This is a great one-pan family meal that is both hearty and delicious. A really easy 'set it and forget it' arrangement.

  • Flip chicken breasts. Arrange potatoes, carrots, and celery around the chicken.

  • Chop rosemary and lemon thyme together; sprinkle over the chicken and vegetables. Season everything with paprika, garlic powder, seasoned salt, white pepper, salt and black pepper.

  • Place a lid on the skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Use a 12-inch cast-iron skillet with a lid if available.

My husband made this and it was delicious! He did add more chicken broth to it as was suggested by someone else. Plus we didn't have "bone-in chicken " so he just used boneless skinless chicken breasts (2) and browned them first in the pan then followed the recipe. We also didn't have "fresh" rosemary so we used dry. It was really yummy! Read More

This was just ok for me. I will admit I did not use bone in chicken just sliced boneless chicken breast but it was more the flavor I wasn't impressed with than anything else. I might try this again but vary the spices quite a bit. There just wasn't anything special about it IMHO and I could tell my husband was unimpressed (although he'd never tell me as much ha!)

We loved the vegetables. The chicken was good. I used extra chicken broth and I also used bone in chicken breasts. Be careful not to over bake this or it will come out dry. I would check the chicken at 30 minutes and 5 minutes after that until the thermometer reads 165º. Read More

Totally impressed the family with this. I did add some sliced fresh garlic and chopped shallots to brown in the butter before the chicken went in and I used a bag of mixed munchkin potatoes cut in half (instead of large potatoes). After the vegetables and spices went in I poured 1 cup of chicken broth over it all and let simmer covered. About 40 minutes later the chicken was done and I removed it to a covered casserole so that I could cook down the vegetables and broth a bit to thicken the "gravy". The chicken was juicy and tender and the "au jus" added a great touch to pour over it all. My husband who is a fan of dark meat because he says white meat is always dry went back for seconds.

Both my husband and I thought this was great especially if you add chicken broth when you add in the veggies as others suggested. And bone-in and skin-on chicken is what made this soooo moist! Also the cooking time mentioned is definitely too long. Fortunately I put in a meat thermometer - the kind that has a cord attached to it so you can still close the lid and an alarm will go off when it reaches the right temperature. It only took about 20 minutes and it was so moist and perfect. Also honestly just use whatever seasonings you typically like on meat and vegetables - that's what I did. I would also say that 4 potatoes are too many unless they are very small potatoes. You have two pieces of chicken so this is a meal for two people. You only need enough veggies for two and there's no way my husband and I each would eat two whole potatoes. I also added chopped onions to the veggies because we like them... Read More

I will make this again and again! It is key to use chicken breasts with the skin still on. The veggies were to die for! And best yet it is simple to throw together without much of a mess. (Easy clean up.) I put my meat thermometer in at 45 minutes and the chicken was at 190 degrees-- ooops. I'll check way earlier next time. Read More
