Liesa's Throw and Go

My communications with my Aunt Liesa usually go something like this, "What time can we come to the pool?", "What is the temperature?", "What foods should I bring?" Recently, I got a text and photo that looked very similar to the one below. The message was something like, "I made this; it was easy; you should share on the blog."

I didn't have all the ingredients my aunt recommended.  No potatoes, but sweet potatoes.  No Italian dressing mix, but savory herb and garlic.  I figured it was worth a try.  One of the easiest and best meals I have ever made. EVER.

I couldn't keep my mouth shut about it, so lots of my coworkers have tried it with various soup mixes and dressing packets-ranch and Italian were favorites.


  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4-5 sweet potatoes, quartered (or red potatoes)
  • 2 cans of green beans, drained
  • 1 package of Lipton Recipe Secrets Savory Herb and Garlic soup mix
  • 1/4 of a stick of butter, melted 
  • Optional-chicken broth (a few times I've not thawed my chicken enough so I threw in the broth midway through cooking to keep from drying out the beans and spuds)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use a 9 x 11 baking dish; spray lightly with olive oil.
  3.  Add beans, chicken, and sweet potatoes into thirds of the dish.
  4. Top with soup mix or dressing mix of your choice and melted butter.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil. Cook for 45-55  minutes.  Uncover and cook for 5 more minutes.

Second time-going with red potatoes

TIME: 5-10 minutes prep, 30-40 minutes baking time
