Roast chicken breasts with Romano beans and tomatoes
Gluten Free, Paleo, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free
Romano beans are a lot like their green bean relations but sturdier, turning velvety without losing their shape when simmered. Here they soak up the flavors of oregano, garlic, and tomato, for a summery accompaniment to simple roast chicken. A piquant salad of parsley, almonds, and olives provides crunch.
