Green Bean & Sundried Tomato Chicken

We’re huge chicken eaters in our house–mostly because it’s affordable, it’s versatile, it’s adaptable, and it’s delicious! I love to experiment with different chicken dishes: It’s so easy to make an impressive chicken dish with simple ingredients, and that’s just what this Green Bean & Sundried Tomato Chicken Recipe is!

Green Bean and Sundried Tomato ChickenI think the flavor of sundried tomatoes is just out of this world, so I was really pumped to try this idea (and any other idea involving sundried tomatoes).  And the green beans not only up the vegetable factor, they also add a beautiful pop of color! It’s my firm belief that you should make a dish as pretty as possible, and I think this recipe totally accomplishes that.

In addition to the prettiness, the chicken is also soaking in a creamy sundried tomato sauce that is incredibly yummy and great over pasta. I served this with Rotelli and it was perfect. But it would also be great by itself, served over rice, or with sliced Italian bread. I just like to soak up the juices as much as possible–don’t we all? And my stomach just started to growl as I typed that.

Green Bean and Sundried Tomato ChickenAnother really great thing about this recipe is that it reheats wonderfully. I always make a little extra for us so that Stephen and I can both pack lunches for the next day, and we both came home and said the same thing: “That chicken was great reheated.” Since that’s not true for a lot of dishes, we were pleasantly surprised. And that means it’ll get added to the regular dinner rotation 🙂
