Chicken with Fire-Roasted Tomatoes
2 tbsp salt-free garlic herb seasoning blend (I used Pampered Chef Garlic & Herb Seasoning)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes, optional (I left them out)
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can (14.5 oz) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
3/4 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp butter
Mix the first 5 ingredients and rub over chicken. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Brown chicken on both sides.
In a 2-qt microwave-safe dish, combine beans and water; microwave, covered, on high 3-4 minutes. Drain. (mine took longer to seem ready to me...6 minutes).
Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Stir butter and beans into tomato mixture.
So let me tell you that my kids are very used to canned green beans. I love them so much, how mushy and salty they are. I could eat them every day. So fresh green beans, even when they're cooked, obviously have a very different texture. One that the younger two did not care for. I made them eat several, but I get it. It's not as yummy. Everybody else ate them all. The chicken was very good with the tomatoes, almost chicken parm-ish. Overall, this came together quickly and easily and it's a good summertime meal.
