Garlic Herb Chicken with White Beans Ingredient List
The ingredients are pretty simple in this recipe. You can customize the herb combination and use any fresh herbs that you like. I have used as little as one or two herbs (rosemary and thyme) or you can use a full blown mixture of parsley, mint, rosemary, cilantro, sage, tarragon, and lavender. You really can’t go wrong here, it just depends on what you are in the mood for. Here is what you will need:
- fresh herbs of choice with the thick stems removed. Thin, tender stems at the top of the plant are fine since they will be pulverized and contain a lot of flavor.
- extra virgin olive oil
- fresh garlic
- fresh squeezed lemon juice
- boneless chicken breasts or chicken tenders
- red onions
- white beans – canned or dried beans that have been cooked
- white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or pinot grigio
How to Make Garlic Herb Chicken with With White Beans
The most time consuming part about this recipe is the time it takes to marinate the chicken. The longer the chicken has to soak in this super flavorful mixture of garlic, lemon and herbs the better. You can mix up the marinade the night before and let that chicken soak overnight.
- Prepare the marinade by adding the herbs, garlic cloves, oil and lemon juice to a high speed blender or food processor and blend until the mixture is pureed.
- Place the chicken pieces into a glass or pyrex container and pour the marinade over the top. Cover the bowl and store the marinating chicken in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
- Pre-heat a cast iron skillet or your favorite skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil on top of the stove over medium to high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken pieces.
- Allow the chicken pieces to cook in the pan undisturbed for about 3 minutes, add the sliced onions to the ad cook them with the chicken
- Turn the chicken pieces over and add the beans.
- Add the wine and reduce the heat to low, cover and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
