    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrots into ¼" diagonal slices. Trim ends off green beans. Cut roasted red pepper into ½" dice. Mince garlic. Stem and coarsely chop oregano. Stem and coarsely chop mint. Stem, seed, and mince Fresno chile. Keep some or all seeds if you prefer more spice. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. On a separate cutting board, use a fork to pierce chicken 10-12 times per side. This will tenderize the meat and allow marinade to penetrate.
