Origins of the Recipe

The origins of this dish are somewhat unclear, but it is believed to have originated in the southern regions of Italy, where simple and rustic cooking is the norm. Traditionally, the dish was made with chicken pieces on the bone, potatoes, onions, and herbs, baked in a clay pot over an open fire. Over time, the recipe evolved to include green beans and other vegetables, as well as the addition of dry Italian dressing mix, which adds a zesty and flavorful kick to the dish.


2-3 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
3-5 small to medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 – 2 cans of green beans, drained
1 packet (0.7 oz) of dry Italian dressing mix
1 stick (1/2 cup) of unsalted butter, melted


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
In a 9×13 inch baking dish, combine the chicken, potatoes, and green beans.
Sprinkle the Italian dressing mix evenly over the chicken and vegetables.
Drizzle the melted butter over the top.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender.
Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
Let the dish cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
