This is actually a repeat of a recipe I’ve posted before. I am posting it again because I absolutely love this easy recipe – and I am showing a new variation of this one pan meal. I am always looking for fast & easy meals for 2 people. This is one I’ve made a hundred ways – and it is always good. I love this recipe because it is easy (prep time is 5 minutes) and it only uses one pan. And, I can stick it in the oven, let it bake an hour while I work, and tada! Dinner is served!

MomTip: The Dinner Daily is - hands-down - my favorite paid-for meal planner. You can ask all my family members – I’ve talked their ears off about this planner. It is only $4/month – and they send you customized meal plans that match the sales from your local grocery store. Also – they allow you to mix-and-match the 5 dinner recipes with any from their repository – so you never get a recipe you don’t like. This meal plan has given me so much sanity! Get 2 weeks for free to test it out.


This time around, I only used 4 ingredients. And it was so good. Here is the recipe:

One Pan Meal: Dinner for 2 with 4 ingredients
  • Uncle Ben’s Rice Mix
  • Two Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • One can of chicken broth
  • One can of green beans
  1. Mix the rice and broth in the bottom of a greased 13×9 baking pan.  I add the seasoning packet in this step to flavor the rice (or add later on top of the chicken).  On top of the rice, layer the vegetables and chicken breasts.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake for one hour in a preheated oven at 350 degrees.  That’s it!  The rice cooks around the chicken and veggies, making an easy one-pan meal.
  2. An easy alternative is to add potatoes instead of rice.  I add cut-up New Potatoes and layer with the veggies and chicken.  I like to add a few tablespoons of melted butter over the potatoes.  Actually, you could add melted butter over any variation of this.  The butter adds so much flavor.  Enjoy!
