Cooking two things at once

Ok So I am cooking my dale steak sauce chicken wings tonight ( frozen 375 45 min turn and then another 45 min) well I also want to cook 2 baked potatoes. Will this alter my cooking time for the chicken wings?

I am not by any means an expert on co-baking, but I'd probably rotate the dishes half-way through baking - switching which shelf the dish is on and rotating it front to back, to accommodate for any hot spots in the oven.

The potatoes and the baking dish can go side by side as long as they fit. This makes sure they both get even heat - unless it is a convection oven where you can put them anywhere you want...inside the oven that is.

by the way, you can microwave a "baked" potato if you want to simplify things....you won't get the dry/crispy skin if you like it that way, but it will still be good....just use a fork to poke it full of holes, and put it on high.....i usually cook red potatoes for anywhere between 8 and 15 minutes, longer for russet

the actual time will vary, so i would start at 5 min or so, check, then keep cooking in intervals until you are happy

You can also stick a clean nail in a potato, bake in a regular oven. The heat of the nail helps to cook it from the inside as well as the outside heat of the oven.

cool tip! i think i've actually heard that before, but i forgot about it

but if you want to cook a potato REALLY fast, you can stick the nail though the potato and into an electrical outlet! though i wonder if you would wind up with mashed potatoes instead....
