Sweet honey and toasty sesame team up for a flavor combo everyone at the table is sure to love. Serve with precooked brown rice for a quick and easy side to soak up sauce from the chicken.
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 4 ounces beans)
1. Combine chicken stock, honey, 1 tablespoon oil, and mustard in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring with a whisk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 10 minutes or until syrupy, stirring occasionally.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Pour honey mixture over chicken, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
3. Prepare green beans according to package directions. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, butter, and beans in a bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds.
