Easy Chicken Dinner Idea

Easy chicken dinners are some of our very favorite recipes!  Pan fried chicken pieces simmered in flavorful red sauce with browned cubed potatoes, it’s an amazing dinner.  Serve with a loaf of crusty bread and salad then you are good to go!

How to Make the Best Chicken Dinner

After you brown your chicken pieces, brown your cubed potatoes with onion and garlic.

Add a large can of crushed tomatoes and give a good stir.

Nestle your chicken pieces right in the sauce and potatoes and bake partially covered for about an hour.

I like to serve Chicken Ragout Dinner right in the pan. But it’s also great served with spoonfuls of sauce or on top of cooked pasta!

What To Serve With Chicken Ragout

  1. I like to prepare a nice large green salad with lots of vegetables and a variety of salad dressings.
  2. Serve this chicken dinner with a nice loaf of crusty bread.  Season with garlic makes it even better!
  3. Steamed vegetables are another great side dish for this recipe.

    Two questions – what temperature do we cook this recipe at? And what does “bake partially covered” mean?

    1. Melissa

      I cooked it at 350 for 50 minutes and mine was done. Partially covered just means don’t cover it all the way… I put a loose piece of tin foil over mine that was just smaller than the round pot, so the 4 corners left an opening. I’m not sure if that’s the best way, but it worked! 🙂

    I’ve got chicken and a boat load of tomatoes from my MIL from our last visit home that have to be used!! Guess I know what I’m making for dinner!!! Beautiful Jenny!
