Easy Italian Chicken and VeggiesBy Ginny's TeamEasy Italian chicken and veggies is a tasty, one-dish recipe that comes together quickly in a large casserole dish or Dutch oven. The spices of the Italian salad dressing mix make this simple weeknight dish a real home run, and the addition of carrots, potatoes, and green beans mean that it's healthy and delicious at the same time. We love this meal because it has options. Peel the potatoes, or keep the skins on for an even faster prep time.
