Simple Baked Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes

Posted by on May 19, 2016 in Chicken, Cooking, Dinner, Featured, Veggies


Here is a great meal for those busy weeknights!  It is so simple but tastes great and is very versatile.  I don’t think I’ve ever had green beans baked like this and they were so good!  They were also the first things my kids ate, which is a good sign. :)  I think you could easily use chicken strip pieces or breast halves, but I was late getting dinner together and needed it to cook fast!  If you’re in the same late boat as me, simply dice your chicken prior to cooking.  One thing I’ll say, is make sure your potatoes are not too big if you chop the chicken.  My pieces of chicken were smaller so they actually cooked faster than the potatoes.  Feel free to add your own seasonings and spices to suit your taste!

(Here’s a picture before I baked it.  You can see how much seasonings I put on etc!)



Simple Baked Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes

(serves 4-6)

Olive oil or coconut oil

4 chicken breasts (or 8 thin sliced breasts or strip pieces.  Chop them up into nugget size pieces if you like!)

1 1/2-2 cups of fresh green beans (don’t forget to trim the ends!)

1 1/2-2 cups of mixed red,yellow, & purple potatoes

salt & pepper, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese, season salt, whatever else sounds good!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil over a cookie sheet.

Arrange the green beans, chicken, and potatoes on the cookie sheet and make sure they are lightly coated with the oil.  You may need to drizzle a little more oil on but don’t go too crazy or everything with taste oily!

Sprinkle salt, pepper, seasoning salt, italian seasoning, and grated parmesan generously over everything.

Bake for 25 minutes then check to make sure the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are done.  If you are using large pieces you may need another 5-10 minutes depending on what size your chicken and potatoes are.  Serve immediately!
