Italian Dressing Mix – This is not the bottle of Italian dressing, but rather the dry mix. You’ll find the seasoning mix in the salad dressing aisle at the grocery store. You can buy single packets or a box – either way you just need one packet for this recipe.
Chicken Breast – Two pounds of boneless skinless breasts and this usually equals about 4-6 pieces depending on the size.
Green Beans – I recommend fresh or frozen, but you can always substitute 1-2 cans if that’s what you have on hand. If you go over the recommended 12 ounces, it’s okay. It will still taste delicious.
Potatoes – My favorite potatoes to use in this dish are the fingerlings from Costco. If I don’t have them on hand, I use small red potatoes.
Butter – This is to drizzle over the seasoning. Yummmm, everything’s better with butter!
Tips for Making Chicken with Green Beans & Potatoes
- I typically use a 9×13 casserole dish lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or something similar. If you are carrying this dish to an event, I cannot say enough good things about this casserole carrier! It’s amazing and keeps your food hot until ready to serve.
- You can also use a cookie sheet and prepare it more like a sheet pan meal.
- If you are a cheese lover, feel free to top the finished meal with a sprinkling of parmesan or shredded mozzarella cheese.
- Don’t worry if you’ve eyeballed your veggies. This recipe doesn’t have to be measured perfectly. Which is another reason why it is one of my favorites!
- Sometimes chicken breasts can vary in thickness. You may want to cut them in half if they are really big. Just to be on the safe side make sure the internal chicken temperature reads 165 degrees before serving (I have this thermometer). If you have to cook it a little longer and the dish starts to brown quickly, you can recover with aluminum foil.
How To Store
Store your leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to four days. Chicken Potato Green Bean Bake makes a great leftover lunch. And reheating leftovers in the microwave works just fine.
If you are into meal prepping, this dish can be prepared ahead of time for a wholesome meal.
Can I Sub Other Vegetables?
Yes! This recipe is one of those that does not have to be exact. By all means swap out with your favorite hearty veggies like onions, brussels sprouts or broccoli.
What Should I Serve With This Easy Dinner?
With this meal already containing chicken, green beans, and potatoes the dinner doesn’t require much else. I personally serve it with a small side salad topped with my yummy creamy house dressing and rolls.
