30 Minute Almond Chicken

Prep: 5 min
Total: 30 min

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/4 c Zesty Italian dressing
1 c chicken broth
2 c green beans, trimmed & halved
1 c minute rice, uncooked
1/4 c sliced almonds

Toss chicken w/ dressing in resealable plastic bag.  Cook on medium-high heat for 4 min on each side or until brown.

Stir in broth; bring to boil.  Cover.  Simmer 10 min.  Add beans; cook 5 min or until chicken is cooked through.  Remove chicken from skillet.  Add rice and almonds.  Remove from heat; cover.  Let stand 5 min.  Serve chicken over rice mixture.

Makes 4 servings.

*This was pretty easy--I loved the green beans and almonds.  I actually used leftover cooked rice and it turned out just fine.  Next time, I think I'll try it with chicken breasts to get the better-for-you taste.
