When it’s about a weeknight dinner, I love ONE POT DISHES! One pot prep is always so simple and easy. And you’ll have complete and delicious meal for your family with less dirty dishes to clean after.
One pot chicken recipes are always my first choice for weeknight dinners. We have chicken for dinner several times a week.

What is Chicken Vesuvio:
But, let’s get back to this Chicken Vesuvio Recipe. Chicken Vesuvio is a dish made with skin-on bone-in chicken things. Chicken things are first roasted in a skillet, then baked in the oven. As a side with chicken you have potato chunks, peas and delicious garlic, herb and white wine sauce. It’s complete, flavorful dish made in one skillet.
White wine-garlic sauce with olive oil, butter, oregano and thyme is simply delicious. I like to mop it with crusted bread. If you and your family like that, too, then I suggest you to double the recipe for the sauce.
Finally, you can drizzle some freshly squeezed lemon juice on top and sprinkle with fresh parsley, But it’s very delicious and flavorful even without that.
With Chicken Vesuvio served for dinner, you family will enjoy as if you went to a luxury restaurant for fancy meal.
