Sometimes you just need something simple and one-pot-meals are the way to go! I am discovering that there are many meals that can be done this way. Today we are looking at chicken and potatoes, but if you are interested in a pasta dish try this one from Martha Stewart.
One Pot Chicken and Potatoes
Time: 1 1/2 Hours
Meal: To show you how simple one-pot-meals are I just threw this one together last night and you can do it too! I used:
4 skinless Chicken Thighs
1 small bag of little red potatoes cut each in half
1 onion chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup orange juice
Penzeys Cajun Style Seasoning
salt and pepper
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
In an oven safe pan saute the onion in 1/2 of the Olive Oil until translucent and move to the side of the pan. Add remaining olive oil and sear the chicken until lightly browned on each side and remove from the pan. Add the potatoes and mix in with the onions and sprinkle the spices to taste. Place the chicken on top of the potatoes and season with more of the Penzeys spices to taste. Add broth and juice to the pan and lightly spray the potatoes and tops of chicken with cooking spray. Bake 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours until the chicken is done.
I used some spice blends that I had from Penzeys Spices, but you could use any spice you like. You could try lemon and Rosemary, Curry, BBQ seasoning; the possibilities are limitless!
Review: I like the spices from Penzeys, they seem fresh and there is a good selection and are full of aroma and taste! Spices are a great way to lower the fat in cooking by adding depth of flavor. Don’t be afraid to experiment, your new favorite is waiting for you!
I served this with the curried carrots from last week!
I hope you enjoy!
