Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 340 g skinless and boneless chicken thighs (12 oz)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (30 ml)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1 cup frozen green beans (120 g/ 4.2 oz)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (30 ml)

  2. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and toss with the salt and pepper.

  5. Cook for a further 2 to 5 minutes over medium heat and then add the cream cheese. It’s much easier to add the cream cheese in cubes than in one big lock. Continue cooking, stirring regularly, until the cheese has melted and is coating the rest of the dish in a delicious blanket, approx. 10 minutes.
  6. Store in a covered dish in the fridge for up to 3 days or portion out and freeze.
