This week’s post is a recipe review based on this pin:
I haven’t been able to trace this back to any particular blog or person, so unfortunately I’m not able to properly credit this. The recipe instructions that were uploaded with the pin are as follows:
4-6 raw chicken breasts, new potatoes, green beans. Arrange in 9×13 dish. Sprinkle with a packet of Italian dressing mix and then top with a melted stick of butter. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
I used a quart jar of green beans I canned last summer, three or four regular Yukon Gold potatoes, and three chicken breasts. I just tossed it all in the pan instead of arranging it all fancy-like. My husband doesn’t care about presentation. I used a .9-ounce packet of Italian dressing mix and changed the one stick of butter to a 1/4 cup of butter and a 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Here’s how it turned out for me:
Verdict? This dish has promise, but I thought it was waaaay too greasy. The potatoes and beans went well with the Italian dressing mix, but the chicken didn’t do it for me. It was just bland.
If I make this again, I’m going to marinade the chicken first, then just use a half stick (1/4 cup) of butter or oil instead of the full stick (1/2 cup).
Has anyone else found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it? What did you think?
