    Wow..that is awesome! I love one pot dishes.

    • Yvonne


      I am wondering if Bacon bits would add a nice touch to this…

  • JMc


    Looks simple and delicious! Just what I look for with dinner recipes! :)

  • Auntie


    Thanks, Julie! This was so easy to make and yet it looked like I spent hours making this beautiful meal. My family loved it and has requested I make it again. Plus it really was as pretty as the picture shows! Love it!

  • Alyssa


    Yummy, this is one of my favorite– and easiest recipes!! I add breadcrumbs to top of chicken and chop garlic and throw it in there! I spice it up pretty good also before putting Italian seasoning over it all!!!

    • Julie


      Oh those additions sound great! I’ll have to try those next time!

  • Jennifer


    what type of potatoes did you use? Regular russet?

    • Julie


      I think I used russet but I think you could use red too!

  • Erin


    I found this on pinterest & have tried it 3 ways, whole stick of butter, 1/2 a stick, and just a little bit of oil. My fave is the oil. I felt like there was just too much butter before.
    I like the other commenter’s suggestion of adding breadcrumbs!

    • Julie


      That is so good to know! How much oil did you use?

  • lisa


    Very good!! Agreed, could cook with less butter and probably have great flavor still, but this way was excellent!! I cooked 1 hr with foil and added 20 min at end uncovered. Also sprinkled a small amount of parmesan cheese on chicken and potatoes. Empty pan …full bellies x5 :)

    • Julie


      Oh Parmesan can’t go wrong with that!

  • Erin


    It probably would have been helpful for me to measure the oil but I didn’t. I just drizzled a little on, enough to coat & allow the seasoning to stick. The Parmesan cheese that Lisa added sounds good!

    • Julie


      Perfect thanks for the info!

  • Amanda


    Do you think this would work with pork chops and other seasonings besides the Italian packet?
    Amanda recently posted..Chicken Potato Corn Soup (Crock Pot) RecipeMy Profile

    • Julie


      I would sure think so! Just make sure to adjust the time to the cook your pork chops and also not over cook them :)

      • Amanda


        Thanks I will give it a try!

  • Sami


    I only have canned green beans… do you think that will make a difference?
    Also did you use oil instead of butter or both together?

    • Julie


      I’ve only used fresh green beans, my thoughts is that they might get mushy because they don’t need to cook as long maybe? I’ve only used the butter on it. I’ve never tried oil but someone else has and commented on this post they just drizzled the oil over the ingredients.

      • Leslie


        I used canned green beans and it was good. I am making it tonight and plan to season the chicken more with some salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning. That is just our personal preference though.

        • Julie


          Good to know Leslie!

          • Leslie


            I ended up cooking the green beans separately because we had guests and my dish wasn’t big enough for all of it. I added the cajun seasoning and a little garlic salt to the chicken and potatoes before I put them in the pan. Then I sprinkled the packet of seasoning over the entire thing. I used unsalted butter since I used so much seasoning. (I wish I had taken some earlier advice and used about half of what I used!) It was very good!

        • Chrystal


          How many cans of green beans did you use?

          • Leslie


            I used 2 cans. :)

  • Bonnie


    I made this tonight. Amazing! Don’t hesitate to try it.

    • Julie


      Awesome Bonnie!

  • nora


    In the city I live the italian dressing mix isn’t for sale. How can I do it myself? Thank you very much Julie.

  • Diane


    I made this last night and it was DELICIOUS! I did the same thing you did i pinned this recipe a while ago and never made it. But I’m glad it tasted so good! The only complaint I had was the chicken was pretty dry/tough….I baked for an hour at the 350 I wonder if next time I should do onle 45mins?

    • Julie


      Pinterest is the best invention for women EVER! Did you cover it with foil? That could cause it to dry out if you skipped that step….

    • Betty Barry


      I put my chicken in frozen. Comes out perfect. Mine took a little longer than 1 hour. Just test it. If chickens done, it’s yummy. I make this all the time. Chicken is tender and real juicy
      .. I use frozen green beans and red potatoes.. :)

  • Jen


    I am making this tonight (late) for when my hubs gets off work. Cannot wait! May try a small but of oil on the bottom and butter on top… not sure yet. I will definitely let you know how it comes out.

  • Jen


    *bit

  • Bailey


    I am not a big fan of green beans, any other vegetables that would work instead?

    • Leslie


      Bailey, I read somewhere that you could use broccoli. When I cooked it, I didn’t have room for the green beans in the pan so I just cooked the chicken and potatoes with the same seasonings and butter. If you did that, you could just cook a vegetable you like separately or even a salad would be great! Hope that helps!!

      • Christine


        I’m trying broccoli with it tonight.

    • Julie


      A couple other people said they thought maybe broccoli or asparagus would work well?

      • Brenda


        It is great with asparagus too.

    • Tara


      My husband doesn’t like green beans so we used baby carrots and it was delicious! Turned out fabulous! =)

    • Jen


      I just made this tonight! I’ve used a variety of fresh vegetables and everything seems to work. We did a broccoli/cauliflower mix and chopped up sweet potato this time. I’m anxious to try the breadcrumbs!

  • Jen


    It was PERFECT and oh so simple. I bet asparagus would be good in this recipe too! The hubs loved it!

  • Cassandra


    Do you think using Italian salad dressing would work?

    • jade


      I would think it would work okay, but i wouldn’t use any butter or oil and try not to use too much.

  • Laura


    Had this for dinner.. it was sooo good. Didn’t have the Italian packet so just used garlic, salt, pepper and red chili pepper flakes. Used 1/2 stick butter and just a tiny bit of Olive Oil. It was so simple and had so much flavor. Used yukon gold potatoes. My new favorite and go to for a simple but yummy meal! Thank you!!

  • Erica


    This was yummy but I didnt have italian mix but I took the idea and used liptins onion mix. Yummers!!!! I am sure the italian mix would have been just as good

  • Cindy


    I’m wondering if you could substitute sweet potatoes for the russet potatoes….has anyone tried that?

    • Lyndsay


      I tried it with sweet potatoes and it was delicious! I was worried that the italian seasoning wouldn’t pair well with the sweet potato but it did! I think I like it even better than other potatoes. I have used pork chops instead of chicken too and it was tasty! The possibilities with this dish are endless!!

      • April


        I used sweet potatoes and russet. I just microwaved them for four minutes before putting everything in the oven. I actually liked the sweet potatoes better.

    • Jen


      I love this with sweet potatoes. I usually just cut the pieces up a little smaller to make sure they get done.
      Jen recently posted..After the IntermissionMy Profile

  • Natalie


    I used frozen chicken and ended up having to double the cook time. Also, I used only half of a stick of butter and canned green beans, and it was still wonderful!!! Will make this again!

    • Natalie


      And we had red potatoes! Everything was great!

  • Melissa Mellor


    Can the chicken be frozen at first does it need to be thawed?

    • Julie


      I would do thawed. If if it is frozen it will take a lot longer to cook through.

  • Amber


    im making it right now!. so simple and looks delicous. waiting for it to get done so i could try it.
    Im using italian style mix instead of the dressing mix. i got them confussed but i think its going to be even better.

    • Julie


      I think you will be just fine! You can really use any seasonings you’d like :)

  • Christina


    I am doing this now an when the hour was up nothing was even halfway done :-(. I’m confident it wasn’t my oven. Not sure what I did wrong.

    • Julie


      Hmmm a ton of people have made it and no one has ever said that. Maybe the size of your chicken breasts or the amount you put in the pan? The more you put in that longer it would take to heat or the larger the pieces the longer it would take to cook through. That’s my only guesses!

      • BrendaS


        I’m having the same issue… thawed chicken, beans and potatoes.. nothing was even remotely cooked. Chicken was still cold in the center. Used a 9×13 dish. I came here to see if I did something wrong. :( And my oven is brand new.

    • amy


      i had the SAME issue. just made it….chicken was not frozen….its been an hour and a half and only the chicken is done!!!!! really irritated. never making again.

      • Leslie


        Did you cover it with foil? If not, it will take longer!

  • kate bax


    Should I add the green beans later? I feel like if they cook for an hour they will shrivel. Thoughts?

    • Julie


      I added my fresh green beans right at the beginning and I had no problems!

  • Sarah


    I used frozen green beans – everything else was thawed – after an hour the chicken that was on the same side as the green beans was still raw! Will try it again with fresh ones…but I just wanted to warn everyone!

    • Julie


      It might because you had something that was frozen in there and it took the temperature down and therefore takes longer to cook through. I did it with fresh green beans and thawed chicken and it works perfectly!

  • Bridget


    Made this tonight & let me tell easy peasy & very tasty! Ill be making this again! Thanks!

  • Bobi Rogers


    I tried this recipe tonight as initially stated plus Italian breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese and it was FABULOUS!! Added 10 minutes on the hour when I added the Parmesan cheese just to make sure chicken was done!! We will be making this again.

    • Julie


      Ohhh that sounds like fabulous additions! Thanks for sharing Bobi!

  • Julie


    This recipe looks so good. Thinking about making it sometime this week. But, Do you really not have to add any water or anything ? Just afraid things would burn or stick..

    • Julie


      Nope just put it in exactly like the recipe. You can read the other comments to get more ideas on adapting the recipe!

  • Julie


    Trying this tonight! Thanks…it looks yummy and easy.

    • Julie


      Hope you enjoyed it Julie!

  • Cathleen


    I just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I did deviate from the recipe because I read the recipe wrong. Instead of buying Italian dressing mix, I bought Italian dressing…oops. I seasoned everything with salt, pepper & garlic, then poured about half the bottle of Italian dressing over it all, and omitted the butter altogether. Everyone loved it, including the kids! I did have to cook it an hour and a half instead of just the hour, but very yummy!

    • Julie


      Oh that sounds great! I often marinate chicken in Italian Dressing and then grill it so I would guess it would be similar!

  • gina


    Just made this tonight and it was amazing! I added a little garlic salt and pepper. Very easy and very good”.

  • G


    as a fairly accomplished cook this is a great idea, something i never thought of before too. its very versatile as long as you use the three base ingredients — potatoes, green beans, and chicken all take approimately the same time to cook as long as you get the potatoes and chicken pieces roughly the same size. i would probably leave it uncovered — i don’t like covering anything. splash some sherry or wine or water or juice in the bottom to keep everything moist.
    i think people with cooking time problems are crowding smaller baking pans, the deeper it gets the longer you would have to cook it.
    the breadcrumbs idea is great, but i would pan-fry them with a little oil until it toasts and put it over after to serve for a really attractive presentation. its super easy, and you can add a little extra spice if you like. you have no idea how much flavor toasted bread crumbs can add until you have some. with a little paprika its a staple condiment in polish food and used in italian too, especially with green beans.

  • Jessica


    I made this today and I added some baby carrots and instead of Italian dressing mix I used Grill Mates Tomato, Garlic & Basil Marinade. I just mixed the marinade as instructed, poured it over just the chicken. Cooked for 1 hour and 15 min at 350 and wonderful!! Thanks for this! I can’t wait to try with all different seasonings. Served this with garlic & cheese biscuits. YUM!

    • Julie


      I love that this recipe is so adaptable as you found out too!

  • Sara


    Trying this tonight for my family of six! Excited it smells so yummy!!!

  • sara


    I made this last night and it was a hit! My husband hates baked chicken but loved this! Thanks so much for sharing it!

    • Julie


      So glad to hear that Sara!

  • Courtney


    Just put this in the oven, hope It turns out good!

  • Courtney


    Omg. Amazing! I used red potatoes am frozen green beans and 1/2 a stick of butter. Was in for about 45 minutes. It’s perfect!

  • Emily


    I made 2 versions of this tonight. For starters I used 2 smaller pans, small russet potatoes, 5 quartered in each, and canned green beans. In one pan I used Italian seasoning on the chicken and then sprinkled the potatoes, in the other I sliced 2 large lemons, put a few on the bottom under the chicken, some in between and then a couple on top. Both turned out really well!!!

  • Lynne


    The original recipe I was going to try called for lemons. After reading the reviews I decided not to make it. I had all the ingredients ready to go just needed a recipe to match. I am so glad I ran across this recipe.

    I made some minor additions. I sprinkled garlic and onion powder over everything before I did the butter and dressing. I checked it at 1 hour but the green beans were not cooked. I ended up cooking it for 1 hour and 20 minutes and then I removed the foil and let it cook for 10 more minutes. It is by far one of the best recipes I’ve tried. I think I am going to try and fix it in the crockpot next time and see what happens. I’ll update everyone on how that goes.

  • Heather


    Best and easiest recipe on Pinterest! I used canned green beans and parboiled red potatoes first! I will definitely make it again!

    • Julie


      Great to know Heather!

  • Michelle


    Only used half stck of butter. Think next time I might marinade the chix in fat free Italian dressing and then use a wee bit of olive oil on the potatoes and green beans with the dry seasoning. Used fresh green beans and 1.5 lbs chix and one hour uncovered was perfect.

    • Julie


      So glad to hear it works with less butter!

  • michelle l


    We’ve made it once it was delicious making again for dinner thanks for sharing
    Michelle

  • Lisa Sparks


    Do you think this could be done in a crockpot?

  • Amy E


    I made this and it was the best meal we had had in ages!!!!

    • Julie


      Glad to hear it Amy!

  • Abbie


    Oh my gosh. I’m in love with this. Unused half the butter, added garlic powder salt and pepper to all of it before I did the other seasoning packet. And I took the foil off and cooked 10 minutes longer WITH some of that velveeta quest blanco on top of the chicken. And it was delicious. Will be doing this again. A million more times. :)

    • Julie


      I definitely need to try it with half the butter!

  • Ashley


    I would love to know if anyone tried this in a crockpot! Sounds delicious and I can’t wait to try it.

  • Sharon


    This dish is definitely a huge hit! :)

    After reading the comments I went with half a stick of butter, and just used 3/4 of the Italian seasoning bc I had only chicken and potatoes in my large dish. I also opted using asparagus instead of green beans in a small side dish. Popped the main dish in for an hour and added the asparagus for the last ten minutes (also upped the temp to 375 for the last ten minutes). Turned out fabulous and unfortunately had no left overs. Will make more next time!

    • Julie Evink


      Oh asparagus sounds great as different veggie with it!

  • Megan


    I cooked this last night and it was good. I used canned green beans and they came out really good. I had too many potatoes so it took a little longer for them to cook so I took the chicken out and cooked for 20 mins more. I didn’t want to overcook the chicken. My husband liked it too but asked if I could use seaoning next time because it was missing something, for him. All in all we really enjoyed it and I wll be cooking this more often and maybe adding a few things here and there. I can’t wait to try some of your other items!!

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed it Megan! If you like Asparagus someone just commented that it works out good with that too!

  • Nancy


    Thanks for all the great suggestions….if you wait a while you get several good ideas….trying this with salad dressing and a bit of butter on potatoes and canned green beans….also added the Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs and even mixed a few french fried onions into the green beans….in the oven….Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    • Julie Evink


      Those sound like fantastic additions!

  • April


    I was going to make this with split bone in chicken breast with skin. Should I not add much olive oil or butter, maybe just over the veggies? I don’t have any Italian dressing mix, but I do have Ranch dressing mix. Has anyone tried this?

    • Julie Evink


      I’m not much help on this one April :( I would think Ranch dressing mix would work perfectly though. It’s just a different seasoning and am all about Ranch!

      • April


        The Ranch seasoning worked great. I also used just a little of Old Bay seasoning, not too much. I didn’t have green beans so I used asaragus and garlic cloves. The split chicken breast were very good. But you didn’t have to add much oil or butter. I uncovered it during the last half hour so the skin would brown. Thanks for the recipe!!

  • Jason


    When it says 1 PK Italian dressing do you make the dressing first or just sprinkle the packet on top? If you have to make it could you just use Italian dressing already made?

    • Julie Evink


      It’s an prepared packet, but you can sub out for Italian Dressing already made, read the other comments for more ideas!

  • Catherine


    Hmm, thinking of delivering this as a post surgery meal. But worried it will dry out on reheating. Not keen on delivering while the chicken is still raw-unless I we for a fact they were going to cook right away.

  • Brenda


    Awesomeness! I have made it twice using the homemade Italian Dressing Mix. Easy, easy one pan dish!

  • Lani W


    After cooking it the required one hour, I took the foil off and sprinkled
    Panko breadcrumbs and a small amount of cheese on the chicken…..
    FABULOUS!!!! Thank you!!!

  • Katie


    I made this for dinner tonight and it is so amazing! I am a busy college student and am always looking for good meals that are simple to make. This recipe is definitely one! Plus there are plenty of leftovers for lunches! :)

    • Julie Evink


      Glad to hear it Katie! Hope you find some more easy recipes here!

  • Lorraine


    Just made this tonight – delicious! I used 3/4 of a stick of butter and it turned out just fine. I also only cooked it for 50 minutes and everything was well done. Will definitely be making again at my college – perfect dorm meal!

  • Nicole Malin


    I tried this recipe today and it was amazing. Next time I think I will use less butter but it was exactly what I was looking for, simple, easy and delicious!

  • Jess


    I made this tonight and it was really good. I used 1 stick of butter and it was great!

  • Shelly


    Love this! Used olive oil, not butter. And I didn’t have a season packet so I used the link you suggested above for dry Italian season. Yum!!

  • Leesha


    I made this tonight. I added fresh garlic and onion to the potatoes and green beans and cut the chicken breasts in half. I only used half the butter. My potatoes were a bit too big and were a little undercooked after the hour, so I removed the chicken and green beans to covered serving dishes, cranked the oven, and cooked them 10 more minutes. This was very good!

  • Sandy


    Tried this tonight. Had my daughter, son-in-law and grandkids over for dinner. Everyone loved it. I had a problem with the potatoes. It took them along time to get done. I cut them in quarters like it said but next time I will cut them smaller. Defiantly a yummy, easy dish!

  • Elizabeth


    I found this on Pinterest and it’s in the oven now. It’s smelling really good. I try to fix an easy meal on the days I have been busy doing laundry, cleaning…so I figured this would be perfect for tonight’s meal! I used a medium sized bag of frozen green beans in mine. I also added some black pepper before pouring on the dressing. I’m fixing some rolls to go along with it..can’t wait to try it!!

  • Stefanie Lyons


    I used half a stck of butter and frozen green beans and it was wonderful. Next time I may usr my own spice mix to cut out some of the salt.

  • Andrea


    Made this last night for dinner, tho I did add minced garlic, some seasonings to the chicken & I used Zesty Itailian Dressing, green beans & potatoes did take a lot longer to cook, but with the chicken in the dressing, everything turned out awesome!! Will make this again, but will blanch the potatoes & veggies in water first or maybe put them in a seperate dish & start cooking them first!!
    But everyone loved this dish & well be making this AGAIN…….thank u for the recipe ;-)

  • shannan


    Stefanie, Wh e n you used frozen greenbeans did you have to cook longer?

  • Elizabeth


    I made this dish one night last week and I figured I couldn’t go wrong with making a one pot dish. I did exactly what the recipe said to do but used a little less butter. I cooked it on the temp it says to, but after an hour the chicken was still raw, potatoes were like they hadn’t even been cooked, the green beans were still tough. So, I cranked the heat up to 400° and checked on it an hour later. The chicken was done by that time, so I wrapped it in foil to stay warm and took the foil off of the baking dish because the potatoes were still very hard. I put this dish in at 3:30 in the afternoon thinking it would be ready by at least 5:30 (when I normally have supper ready) and I kept checking on it every 30 minutes or so and at 6 PM the potatoes were still hard..so I continued to cook them and finally at 7:30 that night the potatoes were done..so I turned the heat back down some and let the oven cool off a bit and put the chicken back in the baking dish to warm back up some more. I found that the dish was way too salty and the chicken was so dry and tough and the potatoes were still not as done as I like them to be. I had to end up throwing most of it away, and we all know that chicken and potatoes don’t run cheap!! I will definately not be making this again.. I fixed some rolls to go along with it and the rolls were the only thing that were good to eat. I told my husband that I didn’t expect him to eat it because I didn’t like it..he said after being married to me almost 7 years I’ve never fixed a bad meal, but to please not fix that again..I promised him I wouldn’t…hope everyone else has better luck with it than I did.

  • Becky


    I think I would like to try this with ham slices, chopped onion and slivered almonds with the green beans and garlic infused olive oil in the potatoes. It sounds delish and it would be a quick easy meals for my family of 6.

  • Amy Sue


    I saw your recipe for 1 pan dinner on pinterest
    and I thought I would give it a try. It was so simple.
    And no one got sick so that means I did it right, correct? ;)
    Thank you for helping me start to cook more. It was fun.

    • Julie Evink


      YAY! If you can manage that dish you are off to the races. I hope you find some more easy dishes!

  • alma


    Hi this looks amazing. I was wondering if there is a fat free substitute for the butter? I have gallbladder issues and have to limit my fat intake. Thanks.

  • Katy Phillips


    Followed the recipe as directed. 50 minutes in and the chicken is raw and the potatoes aren’t cooked :( Gonna try cooking for another 50 minutes at 375 degrees.

    • Katy Phillips


      So, I put it in for an additional 40 minutes at 375 which overcooked the chicken just a bit. I’m thinking maybe my oven is off a bit. The dish was super tasty. Will make again and cook for about 75 – 90 minutes at 350.

  • Nicole Allaire


    I am going to try this tonight and I am thinking of using the ranch packet of seasoning and definitely Parmesan cheese on top.. :)

  • Rachel


    I have heard so many people raving about this recipe so I tried it tonight and I was not impressed. I followed the directions as they were written and the chicken was dry and the potatoes were pretty lackluster. It wasn’t horrible but I won’t be making this again.

  • Holly


    Can you use Chicken Tenders? How long would you cook it?

    • Julie Evink


      I’m sure you could. If they are smaller it might take a little less time. Just watch it like every 5-10 minutes and check on it!

  • riley


    One question: If I am making this just for 2 people and want to use less chicken (probably just 2 breasts) would I cut the cook time in half? Sorry, I’m not much of a cook but am trying to learn.

    • Julie Evink


      It will cook faster I would think. I’d just start watching it after a half hour of cooking time!

  • Meghan


    I have done the original recipe and although it turned out yummy it was a lot of butter. I’m making it again tonight with half the butter and using Ranch mix instead of Italian to mix it up a bit.

  • amy


    seems easy and looks delicious. but just wondering do i bake for the whole hour uncovered?

    • Julie Evink


      Nope it says in the directions to cover with foil!

    I observed my first puppy within a creek, my 2nd and current dog at a German Shepherd rescue that takes dogs that will otherwise be put
    down. I’d die of heartbreak if I lost either to a disaster,
    and hope my little donation will go a bit strategy to helping some others recover their pets.
    Thanks for all you do on the Humane Society in challenging instances
    and every single day! I am certain when you posted a request on
    your site asking persons to foster canines while their owners are
    finding back on their feet you would obtain a very good response.

    I’ve got this dish baking right now. I’ve added about half an onion, diced and some mushrooms. It already smells awesome!

  • Angie lee


    I was wondering if anybody ha tried this recipe
    In a crockpot? If so did it work and would need to
    Anything different?

  • Carlena


    I cooked this recipe on 350 for 90 mins. and my red potatoes never got done. Has anyone else had this problem?

  • Kati Hall


    I love this dish! Even my husband and 3 year old loved it!

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed it!

  • m


    I so want to try this!

  • Mlle Calagan


    It’s in the oven right now!!! I added pieces of bacon and 1 garlic glove… look amazing, smell amazing!!! Thank you for the recipe! :-)

  • Cindy


    It is a great dish….tasted great….but my potatoes took forever to cook…

  • Ali


    I just wanted to share my two cents here too. I was super excited to make this because it sounded easy, semi-healthy (with oil) and delicious, but as I was reading the comments (while the dish was in the oven) I was getting nervous about all the comments about the potatoes/chicken not cooking in an hour. WELL – I am happy to report that after just 60 minutes, my chicken, beans and potatoes were PERFECTLY cooked. My husband RAVED about the meal (and he’s the cook in the family!). We added cajun seasoning, the zesty italian dressing mix packet and garlic cloves. Also, we used olive oil instead of butter. Perfecto!

    • Julie Evink


      So glad it turned out Ali!!

  • Kara


    I am planning on making this for Sunday dinner!! We are not huge fans of green beans so I am planning on using the quarter corn on the cobs from the freezer section… has anyone tried that??

  • christina


    I do not have a dish…can I use a cake pan for this recipe??

    • Julie Evink


      I’ve never tried it like that but I’m guessing it would work!

      I made mine in a cake pan (twice), I don’t have a glass dish. I would recommend oiling the pan a bit.

    This was delicious! The second time I made it I forgot the foil and my potatoes did not finish. I just threw them in the microwave.
    Do not forget the foil!

    Looks delicious! I have it in the oven as we speak. I only had canned green beans and nonitalian seasoning but I did have a ranch seasoning so I hope that goes well with it!

    Had this pinned on one of my Pinterest boards and cooked last week. I used baby blonde potatoes cut in half and after reading several comments I used half the amount of butter. This was absolutely delicious! My daughter loved the chicken. Will definitely be making this recipe again.

    Hello, this recipe for green beans and chicken looks great. I wondered if the same recipe could be placed in the crockpot? Have you tried it that way? Would love to hear your feedback on this,. Thank you

    • Julie Evink


      I don’t know if anyone that has tried it like that yet!

    Just made this tonight. Used only half a stick of butter. It was yummy, I will make again.

    I want to try this…can you use can green beans instead of the fresh green beans?

    • Julie Evink


      I haven’t tried it like this but you can read through all the comments and someone might have some feedback!

    My whole family loved this recipe. I also tried it using French onion soup mix and it was also fantastic.

    This is in the oven now as I write, it smells delicious! I used fresh green beans and red potatoes. I also added several chopped cloves of garlic and a small onion sliced up under the chicken and in the veggies. Another thing I did was sprinkled a little salt and pepper all over my chicken before the Italian dressing on top! I’m using a large baking sheet that has a lip, lined with foil. I think having more surface area will help it cook more evenly. I covered it with foil and will cook it 30 min covered and 30 min uncovered. Will report back with results!! I’m so excited to try such an easy weeknight meal!!

      The dish turned out great!! Will be making again and again!! When I checked it at 30 min, it still wasn’t done so I upped the temp to 400 and let it go uncovered for another 20 min and it was perfect! Everything was cooked perfectly, and the chicken was slightly brown and pretty on top. So I’d suggest to use a large baking sheet, and cook 30 minutes at 375 covered and 20-30 minutes uncovered at 400! Happy cooking everyone!!

    I saw this recipe about two years ago & after the first time I made it my family LOVED it!! The only thing I did different was use red potatoes since they’re a lot quicker to cut up, & it has turned out perfect everytime!! This is definitely one of my favorite go to quick, no fuss, easy to make meals!

    This doesn’t seem to be the original recipe for t his dish that I had pinned on pinterest, or y p u have changed it slightly since I last made this last month. Anyway, I always use frozen green beans because they are cheap, and you don’t have to drain or cut them. They turn out wonderful every time. I also melt the butter first, so I can drizzle it over everything. Either that or I drizzle Olive oil over I instead. Another thing I do differently is I use Grill mates marinade packets instead of the Italian dressing mix. I usually get a packet of the zesty herb marinade and a packet of the tomatoes, garlic, and basil marinade and sprinkle half of each packet over the entire dish. It’s wonderful for those of us who don’t care for the Italian dressing mix.

      Sorry Cortney. I haven’t updated this in years!

  • tawney


    I was wondering if this would be able to be made with chicken thighs and without foil?

    • Julie Evink


      I’m not sure Tawney! I’ve never tried it like that. You can look through all the comments on this post to see if anyone else has!

  • Stephanie


    I have this marinating in fridge for tomorrow but I added Tonys chaceres to it with onion and garlic powder

  • Sunni


    I could not find a packet of dried ranch mix , so i am going to try onion soup mix ( onion with roasted garlic) this sounds like a great dish :) using bonless porkchops and baby carrots

    • Sunni


      I meant italian..lol

  • debbie


    Do you drain the green beans if you just use the can or just dump the can with juice and all

    • Julie Evink


      I used fresh green beans!

  • gngracie


    I made this tonight and agree with previous posters about too much butter. If I make it again, I’ll try olive oil instead. It was tasty, but the butter flavor was overwhelming.
