Family dinner: one pan chicken

One pot chicken

When it comes to weekday dinners, I like them simple, healthy and easy to clean up after. Anything I can make in just one pan or pot makes me very happy, and this super easy chicken and veggie dish fits the bill. Are you trying to conceive, pregnant, nursing or just a very busy mama? Then you know how important it is to eat a good serving of protein at every meal. Every cell in the human body requires protein; protein helps your body to repair cells and create new ones and it is especially important during pregnancy. Chicken is a great source of protein, and we try to have it at least once a week.

Ingredients (to serve four):

Four free range and antibiotic free chicken breasts cut into large pieces

Four large sweet potatoes peeled and chopped

A cup of fresh green beans

A clove or two of garlic

Place all the ingredients in a oven safe pan, drizzle generously with olive oil, and season with pink salt and pepper. Bake in the oven at 200C for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is tender, and the sweet potatoes are soft.

You can serve this with a salad, but I just stuck some cherry tomatoes in a bowl this time around, and we had fresh peaches for pudding for some extra nutrients and antioxidants. A really delicious and easy meal for the most basic cook (that would be me). You’re welcome!
