Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the green beans

  • Trim the stem ends from the green beans if needed.
Bring a medium sauce pot of water, salted if desired, to a boil. Add the beans and cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Cut the beans into ½-inch lengths.
While the water heats and the beans cook, prepare the chicken.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper and the garlic-herb blend.
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 once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the salsa

  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.
  • Coarsely chop the artichokes.
  • Rinse the chickpeas.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a large bowl, combine the green beans, bell pepper, artichokes, chickpeas, and parsley. Add the Italian vinaigrette and toss to coat. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper.
