One dish wonder ..

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

I snagged this one off of Pinterest .. it’s one of those “why didn’t I think of that?!” recipes. Seems like the easiest thing ever, yet the thought never crossed my mind. If you need something super easy to make for dinner .. this is your winner.

Chicken one dish meal

One Dish – Chicken, Green Beans and New Potatoes

  • Arrange 4-6 chicken breasts (I cut mine in half), fresh green beans and quartered new potatoes in a 13×9 inch pan. I put mine in three rows, the chicken down the middle with each veggie on either side.
  • Sprinkle a packet of Italian dressing mix over the top. The original recipe calls for a stick of butter to be melted over the top of it all. As you can see in the photo, I cut the butter up, randomly placed it throughout the top of the dish and let it melt during baking. I actually had a packet of the Garlic and Herb seasoning on hand instead of the Italian, use whatever you’d like.
  • I also added some white wine, lemon juice, garlic, fresh parsley and fresh basil. Use whatever you come up with to make it your own.
  • Feel free to use canned green beans to make it quicker. I just don’t do canned green beans and I highly recommend that you don’t either. Just sayin’. The extra five minutes it takes to snap the beans is so incredibly worth it.
  • Cover the dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.

There you have it! It is easy to throw together, bakes for an hour while you clean up the kitchen and prepare lunches for the next day and there is plenty for leftovers.

If you’re feeling really spunky and want to pop a quick dessert in the oven, too .. try this one out ..
