Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, mix the potatoes with remaining oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Toss well to get everything coated.
Arrange the potatoes on the sheet pan, in a single layer.
Add the chicken and roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes turning fries once during baking, or until the chicken is cooked through and the fries are crispy.
