GARLIC & LEMON CHICKEN WITH GREEN BEANS
Makes 4 servings
1 Leaner protein
1 ¾ vegetables
4 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 thinly sliced lemon – this may be used for flavoring but do not eat the lemon slices because that would add too many carbohydrates
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 lb pound trimmed green beans
4 – 9 ounce chicken breasts
Preheat oven to 400°F ( 180). Coat a large baking dish or cast-iron skillet with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Arrange the lemon slices in a single layer in the bottom of the dish or skillet.
In a large bowl, combine the remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper; add the chicken and green beans and toss to coat. Pour this mix into the pan and spread around evenly.
Roast for 50 minutes or until cooked through. Serve warm.
