Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 4-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 oz green beans, trimmed and rinsed
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 8 oz frozen corn
  • pinch sea salt
  • Sweet paprika, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  • Remove any visible fat from chicken, cut breasts into 1-inch cubes and set aside
  • Fill 2 medium pots halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add beans to 1 pot and turn heat down to medium. Simmer beans for 5 minutes; drain and set aside. Add potatoes to second pot reduce heat to medium and simmer for 8 minutes; drain and set aside.
  • In a small nonstick pan, saute garlic in 1 tbsp oil over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Add ginger and cook for 1 more minute, then remove from heat immediately. In a small bowl, mash garlic-ginger mixture with a fork until it’s a smooth paste. With same fork, stir paste into potatoes. Chop cooled beans into 1-in long pieces.
  • Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When oil is just beginning to sizzle, add chicken and saute for 3minutes. Add green beans and corn and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. (the chicken will finish cooking by method of poaching, thanks to the liquid from the vegetables.
  • Using a slotted spoon, lift vegetable-chicken mixture from pan, letting liquid drain out, and place 1 cup mixture onto each of 4 plates. Season with salt, paprika, and pepper. Serve alongside 1/2 cup potatoes
