One Pan Chicken and Vegetables Recipe

This one-pan chicken dinner is delicious and family-friendly. It's a one pan meal with just 6 ingredients! Such an easy dinner idea.

What I love about this dish: it’s a quick and easy one pan chicken dinner; a balanced meal in one pan. How easy is that?! The chicken has a crispy coating and a flavorful center that is sure to please.

Plus, roasting vegetables in the oven brings out their natural sweetness and preserves all of their wonderful nutrition. I’m so happy my son ate his vegetables, even if it meant each bite was dipped in ranch ;).I’m a busy mom with 2 young kids so I’m always on the lookout for easy and healthy family-friendly dinners. Also, I despise dirty dishes.

If you can relate, or if you’re just a little “hangry” right now, this recipe is for you! Big-‘ol thank you to the folks at Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® who sponsored this recipe and came up with the seasoning that takes this one pan chicken dinner to a very delicious place.

Ingredients for One Pan Chicken Dinner:

1 (1 oz) packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
1 cup real mayonnaise
1 cup bread crumbs (I used panko crumbs)
4 small/medium (1 1/2 lbs total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 lb small red potatoes, halved or quartered if larger into 3/4″-thick pieces
1 lb baby carrots or slender peeled carrots (1/2″ thick)
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parsley to garnish, optional

This one-pan chicken dinner is delicious and family-friendly. It's a one pan meal with just 6 ingredients! Such an easy dinner idea.

How to Make One Pan Chicken and Veggies:

1. In a large Ziploc bag combine 1 cup mayo and 1 packet ranch seasoning mix (or use a bowl if you’re eager to wash more dishes). Add 4 chicken breasts and squish the bag around to coat chicken. Squeeze excess air out of the bag, seal and refrigerate chicken while prepping veggies.

2. Grease a large (I used 17×11) rimmed cookie sheet with oil (Tip: line baking sheet with foil for even easier cleanup). Place carrots and potatoes on your oiled pan. Drizzle the top with 1 Tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper, or season to taste. Toss veggies on the pan using your hands, then push them to the sides to make room for the chicken, keeping potatoes cut-side down.

3. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Shake off any excess marinade from chicken then dip in bread crumbs, turning to coat evenly. Transfer to baking sheet. It’s ok if veggies are a little crowded but keep at least a sliver of space between chicken breasts for optimal crispiness. Spray or drizzle the chicken with oil if desired to get a golden crust.

This one-pan chicken dinner is delicious and family-friendly. It's a one pan meal with just 6 ingredients! Such an easy dinner idea.

4. Bake at 400˚F for 25-28 min or until chicken reaches internal temp of 165 degrees F, or juices run clear. Turn on the broiler and continue baking 3 min to brown the chicken. Remove from oven, garnish with fresh parsley if desired and serve.
