Some nights you just need something so super easy to make that doesn’t cause a lot of mess and still tastes amazing! One Pot Wonders is a huge part of the theory behind my cookbook – Homemade on a Weeknight. It’s all about making real food quickly so you can enjoy your evening with your family and know you feed them a good meal! I have put together this collection of the Chicken One Pot Wonders directly from my cookbook!
All four of these recipes have Chicken in them – two with Chicken Sausage and two with Chicken Thighs. We eat a lot of chicken in my house – but rarely is it some boring baked chicken breast. I actually prefer Chicken Thighs because they have more flavor. And Chicken Sausage is such a great way to get awesome flavors on your plate without the weird fillers of hot dogs. I usually get Adelis or Open Nature brands, they both have good ingredients.
- Ooey Gooey Cheesy Chicken & Spinach Orzo – Who does not love cheesy goodness? Adding the spinach makes sure the kids are eating their veggies and orzo is a fun pasta to eat. My kids – and husband – always eat every last bit of this meal. It is quick, it is easy, and it is ooey gooey cheesy goodness.
2. Sweet Potato Skillet – Sweet Potatoes make the perfect – healthier – base for just about any skillet. Mixed with some yummy Chicken Sausage and topped off with a little mozzarella makes this dish so very yummy – and quick.
3. One Pot Spanish Chicken & Rice – When you can put all of your ingredients in a single pan or pot and walk away to help with homework or get the laundry folded or watch an episode of your fave show – it is a win! This dish has so much flavor packed into it – it will taste like you slaved over the hot stove for hours.
4. Cheesy Chicken Sausage Pasta – This one pot wonder packs so much flavor and a little kick of spice. The diced tomatoes and red pepper flakes combined with the cheesy goodness over pasta make a great weeknight dish. It is simple to pull together and done in less than 30 minutes.
