easy chicken and veggies

My husband met a family at work whom he provided a service for who are new to the area and told them we'd take them dinner. This is what we took- it was simple to make and tasted great!  Sometimes it's hard to take dinner to a family you don't know but I felt like this was a "you can't go wrong" kind of meal.  We also took some rolls & homemade jam and layered mint brownies.  We sure enjoyed our meal!   I hope they enjoyed theirs.

easy chicken and veggies (adapted from pinterest)
3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, each cut in half
1/2 bag frozen green beans, thawed
1 small head broccoli, cut into pieces
1/2 red pepper, sliced
6-7 fingerling potatoes, sliced or quartered
1 package Italian seasoning dressing mix
1/2 cube butter, melted

In a 9x13 casserole pan,  arrange veggies on one side, chicken in the middle and veggies on the other side.  Sprinkle with Italian dressing mix.  Pour the butter evenly over the top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

What I have to say- the original recipe calls for 2 packages of dressing mix and 1 cup butter.  I definitely think that would be too much dressing mix and I wasn't interested in extra fat grams and calories from the butter.  It really didn't need it.


  1. making this for dinner RIGHT NOW! (but got garden/herb dressing mix instead of italian...)

  2. OOOhhh...herb garden! That sounds good. I'll try that next time!
