1. Green Beans, Chicken & Potatoes

Green Beans, Chicken & Potatoes


  • 3 medium Yukon gold potatoes diced
  • 2 c. fresh green beans cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 lb chicken breasts pounded to 1/2” thickness
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 7 oz package dry Italian dressing mix

  • Cut potatoes up. Line opposite sides of the pan with the potatoes.
  • Line the chicken breasts down the middle of the baking dish.
  • Cut the butter up and layer over the green beans, potatoes and chicken. Sprinkle Italian dressing over the entire pan. Cover with foil.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr.


Can I use other vegetables?
Yes! Other people have successfully used cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, asparagus, etc. Just make sure you cut them according to the cooking time. Carrots will take longer to cook so cut them smaller, but broccoli cooks faster so cut it big!
Can I change the seasoning?
Yes! Many people use ranch seasoning instead of Italian or use your own blend. It’s so easy to switch up the flavors in this dish.
My chicken breast is taking a long time to cook, what happened?
A quick tip is to always pound out your chicken breast to about 1/2” thickness so it’s even and cooks evenly. This will help cook everything evenly.
Why aren’t my potatoes done?
The biggest tip is to make sure they are all the same size and you want them all the smaller size so they cook faster.
Fresh or Canned Vegetables?
We always use fresh green beans, but many people have commented they use a variety of canned vegetables and its works great!
What kind of potatoes should I use?
We love the texture and flavor of Yukon Gold Potatoes, but many people have used russet and red potatoes with success. Others have commented they used baby potatoes and cut them in half and it worked great.

5. Sheet Pan Chicken, Green Beans & Potatoes

Sheet Pan Chicken, Green Beans & Potatoes


  • red potatoes (chopped into bite-sized pieces): 2 medium (2 cups chopped)
  • chicken tenderloins: 16 oz
  • olive oil: 1 tsp
  • frozen cut green beans: 10 oz
  • unsalted butter: 4 tbsp
  • Italian dressing mix: 1 tbsp


  1. Spray a 9 x13-inch sheet pan with cooking spray. Place the raw chicken strips down 1/3 of the pan. Place the potatoes down another 1/3 of the pan. Finally, lay the frozen green beans down in the last 1/3 of the pan.
  2. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Check chicken for doneness after 20 minutes.
  3. Melt the butter and drizzle over the entire pan of chicken, potatoes and green beans. Sprinkle Italian dressing dry mix over the entire pan.
  4. To “leach” the potatoes: Place chopped potatoes in a large pan and cover them completely with water. Bring to a boil, then drain. Refill water over the potatoes, to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil again and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil before adding to the sheet pan.

II. Recipes for Italian chicken green beans and potatoes

1. Italian Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes

This Italian Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes recipe is a delicious one-pot wonder that only requires 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time. Serve it with rolls and you have dinner in under an hour! 

Italian Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes


  • 2 cups green beans
  • 2-3 medium russet potatoes
  • 2-3 large chicken breasts, thawed or fresh
  • 1 pkg Italian dressing mix
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Wash the green beans and potatoes.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes.
  • Slice green beans into bite-size pieces.
  • Line one side of a 9×13-inch baking dish with green beans and line the other with the chunks of potato.
  • Place the chicken breast between the green beans and potatoes. (I sliced my chicken in half to make thinner pieces of meat)
  • Cut the butter into 1 tbsp squares and place evenly over the green beans, chicken, and potatoes.
  • Sprinkle the entire dish with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.

Tips for Making Italian Dressing Chicken

  • Always make sure that your meat is fully cooked. Occasionally, depending on the thickness of the chicken breast, I find that I need to pop this back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
  • You may only need two potatoes, again depending on size. You should have some overlap, but don’t pile them up too much or it will impact the baking time. You can also swap out russet potatoes with baby reds.
  • A few people have left comments with worry about the amount of butter in this baked chicken with Italian dressing. Keep in mind that the nutrition facts include the full amount of butter, BUT you aren’t actually eating all the butter! I use a slotted spoon to scoop out my chicken, green beans, and potatoes and leave the liquid behind.

2. Italian Chicken Potato Green Bean Bake

Chicken Potato Green Bean Bake is full of flavor and requires hardly any prep work. The Italian dressing seasoning gives the perfect tangy flavor without being overpowering.

Ingredients Needed

  • Italian Dressing Mix – This is not the bottle of Italian dressing, but rather the dry mix. You’ll find the seasoning mix in the salad dressing aisle at the grocery store. You can buy single packets or a box – either way, you just need one packet for this recipe.
  • Chicken Breast – Two pounds of boneless skinless breasts and this usually equals about 4-6 pieces depending on the size.
  • Green Beans – I recommend fresh or frozen, but you can always substitute 1-2 cans if that’s what you have on hand. If you go over the recommended 12 ounces, it’s okay. It will still taste delicious.
  • Potatoes – My favorite potatoes to use in this dish are the fingerlings from Costco. If I don’t have them on hand, I use small red potatoes.
  • Butter – This is to drizzle over the seasoning. Yummmm, everything’s better with butter!


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Arrange chicken, green beans & potatoes in greased casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle dressing mix over chicken, beans & potatoes.
  • Drizzle with melted butter.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes. Remove foil & bake for another 10 minutes to brown the chicken.


  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Other hearty vegetables can be substituted if desired.
  • Nutritional information is provided as a reference, using an online calculator. We recommend verifying this information independently.

Tips for Making Chicken with Green Beans & Potatoes

  • I typically use a 9×13 casserole dish lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or something similar. If you are carrying this dish to an event, I cannot say enough good things about this casserole carrier! It’s amazing and keeps your food hot until ready to serve.
  • You can also use a cookie sheet and prepare it more like a sheet pan meal.
  • If you are a cheese lover, feel free to top the finished meal with a sprinkling of parmesan or shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Don’t worry if you’ve eyeballed your veggies. This recipe doesn’t have to be measured perfectly. Which is another reason why it is one of my favorites!
  • Sometimes chicken breasts can vary in thickness. You may want to cut them in half if they are really big. Just to be on the safe side make sure the internal chicken temperature reads 165 degrees before serving (I have this thermometer). If you have to cook it a little longer and the dish starts to brown quickly, you can recover it with aluminum foil.

Should you bake chicken at 350 degrees or 400 degrees?

The reason that baking chicken breasts at 400degF is superior to 350degF is that roasting the chicken breasts at temperatures that are high will take less time and is the ideal choice if you are looking for a moist and juicy breast.

Do I need to wrap chickens in foil while baking?

Do you cover your chicken while roasting? It is common to roast our chicken with the skin exposed so that the skin is crisped up and then turns a beautiful golden brown. If your chicken begins getting too dark before reaching the right temperature for internal consumption You can cover it with the chicken with foil over the top of the chicken to ensure that the skin isn’t burned.

How can you stop the chicken not drying in your oven?

For the first time, brine your chicken in a solution of water and several spoons of salt, for 20-30 minutes. This will enhance the natural flavor and the moisture of the breasts of your chicken and will give you an extremely tender piece of meat. This is the only method that will ensure that the chicken will not be dry or hard.

Covering chicken helps it cook quicker?

The final most efficient and simplest method to ensure the chicken cooks faster is covering the chicken as it cooks. Even if you’ve cooked the outside of the bird already, it’s still advisable to protect the grill or pan while the chicken is cooking.

What is the best oven to be on to cook chicken?

Roasting or baking can be done any time between 325 to 450°F. If you are roasting a whole chicken the best way to cook them is to begin at 400-420 temperatures F and then lower the oven to 350 degrees after 15 minutes. Cook until the internal temperature of the bird is between 165 and 175 degrees F with an instant thermometer.
