After a friend shared the recipe Green Beans, Chicken & Potatoes – Julie’s Eats & Treats, she raved on and on about how easy and great it was. I immediately made it and let me tell you she was right. I don’t think dinner can get easier or more family friendly than this recipe.
This meal was a one dish Italian flavored chicken and sides dish. No need for anything else besides maybe some dinner rolls if you have them around. Moist flavorful chicken, tender potatoes, and perfectly cooked green beans. Both kids loved this meal and ate seconds and leftovers the next day. Not to mention my 5-year-old decided she did like green beans.
The only thing I would do differently and I will keep you all posted is to create my own Italian seasoning mix. I am not a fan of packaged seasoning mixture because they are usually full of salt and junk. Ranch dressing I have down but I don’t normally cook a lot with Italian seasoning so I will have to experiment. If you try this with a homemade seasoning mix before I update let me know.
- 2-3 cups fresh green beans, trimmed and cut
- 2-3 chicken breasts, cubed
- 3-5 medium/large red or new potatoes, cubed
- 1/4 cup butter, cut in small cubes or slices
- 1 package of Italian seasoning/dressing mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9×13″ pan line up green beans on one side lengthwise and potatoes on the other.
Place the chicken in the center row.
Arrange the butter cubes evenly over everything and then sprinkle all with the Italian seasoning.
Tightly cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
Carefully remove foil (it is so so hot) and serve.
