I’m a little obsessed with this recipe for chipotle chicken and green beans. It’s SO simple to make and yet it SCREAMS flavor. It doesn’t whisper flavor… it SCREAMS it. Sorry for the caps lock… I’ll stop (for now). But really, you must try this chicken recipe. It’s a little spicy, a little smoky and perfectly savory. It’s surprisingly delicious given how little effort it takes to make.
I love how I can come up with amazing recipes when I’m not even trying. ::eye roll:: I know, I sound like I’m really full of myself, right? I can practically see you rolling your eyes. Or maybe you’re like hey, she’s a food blogger, it’s a good thing she’s a fabulous cook, right? Um, neither of those are completely true. I’m not super full of myself (well, not all the time) and I’m also not the best cook in the universe or anything (maybe just the world? heh 😉 or maybe just in MY world. I really hope you guys get my jokes…). The truth is these past two weeks I’ve had one recipe flop after another. If I wouldn’t happily make a dish over and over again – it doesn’t make the blog. And lately, I’ve been a little off my recipe development game. It happens. Anyway, one night after a recipe flop, I decided to throw together a quick dinner. Out of habit, I measured all of the ingredients I used and took notes on my iPhone while I was cooking. AND I’M SO GLAD I DID.
Because this happened:
An easy dish loaded with flavor. What more can you want for a weeknight meal? I’m sure you will love this as much as we did 🙂
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and spices and cook until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
- Add green beans and stir-fry for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for another 5 minutes or until the green beans are tender.
