are browned and tender (final cooking time will depend on the size of the potato chunks).


  • The time that it takes to cook your potatoes will vary, depending on how big or small your cut your potatoes. I aim for smaller pieces so that the potatoes cook a little faster.
  • If you like your potatoes a little more crispy on the outside, turn up the heat just a little bit and let them get those dark spots on the outside.
