Chicken with Beans
and Tomatoes


Tasty Dish

I created this Chicken with Beans and Tomatoes dish yesterday in under a half hour. It was long day so I needed to put something together quick. It’s a healthy recipe pack full of protein and nutrients.

I always stress that fresh ingredients are the best but in this case I used canned everything. When you cook as much as I do sometimes you have to give in to convenience.

This Chicken with Beans and Tomatoes were seasoned with a few dried herbs and left to simmer in a tomato broth mixture until the chicken was tender and juicy.


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbls of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 15oz can of string beans
  • 1 15oz can of lima beans
  • 1 15oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp of dried basil


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper
  • In a large frying pan, sauté the chicken breasts in the oil until they are browned on both sides. About 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the onions and garlic to the pan and sauté until translucent.
  • Stir in the string beans, lima bean, tomatoes and broth.
  • Season the mixture with the thyme, oregano and basil.
  • Return the chicken to the pan.
  • Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened.
  • Plate the bean mixture and serve with the chicken on top.

    Serve with steamed broccoli or cauliflower
