I realized today I have exactly 856 pounds of frozen chicken breasts in my freezer. While clearly that is an appropriate amount of poultry to keep on hand, I began to think that next week's menu must include a couple of chicken dishes. 

And while I like to cook, I am a painfully lazy cook. And there are few things lazier than one pot meals. 

Oh the beauty of a meal requiring only one pan. Saving on time, dishes, and sanity- one pot meals make busy weeknight meals actually doable. 

Most one pot meals come together in 30 minutes or less and are extremely freaking delicious!

Due to the aforementioned chicken hoarding issue- I decided a whole post dedicated to one pot chicken meals was wildly appropriate. Enjoy!
