Potato, Chicken, and Green Bean Bake

If you've seen this meal idea floating around Pinterest, I'm here to say it's as good and as easy as advertised.  The options for spice flavoring are endless and you can't beat having just one pan to wash up after dinner, especially since my family basically licks the pan clean making my job even easier!  I've made this twice now, both times to requests for more and each time making a couple adjustments.  So I'm posting here what I'll do in the future.  

2-3 cups fresh or frozen green beans
4-6 medium potatoes, washed well (peeled if you want) and cut into large chunks
2 pounds chicken, cut into large portions (I used a combination of breasts and thighs, cutting the breasts into halves and the thigh into thirds)
1/3 cup butter
3 Tbsp seasoning mix (see below for some suggestions)

Preheat oven to 350.

Using a 9x13 baking dish, place vegetables and chicken in rows with the chicken in the middle (see photo above).  Cut butter into chunks, distributing over the pan evenly.  Sprinkle seasoning evenly on top of everything.  Cover with foil.  Bake 60 minutes.  Done!  (If you want more crispy/textured potatoes, bake un-covered.  But stir the potatoes once half-way through to help them cook more evenly).

Seasoning suggestions:
Ranch Dressing mix packet (this was our favorite)
simple salt and pepper
Lemon Pepper
