Garlic Parmesan Chicken One Pan Meal

While I love to cook, I hate doing dishes and will take shortcuts to avoid them wherever I can. My favorite “trick” for cutting down on dish duty is to make one skillet meals, leaving just one pan to wash instead of the usual 3 to 5 from our protein, veggies, and starches. This Garlic Parmesan Chicken One Pan Meal is quick, less than 30 minutes from fridge to table, easy, is a hit with the family (okay so the kids pick out the onions), and cuts way down on my dish duty so it makes the rotation often!

This garlic Parmesan chicken one pan meal is a filling and nutritiously complete dish! It's also relatively healthy, since its made with chicken breasts and veggies. It's a much better choice for a busy night than ordering in pizza!

5. Continue to cook until chicken is nearly done but not quite. To test, just cut a piece of chicken in half with your spatula in the pan and look for just a bit of pink inside. At this point stir in your squash and potatoes, stir frequently and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
6. Stir in minced or diced garlic.

7. Cut asparagus into 1” pieces and add to your dish, stir to cook through.
8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

9. Do you see this beautiful and tasty stuff left in the bottom of the pan? We want to capture that to grab some of its flavor, so pour in your chicken stock and after it heats  up you will be able to grab it up with your wooden spoon. This is known as deglazing the pan and it adds a lot of flavor to dishes!

11. Remove from heat, uncover pan and add a generous amount of fresh grated Parmesan- not the dry stuff, we want the good fresh grated cheese from the refrigerated section!

Then serve and enjoy your garlic Parmesan chicken one pan meal!
