Potato Zucchini Chicken Skillet

One pan 30 minutes and you will have a delectable skillet meal the entire family will love

Potato zucchini chicken skillet is a recipe that I make all the time, but keep forgetting to share. The combination of flavor and texture gives this simple dinner an impressive twist. Almost everything is better with cheese, so topping this simple one skillet meal with a sprinkle of parmesan is a must. Then there is that one ingredient that aids in adding a pop of flavor, any guesses?


Well, that secret ingredient is the beloved hot sauce. Right before the potatoes are finished, hit that hot pan with a desired amount of your personal favorite hot sauce. The beloved condiment does not over power the dish, but aids in enhancing the flavors. Of course you may add extra hot sauce if you would like more heat, but for myself while cooking for little ones I just add a splash for the flavor.

A delectable one skillet pan meal with browned potatoes, zucchini, bites of chicken topped with parmesan and a few other simple ingredients. 

CONFESSION, my children are weirdos and eat almost anything and everything with ketchup. Typically, while indulging in this meal they typically have me pour a little ketchup over the top. Not my ideal topping, but pick your battles right!? This dish allows us more time to play outside and with warmer weather on the way I thoroughly enjoy not turning on the oven. Even better this meal uses only one pan and less dishes to clean is another reason I’m in love with this meal.
