This is a very easy way to make the most delicious, tender veggies! The baby carrots, onions and butter make everything taste almost sweet! Very good!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups chicken bouillon, more if needed
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 12 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder, more if desired
  • 4 -6 red potatoes, unpeeled (quartered or cut into small chunks)
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 12-2 cups baby carrots (or 1/2 small bag)


  1. In large baking dish with lid, place all ingredients.*There should be enough liquid to just cover.
  2. Cover and bake in 350ºF oven for about 2 hours or til very tender.
  3. Stir occasionally.
  4. This goes nicely, (and easily), with roasted chicken which bakes for the same amount of time at the same temperature. A no-fuss meal!
  5. *If you substitute chicken broth for the bouillon, you will need to add salt.
  6. **You can remove veggies from broth and thicken to a gravy if desired. To make it into gravy, bring the broth to a low boil in a small frying pan or saucepan.
  7. Add 1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp cold water. Pour in and stir for 1-2 minutes. It will thicken immediately.
  8. Add slowly to get the desired thickness of gravy. You may not need it all, or may want to add even more. (Thicken it to your own liking).
  9. ***You can also make this on the stove quickly if desired. Bring to a boil, then simmer til veggies are tender. About 20-30 minutes.

Oh my goodness, I just finished eating this and I think I am going to pop! This recipe looked good so I thought I would try it. I had one chicken breast in the freezer that I needed to use, so I thawed it and browned it a little in one tablespoon of butter. then I put it in the middle of my casserole and added the potatoes, carrots, and onions around it. In the same pan that I browned the chicken breast, I added the two tablespoons of butter and the rest of the ingredients. I heated the mixture a little bit and poured it over the chicken, potatoes, carrots and onions. I put it in the oven at 350 for two hours. I thickened the broth and served it with a salad. It was so very delicious!!! I can see me adding frozen peas and calling it chicken stew.<br/>Thank you so much Wildflour for submitting this. I will add it to my favorites.

This tastes fabulous. I wanted a quicker cooking time so cooked in the microwave for about 15 mins beforehand before transferring to the oven. These are sweet tasting & full of flavour, a great vegie side! Thanks for posting! I think these could be cooked fully in the microwave too if you wanted dinner quicker!

Simple, easy, tasty. These days I grab such recipes, instead of very fancy ones! I used beef stock because the flavour is slightly more intense than chicken. This made, with stuffed tomatoes, a great side dish to roast chicken. I made mine on the stovetop. Thanks!!
