This is a quick and easy recipe for One Pot Healthy Chicken Dinner perfect for a Sunday family meal. Needs only 9 ingredients and 30 minutes to cook. Gluten-Free. Paleo. Whole30.
This recipe is an extremely simple one that came into existence one ordinary weekend when my mom decided to do some cooking – something that didn’t happen very often – which thinking back means it was actually a pretty extraordinary weekend.
Needless to say, we were so impressed with this dish she came up with, that it became a staple for rainy day dinners and lazy Sunday lunches.
I like to dish up the meal in a serving casserole. Put the chicken to one side and the veggies on the other side using a slotted spoon.
Of course, if you prefer – you can add double the water to turn it into more of a stew or soup.

- Sear the chicken, skin side down, in a large pot.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and the water and bring to a boil.
