This is a dish that I cook very often. Mostly because it is very easy to make and healthy as well. Here you can see the chicken which was fried in olive oil for about 10 minutes, and the fresh, peeled, mashed tomatoes which were added in the process. Frozen Green Beans added in the saucepan After a stir, all ingredients are in the saucepan ready to be cooked. The dish is almost ready. We need to allow the liquid to be reduced a bit more. Food is ready to be served. In this post you can find the recipe as I cook it and a variation of it. The variation recipe makes it a bit more rich in flavor and it adds a bit more calories to each portions. Green Beans and Chicken with Tomatoes 6 Servings 1 chicken cut into 6 pieces (or 6 chicken portions) 1 kg of thin Green Beans (frozen) 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil 3 big fresh tomatoes (peeled and mashed) 1 glass of warm water Salt Pepper Preparation Method 1) Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the chicken portions. Fry for 10 minutes in both sides until chicken becomes golden brown. 2) Add the tomatoes; simmer for 2-3 minutes. 3) Stir in the Green Beans; add water, salt and pepper to taste, and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to minimum. 4) Serve warm. Variation – You can use the same quantity of fresh Green Beans instead of frozen. – Before you add the chicken pieces in the frying pan you can add 1 chopped onion. – At stage four (4) of preparation method, you can add chicken or vegetable stock instead of water. – Finally, you can omit chicken and make it a vegan dish.
