Spicy Garlic Green Beans with Chicken

This is a simple to make meal that explodes with flavor.  And it's healthy, too, if you can imagine that!  So, it's a win/win all around.

Spicy Garlic Green Beans with Chicken

1 Pound Green Beans, Trimmed
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Pound Chicken Breast
Coarse Salt and Ground Pepper 
2 or 3 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
1 Teaspoon (or more) Hot Pepper Flakes

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Removed from skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat.  Stir in garlic and hot pepper flakes.  Cook until garlic softens, don't let it brown.  Add the green beans and season with salt and pepper, toss to coat.  Cover and allow to cook for 10 minutes.  Stir and add chicken.  Allow to cook for another 5 minutes and serve.
