Lemony Herbed Chicken and Green Beans

I completely believe simple is always a winner!

This recipe is featured in both my C1 Challenge and my weekly meal planning service, Simply17.

I’m a total sucker for simple recipes. Take, for instance, this Lemony Herbed Chicken and Green Beans.

At the core it’s chicken and green beans right?

But the difference between boring chicken and green beans are the subtle ingredients you use to make a huge flavor impact.

Take lemons, for instance.

Lemons brighten any dish!

Using the juice and/or the zest of lemons in a main dish will brighten up the flavor in no time!

Adding your favorite herbs to the dish give it an “earthy” tone.

In this recipe, we’re using a combination of rosemary and thyme.

These two herbs pair perfectly in this dish.

Herbs bring an earthy flavor to your main dish

Plus, when you keep it simple with simple, yet powerful ingredients, you’re not only virtually guaranteeing a lovely dinner, but you’re also saving a ton of time and energy by keeping the basics in mind.
