Green Beans and Chicken

Arabic food mixes meat and chicken with many different vegetables. This is another dish that introduces chicken and green beans together. When i introduced this to my in-laws for the first time, it was different to them but they were willing to try and yes they fell in love with it since it is both healthy and tasty. They keep sending me notes that they cook it every now and then :).

Ingredients :

One Pound of Green Beans

2 Chicken Breasts

One Large Onion


Salt & Pepper

How to Prepare:

Cut the green beans into small pieces (inch and a half long).
Cut the chicken breast into small one inch cubes.
Using a large pot, melt one tablespoon of butter.
Add half-diced onion and saute.
Add the chicken cubes to the onion and stir.

Add a dash of salt & pepper to the chicken and cover the pot so the chickens gets tender (stir every few minutes to prevent from sticking).

Add the green beans to the pot and stir for a few minutes.
Add water to the pot to cover the beans and chicken only, then add a little bit of salt and pepper.
Cut the other half of the onion into four pieces and add them to the green beans.

When the water starts to boil, lower the flame and cover the pot.
Cook for about 60-90 minutes checking every now and then, adding water when it dries so not to burn it.
