Pesto: you’ve had it on pasta or maybe as a dip. Let us introduce you to yet another way to use this Italian favorite. Here, we’re spreading it onto chicken breasts, using it as a glue to hold down a layer of panko breadcrumbs before they’re roasted in the oven. That way, you get herby aromatics, meaty juices, and crispy golden goodness in every bite.

Place chicken on a second, lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush tops of chicken breasts with a thin layer of pesto (you may have some left over). Mound coated sides with crust mixture, pressing to adhere. Roast on middle rack until chicken is cooked through, 20-22 minutes.

Meanwhile, pierce green bean bag with a fork; place on a plate. Microwave until tender, 2-3 minutes. (TIP: No microwave? No problem! Steam beans in a small pot with a splash of water until just tender, 5-7 minutes.) Quarter lemon. Carefully transfer green beans to a large bowl along with almonds and 1 TBSP butter. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Toss until beans are coated and butter has melted. Season with salt and pepper.
