Disclaimer: This is a meal I’ve made many times before, but I was given the opportunity by Klondike Potatoes and Johnny’s Fine Foods to spice it up using their products. All opinions are my own.
I’m a college student, meaning my grocery budget is small and my time is limited. On most days, I get home from campus around 3pm, get the mail, reply to emails, interact on Twitter, and grab a snack. Then, it’s time to think about what to make for dinner. Most nights I’ve got an hour or two of homework to get done, so it has to be something that’s easy and doesn’t take much time to put together.
My roommate and I have a few favorite “go-to” dishes and almost of them are chicken dinners. Why? Well, because chicken breasts can be purchased frozen in huge bags for about $8. Then in the morning before I leave, I set a few out to defrost while I’m on campus. By the time I get home, the chicken breasts are thawed and ready to use when dinner time rolls around.
This one-pan garlic chicken & potato dinner is a new favorite because it takes under 10 minutes to prepare and the ingredients are things you already have on hand. It takes about an hour to bake in the oven, so relax and watch some TV while your dinner cooks!
One-Pan Garlic Chicken & Potatoes
made with Klondike potatoes and Johnny’s seasonings
- 1 lb. chicken breasts, thawed
- 6 medium red potatoes, cubed
- 1/2 c. unsalted butter, sliced
- 1 tsp. Johnny’s seasoning salt
- 2 tsp. Johnny’s garlic spread seasoning
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place thawed chicken breasts down the middle of a glass casserole dish.
2. Cut six medium red potatoes into small cubes.
3. Arrange the cubed potatoes on both sides of the chicken breasts.
4. Sprinkle Johnny’s seasoning salt over the chicken ONLY. Then, sprinkle Johnny’s garlic seasoning over the chicken and potatoes.
5. Slice butter and arrange over the entire pan. Cover the pan with foil and bake for one hour at 350 degrees.
I love how easy this dinner is to put together, plus it’s delicious and you can customize it to your liking. Swap out half of the potatoes for green beans. Or swap out half of the potatoes for baby carrots. Or if you don’t eat green beans or carrots (that would be me!) then just use all potatoes!
I was given the opportunity by Klondike and Johnny’s seasonings to spice up a dinner of my choice using their potatoes and seasonings. And guess what? They’re opening up this amazing opportunity to all of YOU!
