Elisabeth - I absolutely love to cook, particularly healthy meals, but some not so healthy, so choosing a recipe to share was not easy since I have so many favorites. I cook most nights, so quick recipes are a must. My favorite recipes are ones that involve as little clean up as possible, so this one pot meal is one of my favorites. Especially with summer right around the corner, this super flavorful meal is a go to for me. You can change it up by using chicken thighs or shrimp. I’m sure it would be good with any other meat, so you can have fun experimenting! Another great thing about this recipe is that it’s gluten free, so you can share with anyone!
I prefer using a Dutch oven for most things I cook, everything cooks more evenly in my experience and it always browns the chicken nicely. If you don’t have a Dutch oven, any large skillet with higher sides will do. Ok, now on to recipe… this is for about 4 serving sizes, so more than likely enough for 2 people with a little left over. This recipe takes about 40-45 minutes from start to finish including prep time.
