Chicken and green bean stew


With spring over the window, I really want lighter dishes with lots of vegetables. So this time I grabbed a lovely bag of green beans and enjoyed Turkish cuisine inspired vegetable stew. A very easy and fast dish with a lot of flavour!

What we need:

300 gr of boiled or steamed green beans
1 onion
1 carrot
2 chicken breasts
a handful of parsley
salt
pepper
1 teaspoon of garlic powder or 2-3 cloves of garlic
olive oil
1 tbsp of tomato paste
500ml of water or chicken stock
1 lemon juice

What we need:

1. Peel and chop the onion and carrot.
2. Preheat the pan with some olive oil, add the onion and sliced carrot. Stir it and fry for 2-3 minutes, then add chicken cut into chunks. Stir and fry for 5 minutes.
3. Add green beans, tomato paste, water, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir it and simmer for 5 more minutes until meat and vegetables are completely cooked.
4. Add chopped parsley and turn the heat off. Squeeze some lemon and serve. Enjoy! You can also add a table spoon of yogurt.

  1. Gaminau šį patiekalą, tik dėjau jautienos frikadeles, nes vištienos neturėjau. Labai skanu, paprasta ir greita! Ačiū už receptą. :)
