Not sure if you’ve noticed but I love a one pot meal.

When you have three little kids & love to work getting healthy & delicious meals on the table is way easier when you don’t have to clean a bunch of dishes afterwards.

I will say, my kids were happiest about the olives on their dish the night we made this.  It’s amusing the lengths I go to, to make dinner exciting & really, all I had to do was pull out some olives.

Either way, it makes me happy to know that I am teaching my kids healthy eating habits & doing the best for them by cooking at home.

8 chicken thighs, skinless & boneless

Juice of one lemon

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

4 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon dried basil

2 Teaspoons dried oregano

1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley

2 Teaspoons Salt

2-3 Sweet potatoes, diced (leave the peel on)

1 Large Zucchini, sliced

8 Ounces Crimini Mushrooms

4 Tablespoons Pitted Olives

Lemon Sliced, to serve

  1.  Clean & pat the thighs dry.
  2. In a shallow dish combine the lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, parsley & salt.  Put half of the marinade to the side for later.
  3. Add the chicken to the marinade in the dish & coat evenly.  Let marinate for 15 minutes to overnight depending on the amount of time you have.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425º.  Heat the remaining olive oil in a large oven proof skillet.
  5. Sear the chicken on both side until golden brown.  About 2-3 minutes per side.  You’ll probably have to do this in batches.  Remove the chicken from the pan & set aside until done.
  6. Once all the chicken is seared, add all the vegetables except the olives & lemon slices to the pan.  Place the chicken thighs on top.  Add the remaining marinade to the pan
  7. Cover the skillet with a lid or with foil & place it in the oven.  Bake for about 35 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.
  8. Once the potatoes are done, adjust the oven to broil, remove the cover from the pan & cook for another 5-10 minutes until chicken is crispy.
  9. Serve with olives & lemon slices.
  10. Enjoy!
