Easy Baked Chicken Dinner and Vegetables



We cook almost every night and sometimes I am just not "feeling" it and need something easy to cook? As the guy from the new movie "We're The Millers" would say, "know what I'm sayin'?" Side note: We saw that movie last night, it was hilarious! Highly recommend it! Anyway, yes, this is our go-to easy chicken dinner!

This would also be great to bring over for a family who may have their hands full and could use the friendly help.

Easy Baked Chicken Dinner and Vegetables

Ingredients:



Package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Green Vegetables of your choice (I used broccoli and carrots, have done this before with green beans, even canned veggies! )
Potatoes (I use the red potatoes)
1 stick of butter
1 package of Italian Dressing Mix (I used zesty Italian)
Foil

Directions:
1.) Place chicken breasts in center of a 9x13 baking dish
2.) Cube the potatoes and place on one side, place vegetables on other side
3.) Sprinkle packet of Italian dressing over chicken and vegetables
4.) Melt butter and pour on top
5.) Cover with foil and back at 350 degrees for 1 hour



And voila, that's it! A super easy baked chicken dish. We make this often and change up the vegetables and seasoning. 

Sometimes my vicious sugar addiction kicks in after eating this and I end up craving something cookie-ish! I have made after this chicken dish several times M&M Cookie Bars and if I feel like only wanting the dough, I'll make edible cookie dough!  Gosh, I am so bad and really need to kick this sugar habit! Any tips?

  1. Made this tonight. Took a little longer than an hour, but oven times vary. Yummy, easy to prepare, little clean up!

    1. Glad you liked it! From my experience I found depending on the veggies (especially potatoes) and how big you cut them can make a difference in the timing too :)

  12. I bet onions would be good in this too! :)

  13. In the oven now. I used fresh carrots and green beans. Also didn't have Italian dressing packet so I improvised with various seasonings I found, plenty of olive oil and a healthy splash of balsamic vinegar. I anticipate it taking longer than an hour to cook but will keep an eye on it. Thanks for the idea - great recipe to build from and get creative!

    ReplyDelete
  14. we did this with green beans and the Italian seasoning and my son wasn't a fan of the Italian seasoning. What would be another good seasoning to try?

    ReplyDelete
  15. We just had this for supper. It was amazing:-) Thanks so much for the recipe- even my super picky 2 year old cleaned his plate!!

  17. I make something similar to this but I pour a little bit of olive oil and lemon juice and I sprinkle some Parsley and parmesan cheese over the chicken, much healthier than using a whole stick of butter

  20. HUGE hit with my picky family and so easy for me. Thanks

  21. I wonder if one could use Mrs. Dash seasoning instead of the Italian seasonings in a pack? Maybe mix it with vegetable oil instead of butter? No salt with Mrs. Dash.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What about using the crock pot? Would it be the same directions? 4 hours?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just made this tonight, using frozen broccoli and cauliflower, a ranch packet, and coconut oil instead of butter. It did need to cook for an extra 30 minutes, but my chicken breasts were fairly large. I thought it turned out great and the boyfriend liked it too! So easy...I'll definitely make this again.
