This one pan chicken and potato recipe is a by far the most cooked meal in my kitchen. My husband absolutely loves this dish. He’s such a simple guy. As long as there’s some kind of meat and some sort of potatoes, he’s good to go. If I know I’ll be busy in the evening, I like to prepare the meat and veggies ahead of time. That way, all I have to do is toss it in the pan and let the stove top and oven do all the work.
