One Pot Wonder! 

Okay I was so super skeptical about this meal.  I kept thinking there is no way it is going to be this easy and actually taste decent!  Oh my word y’all, I am so super impressed!  This meal was not only easy and required little to no dishes but was delicious!  I was able to get my groceries in between class and also get the chicken in the marinate!  When I got home this meal became a breeze!  

What you will need!

Olive oil

Red wine vinegar 

Salt and Pepper 

Ground Basil

Rosemary 

Parsley flakes 

2 Lemons 

1 Zucchini 

1 Red Bell Pepper

Small bag of Yellow potatoes 

Kalamala Olives 

Garlic fresh or minced 

Red onion 

4 Skin on bone in chicken thighs 

*not pictured olive oil & ground basil 

Okay the ingredients for the marinate are pretty simple:

2 tsp ground basil

1 tsp rosemary

2 tsp parsley 

1 1/2 tbsp of red wine vinegar 

2 1/2 tbsp of olive oil

1/4 lemon juice 

5 cloves of garlic 

Salt & Pepper to taste 


You will mix this together and pour half to reserve for later.  Meanwhile you will put your skin on bone in chicken thighs in the marinate for an one hour or overnight.

Is it gross to post pictures of raw chicken?

After you watch a little T.V., workout, do some homework, chase your kids around, shower, or whatever you need to do, you come back to a quick and easy finish. 


You start with your Ceramic pot like picture above.  I bought this one at TJ Max for around $40 and I am in love!  You turn your oven on to 430 degrees. Then pour some olive oil into your pot and turn up the heat on the stove!  Once your olive oil has heated up you can start browning your chicken.  I let them brown for about 4-5 minutes and then flipped them and continued to cook them for another 4-5 minutes. 

While the chicken is browning, I went ahead and cut up the red onion, zucchini, lemon, red bell pepper, and small yellow potatoes.  

Once he chicken was done I poured out some of the grease and went ahead and put the veggies and olives on top! 

After you pile them all on top of the chicken you then pour your reserve marinade over the top and then toss the veggies making sure to get them evenly coated! 


Once you are finished throw the top on and stick that bad boy in the oven at 430 degrees for 35 minutes!  When the timer goes off pull out your masterpiece and VOLIÁ dinner is ready! 


We served ours up in a dish and took it outside to enjoy the lovely spring weather!  We really enjoyed how quick and tasty this meal was.  The only thing I would change are the olives.  They seemed too salty and neither of us ate them!  If you love a kick of salt keep them in!  Either way if you have a busy schedule, you have to try this!  I was super impressed and can not wait to try another one pot meal!  Let me know what y’all think!  Thanks for stopping by! XOXO!
