I found this recipe on Pinterest or Facebook (I have searched for the original recipe and have yet to find it.) The one link I was able to follow said it was their Go To chicken dinner, thus the name.
Now, I have made it at-least once a month since I first found it. WE LOVE THIS RECIPE! So, I thought I’d share it with you. The original post used green beans for the vegetable. I have used canned Italian green beans (We don’t care for green beans so much. But, if you like ’em by all means use ’em.) zucchini, yellow squash, and even made a smaller version of my Bigmama’s Squash Casserole (recipe soon) on the side. I think the next time I catch fresh asparagus on sale, (if I can remember to grab some) I’m gonna try that sometime too.
I’ve used Market Street’sTexas Tumbler chicken breasts once or twice, but I think plain ole boneless, skinless chicken breast work the best.
New potatoes are good but I usually just have russet potatoes around so that’s what I use. I leave the peels on for us, more nutrition that away, but if you want to peel ’em, go for it. What I’m dancing around the bush again to say is this. The possibilities are limited to your imagination.
That little roll you see on the plate there is one of Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate’s “Ten Minute Rolls” You’ll find the recipe here. Hope you’ll try this recipe soon and that y’all like it as much as we do. I’m gonna go eat now.
GO-TO CHICKEN DINNER
3 large, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3-4 yellow squash, zucchini or a combination of both, sliced
3-4 small russet potatoes, cut in about 1 inch cubes. I leave the skins on but you could peel them if you’d like.

Preheat oven to 350*. Spray 9X13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken breasts in the center of the
casserole dish, lengthwise. Place cubed potatoes on one side of the chicken. Place sliced squash, on side of the chicken. Melt the stick of butter in a microwave safe bowl about 1 minute on high power in the microwave. Add the dry
Italian dressing mix to the butter and whisk together til well mixed. Pour the butter/dressing mixture over the chicken,
potatoes and veggies. Cover with foil. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. So delicious and couldn’t be easier.
