This week I made a delectable dish that I named Chicken Fra Diavolo. Part of my love for cooking is creating new dishes and thinking of ways to use what I have to make a tasty dish. I believe a good cook can and should be able to improvise if needed. I had a package of chicken cutlets as well as some green beans that I needed to use. I love green beans marinara and figured I would combine the 2. I took a little bit of this and a little bit of that and this dish was born! It was really tasty and would definitely be a hit in a restaurant. It’s also healthy and carb-free. You get your meat and veggies all in one dish.
- Chicken Cutlets (thin-sliced)
- Gaeta Olives (small container)
- Green Beans
- 14.5 ounce can of Diced Tomatoes
- 14.5 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
- Red Pepper Flakes (a few shakes depending on how spicy you like it)
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
In a small saucepan start your sauce. Sauté garlic and oil and add a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce and let cook on a low flame. Stir in your Red Pepper Flakes. Salt and Pepper as well.
Meanwhile, boil some salted water and when boiling add the green beans and blanche for a few minutes. Then drain and set aside.
Heat about a tablespoon of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet. When heated add the rinsed chicken cutlets and cook through on both sides, about 7 minutes. When browned add your small container of Gaeta olives. Then add your cooked sauce and green beans and mix all together. Cook on low for about 10-15 minutes and serve! Enjoy!
