By now, you know I love super quick, delicious and nutritious one pan meals. This is supposed to be quite rustic so don’t get hung-up on chopping everything up perfectly.
What’s so good about it?
This healthy chicken recipe is a nourishing one pan complete meal, and is fast and simple to make! Plus it can be pre-prepared and reheated as needed. It contains a perfect balance of protein, fats, fibre and a rainbow of vegetables and herbs.
1 onion, roughly chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
500-700grams chicken thighs or chicken legs
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 carrots, peeled and roughly diced
2 sticks celery, chopped
1 red capsicum, diced
2 small or 1 large sweet potato, washed and diced
3 tablespoons fresh tarragon, leaves picked and chopped or 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
Splash of white wine
½ cup chicken or vegetable stock (see here for the health benefits of bone broth)
Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Chopped fresh parsley leaves, to serve
Over chopped salad greens, chopped kale, steamed broccoli and mashed (pureed) cauliflower or potato.
If you are pushed for time and want to pre-prepare this meal, don’t worry about sautéing the onion, garlic, and meat. Just throw all together, cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake. You will just need to bake it for an extra 10-20 minutes to ensure the meat is cooked. I also often take the lid off for the last 10 -15 minutes to brown the chicken.
Double the legumes or add in mushrooms.
If you dislike or don’t have a particular vegetable, just substitute it or leave it out. This is a very versatile dish – anything goes!
Don’t like Tarragon?
Simple, thyme is a delicious alternative.
