A hearty and wholesome one-pan meal that requires minimal time in the kitchen and more time to enjoy this delicious dinner!

  • Extra virgin olive oil, 2 tsp(s)
  • Chicken breast, raw, 6 oz(s)
  • Black pepper, 1 tsp(s), ground
  • Yellow onion, 1 small, finely chopped
  • Garlic, minced, 1 tsp(s)
  • Tomato paste no salt added, 1⅓ tbsp
  • Cherry tomatoes, 9 oz, halved
  • Zucchini, 2 medium, diced
  • Low sodium chicken stock, ¾ cup(s)
  • Balsamic vinegar, 2 tsp(s)
  • Basil, fresh, ½ cup(s), whole leaves
  • Green beans, trimmed, 2 cup(s), 1/2" pieces

Method

Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Season the chicken with pepper and add to the pan. Cook each side for 1 minute, until golden. Remove to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium, add the remaining oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook while stirring for 2 to 3 minutes, until soft. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 30 seconds, continuing to stir. Add the tomatoes and zucchini, stir to coat. Add the stock, bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Return the chicken and any juices to the pan, covering the chicken with the sauce. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. 

Meanwhile, place the beans onto a microwave-safe dinner plate. Cover with wet paper towel, microwave for 1 to 2 minutes on High until bright green.

Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the heat, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and scatter over the basil.

Divide the chicken and sauce between serving plates and serve with the green beans.
