Back to the norm...almost: Italian Green Bean Chicken

Tuesday, oh Tuesday. Last night Jordan and I were in our groove again, at least a semi-manic version of my groove. Jordan doesn't seem to know the sense of urgency so I guess we could say that we balanced each other out. After work I took off for the gym and Jordan was left to prepare dinner. Based on dinner plans for the rest of the week and the available ingredients he found this recipe online.

Italian Green Bean Chicken
serves 2


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
5 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 teaspoons minced fresh basil
5 ounces fresh green beans - rinsed, trimmed and steamed

1.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and saute until aromatic oils are released, then add chicken and cook through until no longer pink.
2.Stir in tomatoes and basil and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for another 3 to 5 minutes. Finally, stir in steamed beans and serve.
3. Cook pasta according to directions on box. Combine with chicken mix.

This was one of the recipes where the reviews were right on par. Sadly, the reviews weren't all that great. The flavor was barely there so the whole dish was somewhat bland, even with the fresh basil. It was OK, but needs a bit more tweaking to be great. We paired it with some pasta to add some carbs to the meal.

Now off to more wedding planning. 25 days and counting....
