Chicken and Two Bean Skillet

I love one pan skillet meals. You don't have to worry about side dishes, cause your veggies, meat and everything are all combined. Clean up is easy. But most importantly, it's colorful, which means that my toddler is more willing to eat it since it's visually appealing. I was a little hesitant to make this because it's pretty healthy, which is typically game over for my husband, but he actually liked it and had not two, but three portions. 

3/4 lb green beans, trimmed, cut into bite size pieces
salt and pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1 14oz can white beans

Combine green beans and one cup of lightly salted water in microwave safe bowl; cover. Microwave on high until beans are crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain.

In a bowl, whisk 2 tbsp oil along with mustard, vinegar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Add green beans, white beans, and tomatoes. Toss to coat.

Preheat 2 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While pan is heating, chop raw chicken into bite size chunks. Cook chicken in pan until cooked all the way through. Once chicken is cooked, add the shallot and cook until softened. About 3 minutes. Add the tomato and bean mixture and cook until all is heated through, about 7 minutes. Then serve. 


  1. This looks so tasty! I may have to make it via 1 bean style because my husband absolutely refuses to eat beans ... lucky me! And think I would add corn to it because my toddler is currently obsessed with all things corn! I think I'll add this to the menu next week. :)

    1. Corn would be a great addition! My little man is all about corn too!

  2. I love skillet meals too! It actually took me some time to get adjusted to this method of cooking since I grew up making things separately but, it's really just so brilliant and efficient!! haha

    1. I know! And bonus, there are way less dishes to clean up!

  3. this looks like such a yummy recipe! i will try! <3


  4. This looks so good!
