One pan chicken meals are my go-to for busy nights and it has been busy lately. The holidays are always crazy but we decided to take the kids on their first cruise two weeks before Christmas and even though I wouldn’t trade hearing that toddler laughter in our rented golf cart all around Catalina island for anything in the world, I feel like I’ve been playing catch up ever since we got back. One pan meals have been saving my sanity lately.

All that being said, this dish is one of my very favorite 30 minute meals. I just love the balsamic sauce on this dish. It only has 6 simple ingredients but it’s the perfect blend of savory, tangy, and creamylicious goodness that get’s kind of caramelized in the pan and makes your chicken and veggies extra yummy. Even my kids were licking the spoon clean when I made this last week. And what I like most about this creamy balsamic chicken and green beans situation is that in just 30 minutes you’ve got a main and a side dish all ready in one pan. Can’t beat that!

hey girl- this looks so yummy! Merry Christmas!

What a great idea for basalmic! Love it! xo Loren // http://www.thinkelysian.com

love the balsamic-chicken pairing, not to mention the fast prep and cooking time for this recipe and convenience of one pot cooking! thank you for this!

This looks really good! I don’t know much about cooking, but I’m learning! Are the green beans supposed to be fresh or frozen??

    Hi Mallory! This is a great recipe to start with, very simple and totally delicious! Definitely use fresh green beans in this recipe – I tried it out with frozen and it was NOT good ha. The fresh ones have awesome flavor and don’t get soggy! 🙂

This was divine and simple! I added 3 large shallots sliced lengthwise at the same time as the beans and sauce. I feel like it added a lovely extra dimension. Thank you!

This recipe looks awesome! Making it tonight for my Boyfriend’s birthday dinner 🙂 Is it ok if use plain mustard instead of djion?

    It’ll definitely have a bit of a different flavor, but I think it could still be delicious!

This was really good, i doubled the sauce for 6 chicken breasts and 1 pound of green beans and the original amount clearly would have been plenty of sauce. A hit with me and the husband but toddler found the sauce a bit too intense. Very easy and delicious, would definitely make again, needs nice bread to soak up yummy sauce off the plate!

I’m not a good cook so I’m excited to make this for my husband. I’m currently cooking it for the 15 minutes but the recipe doesn’t indicate whether to cook covered or uncovered? Help!

    Hi Michelle- I specify in my recipe if it is to be covered or not. So, this one is uncovered! I’m sure you are a better cook than you think! 😉

I definitely needed to cook my beans longer than 15 minutes, Next time I will pre-boil the beans a bit first. I’m going on 30 minutes (took the chicken out, it’s cooked) and still the beans are hard. Makes no sense! I think the store sold me fake beans!.

    Fake beans, haha! That literally made me laugh out loud! Hopefully it all worked out and was delicious! 😉

Could sour cream bE used in place of Greek yogurt in a pinch?

    Yes- in a pinch it could! But I do highly recommend using plain greek yogurt if you can!
