The other day I was browsing through my Pinterest boards looking for dinner inspiration when I realized I only pin desserts.  And pasta. Or things covered in cheese. Basically, the most popular things on Pinterest, are no good for you.

ONE DISH RANCH CHICKEN VEGGIE BAKE

Then Macaroni & Cheesecake popped up in my blogroll with a one dish, balanced meal. A protein, vegetable, and a starch? In one dish? I was sold. I made a few changes and was really happy with how it turned out.  The result was my version of Ranch Chicken in one dish with potatoes and green beans!

HOW TO MAKE IT

I was going to buy fresh green beans but then I realized I was too hungry to bother with trimming them so I took a shortcut with frozen. Canned green beans will work just fine if that’s what you have on hand.  You could even use asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower.  Really any veggie is ideal for this.

    I’m so similarly minded, it’s scary! 99% of my Pins are desserts!
    I love one pot/dish meals!

  2. Betty in Texas says

    Just ran across your recipe, sounds interesting. I usually toss the potatoes in a separate bowl and toss with seasonings and olive oil. I held back and did everything in the one baking dish. There are just two of us, so I used an 8 x 8inch baking pan. I added a little minced garlic to the melted butter before pouring over the contents. Then I sprinkled a little panko crumbs and Parmesan over the chicken. Then, I chopped a little bit of onion, and sprinkled that over everything before sticking it in the oven. I love one dish meals.

    • Melissa Williams says

      Sounds like great additions! I love panko & would put it on everything, but my husband doesn’t feel the same 😉

  3. katie says

    Should this be covered with foil? Sounds delicious! 🙂

    • Melissa Williams says

      I didn’t cover with foil but it might speed up the cooking of the potatoes if you do 🙂

    This looks so easy and I was looking for something just this simple to make for a friend. Making meals for a friend in their time of need is something I love to do! Food is love, right?!

  5. Mary says

    I found this recipe on pinterest and cannot wait to try it. Question…do you think sweet potatoes would work well in this?

    • Melissa Williams says

      I think sweet potatoes would work really well…and be delicious =) Let me know how it turns out!

  6. Jodi says

    Would fresh green beans be ok??

    • Melissa Williams says

      Yep, they should be fine. I would prefer fresh but I was being lazy =)

  7. Andee says

    Made this tonight with some changes based on what I had on hand and it was a hit here. Used fresh green beans and sweet potatoes. Also didn’t have ranch dressing mix so I used garlic dill seasoning, seasoned salt and topped with parmesan bread crumbs. Super yummy!

    • Melissa Williams says

      Sound like good edits – I’ve been wanting to try it with sweet potatoes!

  8. Anna says

    Want to make this dish today but I am unsure of timing with the chicken breast. Did you say 1 hour and 15 minutes to cook chicken breast? It does not usually take that much time. Would that dry out the chicken? Thanks.

    • Melissa Williams says

      Hi Anna,
      The longer cooking time is to make sure the potatoes cook through. I didn’t have a problem with the chicken being dry.

  9. Kayla says

    Would this work with fresh asparagus?

    • Melissa Williams says

      I haven’t tried it but I love asparagus & it sounds like a good idea =)

  10. Laura Aycock says

    Used broccoli instead of green beans. Next time, would add broccoli later. I reduced butter but would reduce more and just use more olive oil. And less salt as the ranch packet is salty enough. Oh and next time sweet potatoes. It was still delicious following the recipe.

  11. Stephanie N. says

    I was skeptical about the cook temp and time but whoa! The chicken and vegetables were perfect! I used frozen string beans and diced Yukon gold potatoes. I covered with foil and cooked at 375 for 90 minutes. The chicken is moist and the potatoes are so perfect. Such and easy dinner for a busy working mom running between work and sports. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Melissa Williams says

      I’m glad you liked it! I made this way before I was a mom but now more than ever, I understand the busy working mom time crunch & am happy to have recipes like this in my wheelhouse =)

  12. RJ says

    I’ve made this twice and the cook time is off. 75 minutes covered the first time made my chicken dry and second time I did 60 min, but the same problem. I might try 45 minutes instead. I didn’t use the butter as I like to utilize clean eating methods.

    • Melissa Williams says

      So, what’d you use instead of butter?

  13. Carol Barnhart says

    I was looking for inspiration for chicken and came across this recipe. I tried it with a small cheat. Instead of setting the oven to 375, I set it to 400 and seasoned the chicken and put it in the pan. I cut up my potatoes and added some fresh parsley with the salt and pepper then put them in the microwave for 5 minutes. I transferred them to a baking dish (separate from the chicken) and sprinkled the ranch mix over the chicken and the potatoes and put them in the oven for 40 minutes. They tasted great and my family loved them. So now I have a new recipe that I can use to help liven up the chicken days. Thank you for a wonderful idea.

    • Michelle says

      Can you use drumsticks?

    • Melissa Williams says

      Probably, but I’ve never tried it. I’ve honestly never made drumsticks =) I think they would bake quicker than the potatoes though – about 45 minutes – while the dish as described takes about an hour.

  14. Shelley says

    I’m looking for the one dish ranch chicken bake nutrients? I see the chart but it all says 0?

    • Melissa Williams says

      Hi Shelley – I’m in the (very slow & tedious) process of updating nutrition info on each post. I’ll get this one updated in a few minutes 🙂

    I make this once a week all the time now the only thing I do different is I use chopped broccoli instead of green beans and I toss both the potatoes and brocolli in olive oil plus seasonings of my choice then put into the pan. So yummy!

  16. EnChante' LeMieux says

    4 stars
    Turned out well. My daughter doesn’t like green beans so we did broccoli. Very tasty. Little low on presentation, so I may sear my chicken first next time to get some color but all in all very tasty.

  17. Abby says

    Would the cooking time change or would I add the chicken later if using thin sliced chicken breasts?

    • Melissa Williams says

      Not by much. I’d check it at 45 mins to see if the chicken is at 165° and the potatoes are fork tender.
