Chicken and Green Beans in Garlic Sauce

Sharing is Tasty ~

Yep, once again I’m bringing you a deliciously garlicky dish. Do you really mind at all that this blog is garlic-happy? I know I’m not the only garlic lover out there! I developed this recipe for Chicken and Green Beans in Garlic Sauce in my quest to make more sauces with Greek yogurt. If you liked my recipe for Chicken & Potatoes in a Garlic Rosemary Sauce, you’ll like this one, too!

 

This dish is straight protein and veggies, so it’s low in fat and low in calories. However, the flavor it packs is awesome! The roasted garlic sauce has a smooth, creamy texture, and paired with savory garlic. A touch of lemon zest really elevates the sauce, strengthening the flavor profile.

I chose to use Greek yogurt for the sauce because it’s a great way to get that creamy effect without using the traditional dairy products that are high in fat (sour cream, heavy cream, etc.). Yogurt gives you a little extra protein, too. Just be sure to get fat free plain Greek yogurt that does not contain any sweeteners.

I chose green beans to go in this dish because, well, I love them. But more importantly, they contain some key nutrients that our bodies need. Green beans are high in vitamin A, C, and K. Plus, they're a great source of folic acid and fiber.

Between the chicken, green beans, garlic and Greek yogurt, this is dish holds significant nutritional values, all of which we could use a bit more of this time of year. See how yogurt and garlic (amongst others foods) can boost your immune system.

In the meantime, I hope you try out this recipe for Chicken and Green Beans in Garlic Sauce and enjoy every bite of it!

Instructions
  1. In a large saute pan, add the four chicken breasts and season with poultry seasoning. Add the garlic into the pan and the chicken broth. Cover and begin cooking over medium heat.
  2. Stir occasionally to keep the chicken pieces from sticking together. Put the Greek yogurt into a small bowl or cup. Once the chicken is about 3/4 of the way done (around 145 degrees), take a spoonful or two of the liquid in the pan and add to the yogurt. This will help to not shock the yogurt with high temperatures.
  3. Remove the chicken from the heat for a moment and clear a space in the middle of the pan. Add the yogurt mix back in and stir until it blends in and you can't see white of the yogurt.
  4. Return the pan to the burner and turn the heat up. Add the butter and finish cooking until the chicken reaches 162 degrees. Add in the steamed green beans and basil. Mix well and let sit off the heat for 5 minutes and serve.
