Lemon Garlic Chicken & Green Beans
with Almond Rice
Chicken may be our “any night, any cuisine,” quick-cooking go-to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t style it up to perfection. Tonight, we’re pairing peppery, herbaceous pan-seared chicken with garlicky, buttery green beans, and brightening everything with a squeeze of lemon. Nestle the chicken and green beans atop fluffy, zesty rice, and sprinkle with sliced almonds for a nutty, crunchy finish. Did we mention you’ll be feasting in just 20 minutes?

• In a small pot, combine rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• Meanwhile, wash and dry produce. • Trim green beans if necessary. Peel and mince garlic. Zest and quarter lemon. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add green beans and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and softened, 4-6 minutes.
• Pat chicken* dry with paper towels and season all over with half the Tuscan Heat Spice (all for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. • Add another drizzle of oil to pan with green beans. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add minced garlic, garlic herb butter, and 1 TBSP plain butter (2 TBSP for 4); toss to coat. Turn off heat. • Add a squeeze of lemon juice (big squeeze for 4).
• Fluff rice with a fork. Stir in lemon zest and half the almonds. Season with salt and pepper to taste. • Divide rice between bowls; top with chicken and green beans. Garnish with remaining almonds and serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
Chicken is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 165°.
