Makes 4 servings

Ingredients as listed in recipe*
1-1/2 lbs green beans, trimmed

Olive oil, salt and pepper

*Note that we reduced the olive oil used to 3 tbsp rather than 1/4 cup.


  1. Follow instructions in steps 1 and 2 of recipe to prepare anchovy-garlic oil and brown chicken thighs.
  2. While chicken cooks in oven, heat water in a vegetable steamer and steam green beans for 5 minutes.
  3. While the green beans are steaming, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. Sautee onion slices until golden brown and slightly crispy. Add steamed green beans and toss to blend flavorts.
  4. Follow step 3 of recipe to finish chicken. Serve with green beans as a side.

Note - If two people are working on this meal, it works well for one to do the prep work while the other cooks the chicken and green beans.
