2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. While the chicken is cooking and cooling, prepare the green beans.


Prep and cook the green beans

  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half. 
  • Coarsely chop the almonds for garnish.

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the green beans and tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown and soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the paprika and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the marinara, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken and green beans and tomatoes to individual plates. Garnish the beans and tomatoes with the almonds and serve the green romesco on the side.
