Green bean chicken
This chicken is so simple and comforting. The trick is to make it when you have a pot of chicken soup cooking so you can use that stock directly. If you use homemade chicken soup or stock for this recipe you will love it ten times more!

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Sprinkle the chicken evenly with 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper.
  2. Prepare a large skillet (that is oven proof) on high heat. Add the olive oil and get hot. Add the chicken and sear for 6 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add half the chicken stock and use a wooden spoon to scrape up all the brown bits, deglazing the pan.
  4. Add the shallots, garlic and let cook for 5 more minutes, mixing once or twice.
  5. Add the chicken back in and the remaining chicken stock, cover and place in oven for 55 minutes.
  6. Add the green beans and cook uncovered for 10 more minutes.
  7. Remove and add fresh basil right before serve.
