One-pan dinners are truly 2 dishes in 1

I had a wonderful time visiting with my grandma last week. We did not do much of anything except for watching movies, eating yummy food and laughing at each other’s jokes. Haha!

Lol, I know I’ve said this before, but I love one pan dinners. They are so easy to make and clean up. Ha, one of the things I like about them is you don’t have to worry about having a side dish because the veggies you chose to go along with your meat is a side. You can just think of them as 2 dishes in 1 😀

Today I’m sharing with you an incredible flavorful one-pan dinner called One-Pan Pesto Chicken and veggies. The preparation of this dish was easy as 1-2-3 and would make an excellent meal for a weeknight dinner for you and your family. Also, I would like to say that I have never tasted pesto before until last night, and lol it felt like my taste buds were having a party.

One-Pan Pesto Chicken and veggies

Ingredients

2 Tbsps olive oil
1 lb chicken thighs or breasts, boneless and skinless, sliced into strips
1/3 C. sun-dried tomatoes, drained of oil, chopped
1 lb asparagus, ends trimmed, cut in half, if large
1/4 C basil pesto
1 C cherry tomatoes, yellow and red, halved

Instructions

1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add two tablespoons of olive oil, combine the sliced chicken thighs or breasts, season chicken generously with salt, add half of chopped sun-dried tomatoes – and cook everything on medium heat for five-ten minutes, flipping a couple of times, until the chicken is finished cooking.

2. Remove the chicken and sun-dried from the skillet, leaving the oil. Combine the asparagus (ends trimmed), seasoned generously with salt, add the remaining half of sun-dried tomatoes, and cook on medium heat for five-ten minutes until the asparagus cooked thoroughly. Remove asparagus to serving plate.

3. Add the chicken back to the skillet, add pesto, stir to coat on low-medium heat until chicken is cooked through, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add halved cherry tomatoes, mix with the pesto and the chicken. Add chicken and vegetables to the serving plate with asparagus.

Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini

Tonight for my family I cooked this Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini. I, of course, found the recipe  on Pinterest. I love getting recipes from there, lol it’s addicting! Oh, by the way, they, of course, enjoyed their meal. 🙂 It’s relatively an easy one pan dish that you can prepare, and your family will enjoy! The chicken is so tender and breaded with an amazing parmesan garlic crust, and the zucchini is sautéed in a savory buttery parmesan garlic!

Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken with Zucchini

Ingredients

2 Chicken Breasts, sliced in half, or 4 thin chicken breasts
8 Tbsp butter, divided
½ C. Italian Bread Crumbs (I used Panko)
½ C. plus 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan, divided
¼ C flour
2 medium zucchini, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced

Instructions

1. In a large skillet over medium heat melt two tablespoons of butter.
To cook the chicken: melt the remaining four tablespoons of butter in a microwave-safe shallow dish. In another shallow dish mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and flour. Dredge the chicken in the butter and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture and place in skillet.

2. Cook on each side for about three – four minutes until the outside is crispy and the chicken is fully cooked. Set aside on a plate. Add another two tablespoons of butter back to the skillet and saute the minced garlic for a minute. Place the zucchini into the skillet and saute until tender. Salt and pepper to taste and add one tablespoon of parmesan. Put the chicken back to the skillet and heat for a minute or so. Serve immediately.
