 One Pot Weeknight Chicken Dinner will be….

A lot of my readers are working moms and/or dads so I hope, no I’ll bet, that  this recipe helps.

It’s quick,  easy, and delish!

First get out your dishwasher safe cutting board and cut up the chicken. In the pursuit of quick and easy I just thawed out some tenders in the microwave and cut them into pieces.

Put a large skillet or sauté pan on at medium high and swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Put in the chicken pieces and stir them around a few times as they cook.

When they have browned add the carrots, salt, pepper and dried basil.

One Pot Weeknight Supper-4-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

Mix it up a few times until the carrots just begin to get a little soft. I test them with a table fork.

Add the broth and let it come up to a fast simmer. Then…

One Pot Weeknight Supper-7-poppopcooks.com-chicken-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-one pot meals-chicken dishes-one pot

…..put in the gnocchi.  Stir a few more times until the gnocchi starts to float, 2-3 minutes. You could use cut up potatoes or some small piece pasta like penne or rigatoni instead of gnocchi. Just put it in at the same time as the broth.

Then add the peas.

Mix the peas in and when broth starts to simmer again throw in the grated parmesan.

One Pot Chicken Tenders Meal

You and your gang will like this one. You can substitute pasta or potatoes for the rice and just about any vegetable for the peas. Minute rice and peas get your One Pot Chicken Tenders Meal on the table pretty quick and make a good flavor combo.

First put a sauté pan or a large skillet on at Medium High. Add the chicken broth, the rice, salt and Pepper. Mix it up and bring the liquid up to a boil then lower the heat to keep a fast simmer. Add a little water if the broth dries up before the rice is done. When the rice is chewable but still firm put the tenders in. Squeeze in the lemon juice and toss in the rind. Sprinkle with the spices and mix everything together. Turn the chicken tenders over a couple of times as they cook.

Frozen peas cook real fast so wait until the chicken is firm to a poke or reach 165°F on an instant read meat thermometer Then add the peas and mix them in. Stir a few times as the peas cook.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas – Quick and Easy -One Pot – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-4-poppopcooks.com

Shrimp Risotto with Peas

Yes, you will have this whole meal on the table in 25 minutes or less. Yes, you will use just one pot for the whole meal. Leftovers (if there are any) just go in a zip lock and plop in the freezer for a lunch at work or a super  quick and easy weeknight nuke it no brainer.

Some Helpful kitchen gadgets

First let me recommend that you use Italian Arborio rice. That’s not a brand name, it’s a type of rice. It takes just a little bit longer to cook but the good taste is well worth it.

The best rice for Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Put a saucepan on at medium and add the olive oil. Chop up the onion and add it to the pan. Salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. Mix it all together and when the onion starts to get translucent add the rice. Stir the rice around enough to get all of it coated with the olive oil.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-poppopcooks.com

Then pour the white wine in and stir it all up. Bring it up to a simmer and stir regularly until the wine has reduced to the top of the rice.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-2-poppopcooks.com

Put half of the chicken broth into the mix and stir often as it reduces. When the liquid has reduced to the the level of the rice add the rest of the broth. Repeat the stirring and reducing until the rice is cooked. If the liquid has reduced to the level of the rice but the rice hasn’t cooked enough just add more broth – or water – in small doses until the rice is cooked. Then put the shrimp and peas into the pot.

Shrimp Risotto with Peas-3-poppopcooks.com

Mix the peas and shrimp in with the rice and stir often until the shrimp has turned white and opaque in the middle. About 3 – 4 minutes. Mix in the grated parmesan cheese and enjoy your one pot Shrimp Risotto with Peas.

Top it off with a little more grated Parmesan cheese. Chilled Pinot Grigio or Chablis goes along great with this quick and easy one pot meal.
