Is there anything better than one pot meals? Super simple, shockingly delicious, and virtually zero cleanup. Makes cooking so worth it! All of the best parts, none of the worst parts. I love the way the flavors all blend together to create something beyond your typical dinner. Just perfection!

This One Pot BBQ Ranch Chicken Skillet is one of my favorite things I’ve made this year.

It’s on my short list for things I would love to make for my mom, and if she would approve, you know its good!! I’ll let you know her verdict as soon as I try it out on her. :)

I have been excited to get my hands on the NEW flavors from Hidden Valley® Ranch for weeks! SO many good options (Honey BBQ, Buffalo, Sriracha, and Cilantro Lime), but my favorite is the Cilantro Lime. The cilantro and lime are both subtle within the dressing and I am simply obsessed with it. I picked it up at Walmart (get location details and a COUPON here (75 cents off any 12oz or 16oz bottle of Hidden Valley® Ranch)), where picking up everything you need for easy meals is a breeze.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 15 ounce can of corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup Hidden Valley Cilantro Lime Ranch dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain white rice not instant rice
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 roma tomatoes diced
  • chopped cilantro green onion, and avocado for garnish
  • 1/4
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Heat oil in a large (12 inch) and deep skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Season chicken on each side with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place chicken skin side down in the skillet and cook each side for 5 minutes. Brush each side with bbq sauce while the other side cooks. Place chicken on a plate and set aside.
  5. Add corn and beans to the empty skillet (leaving the leftover oil in the skillet is fine) and allow to grill for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and ranch and stir to combine.
  6. Pour in the rice and stir to allow the rice to be coated in the ranch/oil mixture. Add the broth, water, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Place chicken back into the skillet as shown above. They will be about half way covered in the liquid. No need to stir, just set them right on top.
  7. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the cheese and tomatoes. Return to the oven for 5-10 more minutes or until cheese is fully melted and chicken is cooked through.
  9. Garnish with more cilantro, green onion, and avocado if desired. Enjoy!

My daughter will only eat broccoli with this dressing...this may be a great way to get her to eat chicken more often too.

I agree with the first commenter who said "After #6 it gets confusing". You don't say at what point to put the 'skillet' in the oven. The last ingredient is also missing. It just says "1/4. ". It doesn't say of what. May I respectfully ask that you state it should be an oven-proof skillet with a lid in your notes and that you answer the above two questions? This sounds like an awesome recipe but I am not a good enough cook to figure these things out without clarification. Thank you!
