A simple, healthy yet flavorful dinner that's done in 30 minutes and leaves only 1 pan to clean up.
Ingredients
  • 4 pieces of chicken - such as 2 breasts and 2 thighs- I suggest with skin on
  • 1 Tbl ghee
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 small yellow onion, small dice
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 medium carrots, small dice
  • 1 sweet potato, small dice
  • 1½ cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 Tbl chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 large handfuls baby spinach
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Heat a large oven-safe skillet (such as a cast iron Lodge pan) over medium heat.
  3. Melt the ghee in the pan.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken on all sides.
  5. When pan is hot, place chicken skin side down into pan and sear until golden brown, about 7-10 minutes.
  6. Flip chicken over, then add onion and stir it around to disperse around the chicken.
  7. Add garlic, then carrots and sweet potatoes, allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to low, add chicken broth and then rosemary - allow broth to come to a simmer.
  9. Add spinach and stir it around the chicken as it wilts.
  10. Add tomato sauce around the chicken, I don't cover the skin of the chicken with sauce as that will cause the skin to lose crispiness.
  11. Sprinkle parsley over top.
  12. Place entire pan into oven for about 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165.
  13. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. Careful, your pan is hot!
