Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans - simple enough for every day; elegant enough for company! There are potatoes, too, making it a complete meal. Try it with artichokes in the spring!

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.
