Do we need to say more than "almond goat cheese butter?" Is there more that could be said, other than velvety tangy richness coats this chicken like they were meant to be together? (They were.) A fine romance, this is, and even finer is the less than 15 minutes it gets made in.

Cook the Chicken
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add chicken breasts to hot pan, and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.
Remove from burner. Remove chicken to a plate. Top chicken with smoky goat cheese butter (prepared in a later step).
While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.

Add green beans, shallot, and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes.
