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…

…..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.

Stir in the parmesan and it’s ready to enjoy! Top it off with a little more grated parmesan when you serve it.

Pork Tenderloin Steaks-5-poppopcooks.com-pork tenderloin recipes-pork fillet recipes-cooking pork tenderloin-pork recipes

Easy Pork Tenderloin Steaks with…

….Red Wine Balsamic Glaze is…

…not complicated. It is a snap! And,, you can easily multi task and put together the veggies along with Pork Tenderloin Steaks in under 30 minutes.

Put two skillets on the stove. One at medium and one at medium high. Eyeball enough olive oil in each to barely cover the bottoms.

We had some pearl onions leftover from a big batch of caramelized pearl onions that I had made for some family guests.

We always have baby carrots and frozen peas so that’s what we’re going to put together along with the Pork Tenderloin Steaks.

No cleaning or peeling necessary.

Pork Tenderloin Steaks-9-poppopcooks.com-pork tenderloin recipes-pork fillet recipes-cooking pork tenderloin-pork recipes

Just put them in the skillet set at medium. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper and toss or gently stir a few times as they cook.

Pork Tenderloin Steaks-poppopcooks.com-pork tenderloin recipes-pork fillet recipes-cooking pork tenderloin-pork recipes

With a sharp knife trim the silver skin off the tenderloin and cut into 1″ thick steaks. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and powdered garlic then add them to the skillet.

About 3-5 minutes a side depending on how well done that YOU like them.

Still soft to a finger poke is rare – starting to get firm is medium and firm is well done.

With an instant read meat thermometer 145°F is rare – 160 is medium and 170 is well done.

When the second side is almost done add the red wine and the balsamic vinegar. Bring the liquids up to a fast simmer and reduce the heat just enough to maintain the simmer.

One Pot Chicken Tenders Meal-3-poppopcooks.com-Quick and Easy Recipe-Gluten Free-One Pot

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.
