Tender coated chicken breasts with crispy green beans smothered in a sweet, sticky and zesty sauce...need I say more? I absolutely love this flavor combo! This is a terrific recipe to have on hand when you are looking for that easy, yet tasty recipe.
Believe it or not, there are some days I just don’t feel like cooking. But, then again I still want something that is homemade. I sit there torn on what to do. If you ever get in those moods like myself, this is the perfect recipe for you. It can easily be whipped up and all you need is 4 main ingredients with a few other pantry staples and you’re in business! Dinner will be whipped up in no time.
Now, when it specifically comes to chicken, it tends to be a popular protein people usually have on hand, I am guilty of that. There is so much you can do with it, but who wants to continue to resort to the same teriyaki or grilled chicken. Don’t get me wrong, love those, but sorry not again, not me! I am always looking for new ways to make it delicious, easy, healthy and anything but boring.
So, with that being said, I love this dish because of it’s simplicity and taste. There are not a ton of hard ingredients, it’s fast cooking and flavorsome. My go to is serving this with steamed white rice on the side. But, I’m Asian and I eat white rice with everything, so there is no surprise there ha. If you are looking for other alternatives, this also pairs will with pasta, cauliflower rice or quinoa to name a few.
Anytime I enjoy a chicken dish I always feel the need to incorporate some sort of green. Getting those greens and vegetables in is important! My common go to is chicken and broccoli, but since I wanted to get creative and change things up, one of my other favorite greens is green beans. They have such a vibrant color, are a good source of vitamins and minerals and they have a nice crunch to them. I must say they paired perfectly in this dish!
