Beyond Easy One Pot Meal
I love easy and I love one pot meals. My crockpot is my best friend several days of the week. I love the easy clean up and the fact that I can have a hot and nutritious dinner ready for my family.
Tonight I decided to do just a little twist on traditional potatoes and greens beans. I wanted it to be as close to a full as possible.
I started with 1lb frozen ground chicken. I put mine in my crockpot for 2 hrs on high checking periodically to break it up. My crockpot cooks very high so it will cook completely frozen meat without any problem.
Once the meat was cooked through I peeled and sliced 5 small to medium potatoes and layered on top of the meat. Then I added 2 cans of green bean, including the liquid from 1 can. I drizzled on some olive oil, sprinkled on some pepper, oregano and garlic and let it cook on high for 2+ hours more (until the potaotes were nice and soft)
Crockpot times may vary!
This turned out to be a super yummy meal. I will be making this again.
