This recipe is so Simple and Easy you can manage to make an excellent meal in about 30 minutes or so in one skillet!When I am choosing a recipe for our family dinner, I look for a few things. Is it Healthy? Can I find all of the ingredients easily? Are the parts costly? Is it going to be time-consuming or messy? The last thing I want to deal with is a recipe that isn’t healthy, or I can’t find the ingredients, and they cost an arm and a leg. Let alone after a long day that recipe being so time-consuming and a huge mess to clean up when dinner is over.

A few weeks back, I was swamped. I was trying to get several things accomplished around my house and noticed  I had very little on hand in the refrigerator from not shopping that week. I did have chicken, potatoes, carrots, onions, and so forth, but not much else.




Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes

Rummaging through my cabinets, I came across low sodium chicken broth, my typical dried herbs I keep on hand, and, of course, I have a fresh herb garden, so there are always fresh herbs on hand. I thought to myself, and you know what I have an idea. I keep seeing all these One Pots and One Skillet meals on the web. Just the other day, my buddy Dina from Kitchen Dreaming did one as well.

Of course, I immediately searched out one of my favorite,  trusty metal skillets, started seasoning my chicken, then searing the boneless and skinless chicken, chopping &  slicing my vegetables, tossed in my on-hand ingredients, herbs and spices, brought it to a simmer, reduced the heat to low, placed a tight-fitting lid on, and relaxed for about 22 minutes while it cooked.  Now the question in my head, How is this going to taste? The answer? BEST One Skillet Meal ever. I swear I received more compliments off of that simple meal made in one skillet for my family.

Since I refuse to place anything on the blog that I haven’t tested and tweaked a few times, I wanted to make it a few more times. Of course, I tweaked a few things from my original Skillet meal, and the result was even better. You will find the tweaked and kitchen-tested version below. If you have 30 minutes to spare, I can promise you it’s going to be one of the better One Skillet Meals you make for your family’s dinner. Be sure to come back and let us know how much you enjoyed it.

    Heidy, whether it’s a pot or a skillet, your One Skillet Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes is a winner winner…well you know the rest! 😉 I feel so sneaky using Rosemary in a dish. I go across the street and pick some (with their permission). I’m always afraid the gardeners are going to question me!
