Chicken and Green Beans with Bacon

I am so in love with one pan meals!

Chicken and Green Beans with Bacon


  • 1/2 - 1 Onion
  • 2 - 6 cloves Garlic
  • Green Beans
  • 2 - 4 strips bacon
  • Chicken breasts for your family
  • Broth (Optional)


  1. Cook the bacon.
  2. Set aside bacon.
  3. Dump most of the grease out
  4. Saute onion and garlic in the rest and brown the outside of the chicken breast.
  5. Add water or broth to cover and poach chicken breast. Allow the broth to reduce. Flip the chicken breast as needed
  6. Snap beans
  7. Add beans about 15 minutes after chicken comes to a boil.
  8. Boil for about 4 or 5 minutes until the beans change to the other shade of green. They will be cooked but crisp still. Once you see the color shift pull them off and drain!
  9. Crumble the bacon on top.
  10. Serve!
