Chicken and Green string beans
Red, green, yellow, this Food is really colorful dish, simple easy and very tasty , you can find sour and hot tastes , both in one! I love string beans so I sometimes add them to the meat or chicken! In addition to their lovely tastes, green beans have a lot of benefits, they are an excellent source of protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates fiber and complex carbohydrates, Folic acid and molybdenum, the major health benefit of green beans is their ability to lower the cholesterol and consequently blood pressure due to their rich source of fiber, moreover they prevents rapidly rising sugar in blood after a meal!

500 gr chicken fillet
750 gr string green beans

Peel and thinly slice onions, then fry in oil until slightly golden.
Wash and cut chicken fillets into small pieces and fry in onions until color changes, dice tomatoes and add them into the pan with green chilies, let the tomatoes release their water , add verijuice ( if you want to add lime juice you better add it at the final stage of cooking before adding the beans ) and a glass of water, cover the pan and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender ,
While chicken is cooking, wash green beans, cut the ends and chop into 2-3 cm pieces, you can steam cook green beans or boil them , I sometimes prefer to add one tsp of turmeric to the beans ,
