One-Pan Thanksgiving Dinner
A skillet-top meal for two. This easy dish will have you feasting on classic holiday flavors for dinner, with just one dish in the sink.
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 50 minutes
- Yield: 2
- 1 large sweet potato
- 3 Tbsp Italian breadcrumbs
- 3 Tbsp grated parmesan
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cloves garlic, finely crushed
- 1 1/2 cups fresh green beans, snipped
- 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
- 3 Tbsp honey
- Salt and pepper

Pierce sweet potato with a fork. Microwave for 6-7 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool, peel and dice into bite-sized pieces.
In a shallow bowl or pie pan, mix together breadcrumbs and parmesan. Press chicken into mixture, coat both sides.
Melt butter over medium-high heat in a Good Cook Touch Skillet. Add garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes. Place chicken breasts in pan, brown on both sides.
Add diced sweet potato, green beans and cranberries to pan. Drizzle with honey, and spray with a light layer of olive oil, using the Good Cook Oil Sprayer.
Turn heat to medium and cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. If needed, cover with a lid to ensure chicken cooks through without burning.
Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley.
