Chicken and Potato One-Pan Meal

I love one-pan meals. Only one pan is dirtied, and all the flavors from the different foods come together for a great-tasting meal. I usually make these during the winter months, but feel free to make them any time. The sheer number of vegetable, protein, and seasoning combinations is remarkable.

These meals are a great way to use up leftovers as well.

Mine is ready when some of the white potatoes are a bit crispy, while others are more on the mushy side. Make yours the way you like.


1-2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 small white potato

1 small sweet potato

1/4 to 1/2 cup precooked chicken

seasonings to taste: sea salt, pepper, and cilantro

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a skillet.
  2. Wash the vegetables and pat dry with a towel.
  3. Chop the white potato, adding it to the pan.
  4. Peel and chop the sweet potato, adding them to the pan when the white potato chunks are about half done.
  5. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until everything is just about done cooking, stirring every so often.
  6. Add the seasonings to the pan. Cook for another minute and the meal is done.


  • Use a variety of different foods, experimenting each time you make this dish.
  • Use leftovers from other meals to save money.
  • Grow your own herbs to save even more money.

Serving Suggestions

(While this can be served as an all-in-one meal, you can also add other elements.)

  • Try serving this with a smoothie for a fruit serving.
  • Or with a side salad of greens, sliced cucumber, and grape tomatoes.
