Ranch Chicken with Potatoes & Green Beans

Ranch Chicken with Potatoes & Green beans, one dish meal from An Everyday Blessing

Do you love simple meals? You know, the meals with little prep and few dishes to clean up. Or how about meals that you don’t have to keep a close eye on?

If your answer is yes, then this meal is for you!

Sometime last year I found a recipe similar to this on Pinterest, except that it used Italian seasoning mix. The one I found was simply a picture with the ingredients and directions in the description, but it didn’t link back to any blog. Every time I made it I thought, “I wonder how this will taste with Ranch Seasoning?”

This past week I finally found out, and I ended up receiving rave reviews from my husband and son. What can I say! They are not always easy to please!! Andย I have to say, I like the ranch seasoning WAY better than the Italian seasoning.

This dish took all of 5 minutes to prep. The downside is that it bakes for an hour in the oven. The upside is that once it goes in the oven, you don’t have to think about it until the timer beeps. Another pro is that it only has 5 ingredients. It can’t get too much simpler than that.

Ranch Chicken with Potatoes & Green Beans

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tblsp Ranch Seasoning mix (you may buy a seasoning packet or see below for recipe)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6-8 red potatoes
  • 12 oz green beans (fresh or frozen)


  1. Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and place into 1/3 of a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Depending on size of chicken, you may want to slice them into smaller pieces. I had 2 large chicken breasts that were rather thick. So I sliced them in half down the middle to make them thinner (so much easier than pounding them out), then I cut them again in half to make two smaller pieces from each half. So each large breast makes four smaller pieces.ย  Place the chicken in the middle third of your baking dish.
  3. Fill up the remaining third of your baking dish with the green beans.
  4. Sprinkle entire dish evenly with Ranch Seasoning. Pour melted butter over all the food.
  5. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Ranch Seasoning Mix

I use the recipe from Heavenly Homemakers

  • 5 Tablespoons dried minced onions
  • 7 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix together and store in anย air tight container.

        Thank you! We did. I have made this several times since I left my comment. My family LOVES it! I use canned green beans and russet potatoes since that’s all I ever seem to have on hand. I also used asparagus once, but my hubby likes it with green beans better.

    What a perfect recipe for me! I drive an hour to and an hour from work and by the time I get home I don’t want to be standing at the stove forever. To put this together in a few minutes would be angelic! I don’t mind waiting the hour to cook; that allow me time to unwind. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Just wanted to know, when I read your recipe, I was looking for something new. I actually had everything needed (well I didn’t have fresh green beans but I used zucchini & squash and Anaheim chilis as a substitute) and I got up and put it together right then. It was WONDERFUL. Delicious, easy, & healthy!! thanks!!

  30. Alysha says:

    i made this last week and it was delicious! Hubby has already requested it again. He rarely requests a meal by name, so that’s saying something! Making it tonight.

  31. Monica says:

    I baked it for an hour at 350 but it still wasnt fully cooked. Anyone else had this problem? I had to turn up the heat in my oven and cook it longer.

  32. Donna says:

    Wonder if this could be adapted to a crock pot?

  33. Jessica S. says:

    I’ve been looking for new recipe’s for my family and this was a hit! Super easy and everyone liked it! Score! One happy momma here!

  34. Iva says:

    Hi, do you drain the fluid from the green beans? I am so looking forward to making this recipe.

  35. Paula says:

    I used canned green beans and 2 packages of Ranch Dressing. I cooked it an extra 25 minutes And it was perfect! This is our new favorite!

  36. jennifer says:

    I only used ranch packet on chicken, switched out green beans for yellow squash and butter for olive oil. Also used fresh rosemary and oregano from my herb garden on the entire dish. Baking now and gotta say it smells delish!!! Thanks for the great recipe idea!!!

  37. Margaret says:

    Has anyone tried this in the crockpot? Curious how it turned out and how long you let it cook.

  38. Caitlyn says:

    I have made a variation of this with italian dressing in place of the ranch, I felt it was a little dry so some tweaking needed, but otherwise delish! (made it this evening)

  40. Sophie says:

    amazing! the trick i found is to crank the heat and let the sauce thicken. while this is going on, i steam broccoli, snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, and bell pepper in my rice cooker. Combine the vegetables with the chicken for a minute to mix all the flavors and serve over rice. a staple in my household.

  41. Amanda says:

    Do you think this could be turned into a freezer meal?

    • Christie says:

      Potatoes don’t freeze well! This recipe takes barely any time to put together though. For me, it’s always a great “go-to” when I need a full meal and don’t have much time to prep or stand over a stove.

  42. Skyler says:

    This did not cook through in one hour and I only used 1.5 lbs. chx breast. Needs at least an extra 30 min.

  43. Erin says:

    I have made this about 5 times now and it is so delicious! I use chicken legs instead of breasts.

  44. Adri says:

    found this today and it is cooking in the oven ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t wait to eat it ๐Ÿ˜€ thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Rayshawn says:

    Any healthier suggestions to substitute the potatoes for that would work?

  46. Rachel says:

    I’m cooking this for my boyfriend for the first time tomorrow night! It seems pretty fool proof. But wish me luck anyway!!

  47. Nicole says:

    Same here, can tell this is tasty, but even after a hour and a half the potatoes are far from cooked

  48. Ashlie says:

    Do u use frozen or thawed chicken

  49. Kerri says:

    Has anyone tried to do this as a freezer meal? Do I cook first and then freeze, or keep it raw?

  50. Michelle Pendergast says:

    when I use the fresh veggies, green beans, potatoes and I normally add carrots I actually boil them for about 10 to 15 minutes prior to putting them in the oven. It gives the veggies a head start and the chicken doesn’t dry out.

  51. Carol Gee says:

    I just found you and am happy I did! Love the roasted Ranch chicken and veggies recipe. Do you ever post the nutritional information? Thanks!

  52. Clemente says:

    Can I use salad dressing from a. bottle ?

  53. Shan says:

    I didn’t have foil to cover it. Hopefully it still works ok ?
