One-Dish Chicken Dinner

22 Mar

I saw this one-dish meal on Pinterest and thought it looked easy and delicious. Problem was, there wasn’t much of a recipe on the actual pin other than sprinkling all the things with Italian seasoning and baking for an hour at 350 degrees. So, I did the best I could to replicate what I saw.

Now, there really isn’t much to this, which is great because it allows for a lot of flexibility according to your specific tastes. I used 3 large chicken breasts because they fit the best without being crowded, a couple large handfuls of trimmed fresh green beans, and about 4 or 5 red potatoes. I also used some Mrs. Dash seasoning blend because I only had a tiny bit of Italian seasoning on hand.

I checked the temperature of the chicken at about 45 minutes and it was done, so you may want to keep an eye on it. Also, some of the potatoes weren’t cooked all the way through. If I were to make this again I’d say to cut them no larger than a 1-inch dice, maybe even a little smaller. And as you can see, the green beans on top were overcooked and dried out. I would recommend a different veggie like carrots, asparagus, or maybe broccoli instead of the green beans.

Anyway, I wrote the recipe out as I made it if you’d like to give it a shot. The chicken turned out great and the veggies had real potential with a couple tweaks.

  •  3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4-5 red potatoes, cut into 1″ cubes
  • 2 cups carrots, cut into 1″ pieces (can use whole asparagus or broccoli florets)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Italian Seasoning or other herb blend of choice
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13″ baking dish with non-stick spray.

Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts liberally with salt, pepper, and seasoning blend. Lay evenly down center of baking dish. Place diced potatoes on one side of chicken and veggies on the other and season with salt, pepper, and seasoning blend. Slice butter into thin squares and place evenly over veggies and chicken. Bake for 45-60 minutes until chicken reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees.
