Expert Tips for Making One-Pot Meals

Crispy Chicken: To get an extra crispy skin on both the chicken and vegetables, broil the chicken for a few minutes. Just be sure to keep a close eye to avoid burning.

Even Cooking: To avoid undercooked vegetables be sure to cut the vegetables evenly.

Safety First: Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the cooked chicken. It should read 165°F (74°C).

Make a Gravy: Use the juices from the bottom of the pan to make a gravy to pour over the top of leftovers or before serving for an extra rich flavor.

Saving time in the kitchen has never been easier, making one-pot meals a weekly staple in my household, and with this recipe in the rotation, you can save time while serving up delicious dinners too!
