One Pot Mediterranean Chicken

Discover the story
We love a good one-pot recipe around here and this colorful meal will bring a WOW factor to your table!

If you aren’t familiar with a one-pot meal, it’s an entire dish that can be made in just one pot. That’s right, it means LESS CLEANUP, and we are all about it.

All of these ingredients in this One-Pot Mediterranean Chicken work well together, but what we love most is the addition of the wine and vinegar to the sauce that adds so much flavor to the dish!

This One Pot Mediterranean Chicken was a big hit in the WOT test kitchen (it’s going to be on repeat), and we know you will love it too. It’s a really good go-to meal for weeknight dinners because it is quick and easy and again, not very much cleanup!

We served ours with couscous, but rice or a simple potato would work great too. You can definitely get a little creative and figure out how you like to serve this meal. For a salad pairing with this meal, try this Mixed Greens and Roasted Pear Salad.
