This story begins just as the great Sophia Petrillo began so many of hers on "Golden Girls." Picture it: Sicily, 1922. A down-at-the-heels chicken farmer wants to win the affection of a fetching young neighbor with a home-cooked meal. But it turns out she's paleo! What's a shabby chicken farmer to cook for this protein-preferring person that's still delicious enough to impress? He serves forth a pan-roasted chicken with a fragrant herb blend next to mozzarella-crusted Roma tomatoes and roasted green beans dappled with fresh garlic. The drizzle of sweet-tangy balsamic glaze clinched it, and the two lived together happily for many years, until they separated because one wouldn't stop talking about CrossFit.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans. Halve Roma tomatoes lengthwise. Use an half teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out a ½" deep well in each tomato half. Mince garlic. Stem and mince parsley. Combine butter and half the parsley (reserve remaining for garnish) and a pinch of pepper in a small bowl. Rinse chicken, pat dry, and season both sides with half the Italian seasoning (reserve remaining for tomatoes), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Tomatoes

    Cook the Tomatoes

    Place tomato halves, cut side up, on one half of prepared baking sheet. Divide parsley-butter between each tomato well and top each with shredded mozzarella. Sprinkle mozzarella with remaining Italian seasoning, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Bake until cheese has mostly melted, 10 minutes. While tomatoes bake, sear chicken.

  • Step 3 - Sear the Chicken

    Sear the Chicken

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Chicken will finish cooking in later step. While chicken cooks, toss green beans.

  • Step 4 - Toss the Green Beans

    After tomatoes have roasted 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven. Place green beans on other half of baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Place baking sheet and pan with chicken in oven and bake until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees and cheese is brown and bubbly, 6-8 minutes. Rest chicken 5 minutes.
