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!

I N G R E D I E N T S: 4 serving

500 gr  chicken fillet
750 gr  string green beans
500 gr  tomatoes
3 medium onions
cooking oil
salt and pepper
2 green chilies
 1/4 cup verijuice/ if you don't have verijuice  you can add one table spoon of fresh lime juice,

D I R E C T I O N:
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 ,
Add beans, salt, pepper

drain the cooked beans and add them to the cooked chicken, cook for another 3 or 4 minutes,
The khoresht is ready!
Nooshe jaan!
