This One-Post Chicken Vesuvio has all the flavor of the classic Italian-American dish, but without all the steps. You can easily make this on a weeknight and get rave reviews. So good and so easy!!


  • 4 6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 & 1/2 lbs small red potatoes unpeeled, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup frozen peas thawed (we like 'petite' peas)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  1. Pat breasts dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add breasts and cook until well browned, about 4 minutes per side, transfer to plate (they will finish cooking in a bit in the skillet).
  4. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to now-empty skillet and heat until shimmering.
  5. Add potatoes, cut sides down, and cook until golden brown, about 7 minutes.
  6. Stir in garlic, rosemary, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  7. Add stock and wine, scraping up any browned bits, and bring to a boil.
  8. Place breasts on top of potatoes in skillet (this will steam the chicken w/out letting them have direct contact with the hot skillet, and over cooking them).
  9. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender and breasts register 160 degrees, about 12 -13 minutes.
  10. Using slotted spoon, transfer breasts and potatoes to platter and tent loosely with foil.
  11. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, until sauce is reduced to 1 cup, about 5 minutes.
  12. Stir in peas and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
  13. Off heat, whisk in butter and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  14. Pour sauce over breasts and potatoes.
