Hearty Chicken and Potatoes

HEARTY CHICKEN and POTATOES

Unlock Simplicity

Let’s face it. Life is crazy. Up one minute, down the next. Grab a quick coffee, off to work. Meetings, spreadsheets, customers…What are the kids doing? What was that sound? 

Then, at the end of the day, it’s time to get a decent meal on the table, when what you really want to do is lose yourself in a hot bath. Alone. I get it. I do.

It helps to stop, put the heavy stuff down for a minute, and just take a breath. Let’s focus on something easy.

If you still need to get a decent meal on the table, this one-pan chicken and potatoes dish is perfect for those nights when you’re running on a just-about empty tank. One pan, six ingredients and your appetite. That’s it!

Just mix the chicken and potatoes and a few other yummies together in a sheet pan. Throw it in the oven…and go take that bath. When you’re all nice and relaxed, it’ll be comfort food time.
