Yes! You can plant a sprouted potato and grow more potatoes. You will  actually get several potato plants and ultimately a bunch of new potatoes from just one sprouted potato if you do it right.

First, prep your garden bed by mounding soil into rows You’ll want to plant your potato sprouts within 2-3 days of preparing them so it’s best to get your garden bed ready to go, first.
