Mediterranean One Pan Dinner

YES is all you need to say. 

Ingredients

1 small red onion

1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes

1.25-1.5 lbs chicken, cubed (or you could do bone-in thighs)

1 14oz can of marinated artichoke hearts, quartered

1 14 oz can of white beans, drained & rinsed

4 garlic cloves, sliced

1/4 c calamata olives, pitted & chopped

8 oz fresh mozzarella or feta

6-10 fresh chopped basil leaves

MUST HAVE either fancy deelicious bread or pasta. 


Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the red onion into smaller individual slices and put on the pan with the tomatoes and EVOO and S+P.  Mix well and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tomatoes split and the red onion is soft. 

While that’s going, marinate the chicken chunks in just enough of the juice from the artichoke can to coat the chicken – you’ll want the rest later. 

While that’s sitting, chop the rest of your stuff, get the beans ready, etc. 

Cook the chicken mostly in a frying pan, set aside. 

By now your roasting should be done. Add the chicken, artichokes, beans, olives, garlic cloves to the pan and return to the oven for 7-10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. 

Remove and add cheese and basil. Serve over pasta, with bread, whatever carb you choose.
