I gotta say, this one surprised me. When I initially saw it, I happened to have everything on hand, so I thought I’d try it. It seemed easy enough and, if nothing else, would be a decent week day meal. We all really enjoy it. Like, a lot. And- it’s a complete meal! You get your meat and your side dish!

I also like this one because it makes a lot. A lot of my recipes only serve 4, this one has 8 pieces of chicken so it’s great for having guests over.

Also, there is a lot of room to switch it up. I added more broccoli this time because I really liked the broccoli flavor. But you could add cauliflower, just incorporate one veggie, etc.

I do recommend halving the potatoes- some of them were a little harder than they should be…
