  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet with a lid over medium heat, and sear the chicken breasts, skin side down, for 5 minutes, until the chicken starts to brown.
  2. Turn the chicken breasts over, add the potatoes and carrots, and sprinkle with paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat for 35 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, the chicken is no longer pink inside, and the chicken and vegetables have brown, crisp spots on the bottom.

This was OK, but very bland. If I were to make it again, I'd double or triple the seasonings.

Very tasty!! I followed the recipe as directed as I believe in doing it the cooks way the first time and see if I need to tweak it after that. To my family and I this needed no tweaking at all! ...

This was a very good, complete, one skillet meal. I substituted olive oil for the butter. I will definetly be making it again.

My whole family loved this. I did change it up a little, but it's a great base recipe. I sauteed onions and garlic along with the chicken that I couldn't help but sprinkle with a little bit of l...

This is QED: quick, easy, and delicious--just what I need on a busy (or lazy) day. NOTE TO PANCAKE 1017: Potatoes will cook in plenty of time if you start them in the microwave at full power f...

I tried this yesterday, and it turned out very well. I had to however add more salt than what was suggested, otherwise, the taters were going to be pretty bland. It was tasty. My husband had ...
