Ok folks, hold on to your hats, because today’s dish is one of my new favorite recipes! And I bet that after making it, it’ll be one of your favorites too.
Allow me to explain just why this dish has become so popular in my house (and why I’ve already made it 3 times). First of all, this is truly a one pan meal. Sometimes a recipe will SAY that it’s a one pan meal, but by the time you’ve chopped onions, peeled potatoes, and done all the other prep, you’ve actually got cutting boards, choppers, peelers, knives, measuring spoons, strainers, and practically a sink full of dishes to wash, even though it only cooked in one pan. This recipe will ONLY dirty the one pan you cook everything on, and one knife (and a cutting board if you use one, but I just cut my potatoes right on the granite countertop).
I prepped this entire meal (which means cut potatoes, put everything on the pan, sprinkled with olive oil, seasoning, and garlic) in no more than 5 minutes. 5 minutes! That’s it! Then it just cooks in the oven for about 25 minutes, and the result is a DELICIOUS meal with main course and sides already built in! See that little layer of liquid in the bottom of the pan? That juice is FULL of flavor. So when you serve, be sure to drizzle some of the juice on top, and you will be surprised at how flavorful this simple meal really is.
This meal is also a low calorie meal, at only 533 calories per serving. But that includes meat, green beans, and potatoes. So just over 500 calories for an ENTIRE dinner is pretty great!

- 16 ounces baby red potatoes, halved (or quartered if large so they cook through)
