Mmmmmm....This is one of my favorite week night recipes for chicken using my Healthy On You® Paleo Poultry Rub. Be sure to use air chilled organic chicken if you can find it-it makes all the difference in this juicy low-calorie, high protein recipe.
2 large organic chicken breasts each sliced length-wise in half for a total of 4 pieces of size similar breast meat
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil + 1 tsp (separated)
2 tbsp Healthy On You® Paleo Poultry Rub
1 lb. fresh green beans cleaned and stems removed
Salt & pepper to taste
Slice the lemon in rounds of similar thickness and set aside.
Prepare the chicken: Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Wash and pat dry each piece of breast, then rub with a little olive oil and generously coat each piece with the 2 tbsp. Healthy On You® Paleo Poultry Rub and sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Add the chicken to the hot pan and sear each breast for 5 minutes on each side depending on thickness, then add the lemon juice and cook for 1 minute. Remove from pan and set aside. Add 1 tbsp. olive oil to the same pan and stir in the beans and 1 tbsp. water and cook stirring often for 4 minutes.
Separately, while the beans cook, heat a small skillet and add a tsp. of olive oil and add the lemon slices, working in batched if you need to. Sear the lemon slices for 1 minute on each side until slightly charred. When finished,assemble this beautiful dish by adding the chicken breasts to the beans and top with the lemon slices. Add the juices that settled from the cooked chicken and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Whether you are enjoying a Paleo diet or not, this subtle, yet classic poultry spice is perfect for all your poultry creations and its great in stuffing recipes too. 100% organic and salt-free ingredients makes this blend easy to say yes to.
