This is a very simple recipe that I put together years ago with items I had on hand (because it was cold and I didn't want to get out and go to the store, lol). I was able to prep things and then put everything in the pot and simmer on low for @ an standing over the stove the whole time. A comfort food, for sure. I just got one of the new pressure cookers. I think I'll try this recipe in that and see how it comes out.

How to Make One-Pot Chicken Dinner


  1. Prepare your vegetables:
    peel the potatoes and cut them cross-wise into ½ inch slices – set aside
    peel the onion and cut into 4 to 6 wedges – set aside
    cut the celery into 1 inch pieces – set aside
  2. Prepare the flour:
    In a shallow dish, put the flour, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper; stir to combine – set aside
  3. On medium-high, heat the oil in a 3 – 4-quart pot (I use a deep, 12-inch, non-stick skillet with lid)
  4. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, dredge in flour and place in the hot oil. Cook on both sides (2 – 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned).
  5. Remove chicken from pot and discard excess oil.
  6. Add the soups and water into the pot and heat on medium-high heat until just starting to boil.
  7. Place the potatoes, onion, celery and garlic into the soup mixture.
  8. Return the chicken to the pot; cover, turn the heat to low and let simmer slowly for @ 1 hour.
  9. Check seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
  10. Serve with a fresh salad and hot bread….ENJOY!!!
