GARLIC & LEMON CHICKEN WITH GREEN BEANS

Makes 4 servings

Per serving

1 Leaner protein

1 fat

3 condiments

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

DIRECTIONS

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.
