Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
I have used this phrase a few times having really no clue where it came from, so I thought I would do a quick search. The legend or story is that way back in the day casinos in Las Vegas had a three-piece chicken dinner with a potato and a veggie for $1.79. A typical bet back then was $2. So, if you won the bet you had enough for a chicken dinner. I am sure I have also heard the phrase used in movies centered around a casino.
All this to say that I think any easy chicken dinner is a winner.
There is nothing easier and more satisfying than an effortless one pan chicken dinner. You will love it because it’s easy and your family will love it because is freaking delicious!
With the most of the US dredging through what seems to be an endless winter I thought it would be nice to make some bright cheery chicken. And, nothing says bright and cheery to me more than lemon and white wine.
I promise this dish is crazy easy. Combine chicken with marinade ingredients in a resealable plastic bag, let marinade for at lease 30 minutes, add veggies tosses in olive oil into baking dish, arrange chicken over veggies, pour on marinade and cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees. EASY!
After 30 minutes remove the foil, raise the temperature to 400 degrees and bake another 20 minutes or until the skin is golden brown and crispy.
When it’s done you will have a dish of tender vegetables, tangy bright sauce and juicy tender fall off the bone chicken with crispy delicious skin. It is honestly swoon worthy.
A complete meal in one pan! Feel free to change out the veggies if you like. You can use red petite potatoes, carrots, turnips, cauliflower, whatever you like. Do you like dishes that are extra bright and a little briny? Add, capers or olives to this dish! Fell free to make it your own.
Oh, did I mention that this dish makes awesome leftovers!? What is better than that!?

G’day! This looks delicious and a delight!
I am making this recipe tonight!
Why remove the onion? It’s yummy! This dish sounds very good. I bet it would work in the crockpot, too. Thanks for the post.
Take the onion from the chicken to add to the vegetables. 😀
