Easy and Delicious Meals

Our evenings are usually busy, especially now that back to school is here. Meals have to be easy. It doesn’t get easier than preparing a one-pan chicken dinner that is ready in no time. We started by prepping. Mimi helped with the green beans and Gabby helped with the potatoes.

We seasoned the chicken in a separate bowl and then lined a pan with tinfoil for easy cleanup. Our plan was to cook a lean meat, vegetable, and potatoes. Something wholesome and that hits the spot every time. Depending on how much time you have, you can choose to marinate the chicken overnight. Otherwise, you can marinate it for 1-2 hours or in a pinch for 20 minutes. We always add amino acids for umami and make sure all of the meat is covered in spices well.

Simply Delicious!

After we marinated the chicken, cut the potatoes and green beans, we laid them flat on the lined pan. We drizzled them with extra virgin olive oil, our house blend of spices, and parmesan cheese. Our house blend consists of garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, paprika, chili powder, pink Himalayan, and salt and pepper.

Then we smothered the top of the chicken with lots of minced garlic. This is completely based on preference. Use as little or as much as you want. As you can see, we are garlic lovers! Read on below for the full recipe.
