One Pot Weeknight Chicken Dinner will be….
….real good on the weeknight that you make it and also the leftovers will be great as a lunch at work or as a “weeknight nuke it no brainer” on one of those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking.
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.
When they have browned add the carrots, salt, pepper and dried basil.
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.
A nice chardonnay goes along real good with your One Pot Weeknight Chicken Dinner.
