With our busy weekday schedule, finding a meal that is quick, easy, delicious and good for us is a wonderful feat! I recently came across a one dish meal on Pinterest and decided to put it to the test – I know I’m not the only one with tons of “someday, one day” boards out there.

After a long day at work this past week, I decided to put a recent recipe I’d seen to the test and it turned out to be a hit with the entire family.
Chicken breasts, frozen green beans, small red potatoes, Italian Dressing Season and butter were the only ingredients needed for this meal – all items I already had on hand. The most prep work was washing and cutting the potatoes which took a total of maybe 5-8 minutes.
The chicken breasts went in the middle, frozen green beans on one side and the potatoes on the other. I seasoned a bit with salt and pepper, placed butter squares over the top and the sprinkled the Italian Dressing packet over the top – easy peasy, oven ready! After spending an hour in the oven on 350 degrees, we had this:
By the time homework was finished, dinner was ready to be served. We added slices of cornbread to everyone’s plate and we all agreed this was a winner!
I hope you enjoyed this Making a Happy Home post. One of my focuses this year is home life – specifically spending more quality #FamilyTime together, organization, cooking and pre-planning meals, and decorating. To help with that focus, I challenge myself to post at least 2-3 times a month on something related to home-life.
