Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 chicken thighs
  • ¾ cup green beans, trimmed
  • ¾ cup sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup onions, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup almonds, sliced
  • ½ tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp of ‘spice blend’

Spice Blend

  • 2 tsp basil
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground onion
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Instructions

Pan 1

  1. In a large nonstick pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium high.
  2. Season chicken with half the spice blend. Add salt/pepper to taste. Cook in pan, partially covered for 4-6 minutes per side until cooked through. Set aside.
  3. Add tomatoes to the pan, and season with remaining spice blend. Cook until they begin to burst (3-5 minutes) and remove all and set aside.

Pan 2

  1. Toast the almonds by adding them to a dry pan over medium heat, stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the (now empty) dry pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high, add garlic and onions. Cook, stirring frequently until the onions become translucent; 1-2 minutes. Add green beans, sugar snap peas, and half the balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook (stirring frequently), 4-5 minutes until cooked through, but still crisp.
  3. Add the toasted almonds, and toss to combine.
