Sheet Pan Italian Chicken
A confession between friends: I dread trimming green beans. I pinky promise it’s worth it for this Sheet Pan Italian Chicken and Vegetables! An easy, one-pan Italian chicken dinner, this flavor-packed meal demands only 20 minutes of prep, and the recipe can be adapted to just about any vegetable. I used a summer array of tomatoes, zucchini, and yes, the dreaded G.B.
Chopping vegetables usually doesn’t phase me, but when it comes to green beans, I have a mental kitchen block. I either end up spending an inordinate amount of time trimming each bean individually, or I try to slice a group of them together, cut off too much, and waste a good portion.
Plus, each bean has TWO ends. That’s double the trim.
Real problems here.
Then, on Saturday night, I went over to a friend’s for dinner, where my green bean “issues” were put into context. She had a guest in town, and the two of them spent an entire day prepping and cooking a beautiful summer meal that included (you guessed it) green beans. Every bite was superb, and it reminded me how special it is to have someone prepare a meal for you.
Now, I’m not suggesting that we all have the luxury of spending an entire day preparing dinner, which is why this Italian Chicken is ready in less than an hour, and half of that time is inactive while the chicken marinades. If you prep this recipe ahead, you can have it in the oven in fewer than five minutes, and on the table in 20. (more…)
