When I first saw this on Pinterest, I was skeptical. I expected my potatoes and green beans to be swimming in chicken 'juice' and that my green beans would end up mushy and overcooked. I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case at all. There was very little grease in the pan, the green beans were just fine (I used canned green beans) and the potatoes and chicken were perfectly cooked and well seasoned. The original post I saw used an entire stick of butter, which would have produced more grease, but I only used a few pats...I didn't see the point in a whole stick, but others seem to really like it that way too. It's up to ya.
One Dish Chicken Dinner
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
8-10 small red potatoes (I've used Idaho potatoes as well); halved
1 can of cut green beans
1/4 cup butter (more or less as desired)
spices of choice (I sprinkled on some dried basil, oregano, onion powder, parsley, herbs de provence,)
*original recipe calls for a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix. I'm not a big fan of ranch seasoning, so I did my own thing.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place raw chicken down center of 9 x 13 dish.
Dump green beans (drained) down one side as pictured.
Place cut potatoes down the other side.
Season as desired (entire dish), and place pats of butter randomly over entire dish.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for one hour.
That's it. One hour and remove the foil and viola! Dinner is served!
