 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.

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

One Pan Shrimp Dinner – 20 minutes – Quick and Easy Recipe

One Pan Shrimp Dinner-7-poppopcooks.com-onepot-quick and easy recipes

Your One Pan Shrimp Dinner……

………..will be done and on the table in 20 minutes and it,,is,,good! The shrimp and the gnocchi both cook so fast that it’ll be ready before you know it.

A couple of  tips to get started

  •  Frozen broccoli florets don’t have to cleaned or cut up so they help speed things along.  Peas are even faster.
  •  If you are using frozen shrimp just thaw them out in the microwave. It only takes a minute or 2 and get the ones that have already been peeled and deveined to make things even quicker.

Put a large skillet on at medium high. Swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the broccoli and the chopped garlic then squeeze some lemon juice in and toss in the rind. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes tossing a few times during the process. And……..

 One Pan Shrimp Dinner-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy-gluten free

………..when the broccoli just begins to wilt a little put in the shrimp and the gnocchi. Toss a few times as it all cooks together. 

One Pan Shrimp Dinner-4-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy

When the shrimp start to turn pink add the white wine and ……….

One Pan Shrimp Dinner-5-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy recipe

………cook until the wine has reduced and thickened a little – about 4-5 minutes – stirring a few times.

Then serve up and enjoy your One Pan Shrimp Dinner and the rest of that wine!

Wow! Do you think we just set a record for a quick and easy weeknight meal?
