This quick recipe from The Good to Go Cookbook by Kathleen Cannata Hanna is perfect for anyone trying to wedge a homemade dinner between soccer practice and dance recitals during this busy time of year.

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch discs
1 cup frozen green beans
Salt and pepper

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add the chicken, and cook for 5 minutes per side.

2. Add the broth, seasoning, potato, and green beans; bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low.
