About Chicken Ratatouille

This is the easy version of a classic French dish. Zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes cooked in one pot with seasoned chicken for a healthy, flavorful, and comforting fall dish.

One-pot dinners made with seasonal vegetables are easy to and quick to prepare. You can ‘whip up’ a delicious dish in just one pan, starting by cooking the meat (like chicken), adding seasoning and vegetables. This is a great way to enjoy eggplant, zucchini, and ripe juicy tomatoes. For a vegetarian version, skip the chicken. Add chickpeas or black beans for greater protein intake, if desired – but say bye-bye to weight-loss variation.

This Chicken Ratatouille is filling comfort food, perfect for chilly fall days. Serve it with rice, mashed potatoes, or with salad.

The best part of this instant-pot dinner is that all of the ingredients cook at the same time, so it’s as simple as tossing them all together – including the chicken. You don’t need to cook them in stages.

What goes well with Chicken ratatouille

You can serve my special instant-pot chicken ratatouille all on its own as a low-carb and light dinner or cook some pasta or rice to serve on the side. I enjoyed it with some buttery orzo.

It’s also great served like curry, with a generous scoop of rice. You can also prepare mashed potatoes and put the ratatouille on top. Add some cheese and feast!

 

 

Notes and Tips

  • Traditionally, Ratatouille is made with tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, or yellow squash.
  • Sometimes potatoes are added.
  • You can skip fresh tomatoes and use canned diced tomatoes. Adjust the recipe as needed.
  • I like to use fresh juicy tomatoes, especially straight from the garden.
  • I think sweet potatoes, squash, and even pumpkin would be a great addition as well.
  • You can peel zucchini and eggplant for this recipe or leave the skin on. It’s up to your preference.
