A note about serious food allergies

Forget the ancient reputation as the harbinger of temptation and evil. Forgo the legal bribery of handing your teacher a polished one. And brush aside thoughts of omnipresent technology companies: This apple is only one thing and that's delicious. It's delicious with green beans and red onion and those are delicious when paired with this chicken with garlic-thyme sauce, both herbaceous and creamy. When they ask "how about them apples?" you'll only be thinking of this sublime meal. Tip: Here's a super-easy way to remove thyme leaves from stem. Just pinch the top and run your fingers down the stem. Presto! The leaves should just fall off.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes, then roasting in hot oven until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes, then roasting in hot oven until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans. Cut into 1" pieces.

    Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into wedges and halve wedges into chunks.

    Stem and mince thyme.

    Peel and halve onion. Slice one half into thin strips (remaining half is yours to use as you please!).

    Mince garlic.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Start the Green Beans and Apple

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add green beans, apple, and onion to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer green beans and apple to one half of prepared baking sheet and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer on their half.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Return pan used to cook vegetables to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 4-5 minutes on one side.

  4. 4

    Finish the Chicken, Green Beans, and Apple

    Place baking sheet in hot oven and roast until green beans and apple are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    When chicken and green beans have 5 minutes left, make sauce.
