Solo Green Beans and Chicken With Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

The sharp tang of the lemon juice matched with the sour olives and the sweet onions highlights tonight's version of refrigerator sweep. I really liked this combination, but remember cooking is a Creative Sport.

This was really delicious and easy to make. I, like Shellbelle, did not have any olives on hand so I did without, but I am looking forward to trying it again with the olives as well. I doubled the recipe for my husband and I and it was perfect! Thanks, Brother William!!
