Chicken-Green Bean Pasta

I had guests for Shabbos lunch, so I overcooked. I have a container of cholent that will probably go to waste because we don’t like it after Shabbat (and barely like it DURING.) I also have a container of thawed green beans that never got heated up, and a huge number of chicken breast fillets. I could have served a couple of pieces of chicken and the green beans with a side of noodles and the husband person would have been happy. He’s easy.

But why? I put up a pot of salted water for the pasta (whole wheat spirals) and in the meantime, chopped a couple of onions, which I saute’d in canola oil until sweet. Then I added several handfuls of green beans and three diced cooked chicken breasts. Then I added a fair amount of lemon juice, and some oregano, and a little extra virgin olive oil. When the pasta was cooked, I added some ladels of the cooking liquid (starch and salt) to the other pot and drained them. Served the chicken over the pasta – it was nice and lemony, with a Mediterranean edge.

Still have a fair amount of chicken left, though.

    Did you by chance figure out the points or points plus value for this? It sounds really yummy!

    At a guess, between 8 and 10 points.

    at least cooked chicken breasts freeze well, if you get tired of them before you run out!

      Thank you. I’m concentrating on another media based blog but I’m still cooking, so I figured I should keep writing the food stuff, too.
