I’ve seen oven versions of this recipe, but most include an Italian dressing seasoning packet.

Instead of using a seasoning packet to flavor the sauce in this dish, I make a simple mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and dried seasonings.

How to make a one pot chicken dinner:

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts – Can use chicken thighs or tenders.
  • Fresh green beans – Frozen works well too.
  • Red Potatoes – Cut into quarters or about 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Homemade Italian dressing – Super quick to make, see my recipe below.

For the homemade dressing:

  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Olive oil
  • Oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Minced garlic

Can I use lemon juice out of a squeeze bottle?

  • No. This recipe isn’t the time or place to use squeeze bottle lemon juice; the recipe will taste off if you use it.
  • Lemons are cheap, be sure to grab them at the store.

Can I use a different vegetable than green beans?

Yes! If you aren’t a green bean fan, then try one of these substitutes.

  • Broccoli 
  • Asparagus
  • Canned or fresh corn
  • Baby carrots or sliced carrots
  • Extra potatoes

Can I use the Italian dressing mix instead of making the homemade dressing?

  • Yes! You can forgo all the dressing ingredients and drizzle a half cup of butter over the seasoned chicken, potatoes and green beans then sprinkle an Italian dressing mix over.
  • Follow the same cooking directions below.
  • You can find the Italian dressing mix on the salad dressing aisle next to the ranch dressing packets.

  • Follow the same cooking directions below.
  • You can find the Italian dressing mix on the salad dressing aisle next to the ranch dressing packets.
Can I use a different vegetable?
Yes! If you aren’t a green bean fan, then try one of these substitutes:

  • Extra potatoes
Why can’t I use bottled lemon juice?
  • Bottled lemon juice in recipes can taste bitter.
  • This recipe has been tested with fresh lemon juice. Many reviews who have used bottled instead have not liked the meal for the flavor of the bottled lemon juice isn’t right for this recipe.

    I tried it tonight and it was delicious. I addition onion soup mix and more seasonings. I also added chicken stock to the bottom of the crockpot. I used frozen green beans. Definitely putting this in rotation.

    3 stars
    This is a very filling meal but I found it to be quite bland. Definitely needed more spices and salt.

  3. Tom M. says:

    I made about 3x of the recipe: used fresh garlic, a fresh yellow onion, about two cups of chicken broth, 8 lbs of boneless breast, 3 lbs of new Michigan potatoes, 1 lb 6 oz of fresh green beans, pepper, kosher salt, oregono, 1/3 cup of virgin olive oil, 1/3 cup of lemon juice (from a bottle lol), and then slow cooked it in my 10 qt cooker for 7 hours. Talk about good….crazy good. Left-overs are going into a batch of home made chicken noodle soup tomorrow.

    Family was attacking it with glee. Glad I made a large batch
