Italian Chicken, Green Bean & Potato Casserole

I’m about to change your life.

Okay, not really - but maybe! Today on the blog I am sharing one of our fool-proof dinner favorites. The prep-time is less than 10 minutes, it’s a casserole (which means you can make it ahead if you need to), and best of all, my toddler LOVES IT. If you have a toddler, maybe yours will too :)

Allow me to introduce you to this delicious dish: Italian Chicken, Green Bean, and Red Potato Casserole.

What you Need:
+ 1 packet of Italian dressing seasoning
+ 1 stick of butter (or you can substitute coconut oil for the butter)
+ 3 to 4 chicken breasts
+ Two cans of green beans (fresh or frozen green beans are even better!)
+ 8 - 10 red potatoes

What you Do:
+ This recipe is so simple! First, you need to scrub your potatoes and then dice them. I leave the skins on, but it’s your preference. Line up your freshly diced potatoes on one side of the casserole dish.
+ Cut your chicken breasts in half. Line them up in the center of the casserole dish.
+ Fill in the remaining space with green beans.
+ Melt the stick of butter and pour it all over the beans, chicken, and potatoes.
+ Sprinkle the contents of the Italian seasoning packet over everything.
+ Cover with foil.
+ Bake at 350° for at least an hour. You'll know it’s done when the potatoes are soft. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer than an hour. If it is taking longer than an hour, you can turn up the temperature to 375 degrees or so.
+ Enjoy!

This is one of our favorite meals to make during the week because it doesn't take long to prepare (I usually get it ready on Sundays, so we can pop it in the oven as soon as we get home from work on Monday.)

If you think you want to try this recipe, be sure to pin it for later! What are you having for dinner tonight?
