one pot chicken tendsr dinner-10-poppopcooks.com

If you like your weeknight dinners to be Quick and Easy but still real tasty, like we do, then this one will definitely the bill. 

I timed it and it took 25 minutes. And that was starting with frozen chicken tenders.

So let’s get our Quick and Easy One Pot Weeknight Dinner going.

Put the chicken in the microwave to thaw out.  Cut the potato into bite size pieces.

Put a skillet on at medium high and swirl in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.

When the chicken tenders have thawed put them in the skillet and add the potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cut up the veggies. Tonight we have onions, tomatoes, asparagus, zucchini and garlic but any vegetables will work just fine. The only thing to remember is that some cook quicker than others and should be added to the pan last.

So with this ensemble we are going to put in the onions, asparagus and the zucchini and hold the garlic and tomatoes back.

Salt and pepper the new arrivals. When the onions start to get translucent push everything off towards the sides of the skillet and put the garlic in the bare spot  left in the middle. 

Squeeze some lemon juice on the garlic and put the tomatoes on top.

One Pan Oven Baked Chicken Dinner – 30 Minutes

 

You could catch up on other stuff while this One Pan Oven Baked Chicken Dinner is in the oven. It’s great for a busy weeknight while still being a very tasty and healthy supper.

One Pan Oven Baked Chicken Dinner-5-poppopcooks.com

 

Set your oven at 400°F. On a dishwasher safe cutting board slice the boneless skinless chicken breast in half horizontally resulting in two thin filets. Cover them with plastic wrap and pound them to a more even thickness with the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin or the bottom of a sauce pan.  Or, just go with chicken tenders.

One Pan Oven Baked Chicken Dinner-poppopcooks.com

 

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. Lay the chicken filets in the pan and lightly sprinkle salt, pepper and dried rosemary onto both sides. Ya know,, after the salt and pepper you can get creative and spice up the filets any way that YOU want i.e. garlic powder, red pepper flakes, dried basil, paprika, cumin, turmeric and on and on. Tonight we just went with dried rosemary leaves and it worked out real good. Cut the stump ends off of the asparagus spears and then into about 2″ pieces. Cut the potatoes into small chunks and and spread them both around outside of the chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until the filets are firm to a poke or the liquid is running clear or the internal temperature is 170°F on an instant read meat thermometer.

Move your One Pan Oven Baked Chicken Dinner to plates and enjoy your quick and easy meal.

A California Chardonnay or an Italian Soave would go great.
