A one pot meal that takes 5 minutes to prep? How you ask? I'll tell you below. As I was making this meal I said to myself (and to the hubby) "This is too easy to be good, sorry if it's lousy, we can get a pizza if so". I was not really looking forward to this BUT I was wrong. Not only did I enjoy it, I got smiles from around the entire table and was asked to mark it as "a keeper". A keeper indeed, it took just over an hour to cook but the prep was literally 5 minutes. Yes sir, in the keeper recipe box you go!

    Preheat oven to 350. Place lemon slices in a line down center of baking dish and top with the chicken.
  • 2

  • 3
    Top everything with pats of butter and sprinkle everything with the italian seasoning.

    Note: If after an hour your potatoes are not tender enough for your liking, remove the chicken from the baking pan and place on a covered plate and return potatoes and beans to oven another 10 minutes. By removing the chicken you avoid drying it out with the extra cook time.
