A recipe with no picture?? This has got to be broken rule #1. (But literally, the title is self-explanatory).
There’s a few versions of this floating around Pinterest (yes, where I get about 90% of my recipes). I wish I had found this when we lived in an apartment with no dishwasher. One dish for a whole meal?? Yes, please! But this is not a recipe for those who think foods should not touch each other. 😉
One Dish Chicken Meal:
2-3 bonless, skinless chicken breasts (quartered)
4-6 red potatoes, quartered
a couple handfuls of fresh green beans, ends cut off
seasonings of your choice
It’s as simple as the title. In a 9×13 pan, pile next to each other: green beans, chicken breasts, and potatoes (I quartered the chicken and potatoes), and throw on seasonings. I used butter, some olive oil, fresh rosemary, and a little italian seasoning for the chicken and potatoes. Also added lemon zest to the chicken. Green beans just used some butter, S&P.
Cover and throw in the oven at 350 degrees. I took mine out at 45 minutes and my chicken was a bit dry. So keep an eye on it.
It was easy, and had minimal clean-up. Sometimes that is all I’m looking for in a meal, like last night when I was super pressed for time and exhausted. But it’s kind of lack-luster, wouldn’t make it for company. The potatoes were great (my husband was raving), the chicken was dry, and my green beans were wrinkly. These problems were probably my fault – forgetting to cover the dish until halfway through, and cooking it too long. I will definitely make it again on a lazy night (and if I do I’ll take photos).
