Share your favorite one pot meal recipes

As a full time working mom of 2 young kids, I often search for easy but tasty weekday(and weekend) one pot meals that are relatively easy to prepare.
Over the years, I've tried many recipes and these are some of my favorite one pot meal recipes. It will be nice to try other tried and true recipes of fellow Chowhouders.

-Chicken with shallots - I made this over the weekend and it was fantastic...rich, deep flavor of Southern France.

-Chicken coconut milk with lemongrass - So so good. I add ginger and lemon peels and juice.

-Chicken thigh with bell peppers and onion- another winning dish. I use chicken thigh with bones for extra flavor

-Chicken stew with tomatoes and white beans- this is one version. I add chopped kale and mushroom. bacon always add extra flavor.

-Chicken tagine- While this isn't exactly an one pot meal, with a bit of planning, you can make a quick weeknight meal. I just steam the riced cauliflower in microwave to eat it with the sauce. I also make the almond cinnamon sauce in batch on weekend.

-Marcella Hazan's salmon with bell pepper and capers- So easy to make and so good.

-Chicken with mushroom cream sauce- This recipe is one version of many. I use chicken with skin and bone. I like to add dried porcini mushroom if available in my pantry.

And then there are one pot dishes where I just saute all the vegetables I have in the fridge with chopped bacon and make it into shakshuka with eggs, etc. Stewed chicken with soy sauce, mirin, ginger, honey, garlic,onion and large chunks of sweet potatoes. I always have chopped leeks, mushrooms, peas, carrots, peeled ginger pieces and frozen cooked rice in my freezer. With these, I can make fried rice and base for many stews.

Please share yours too. I might try it tonight!
