  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely crush pecans in shipping bag.

    Peel and halve sweet potato. Slice halves into half-moons as thinly as possible.

    Trim green beans, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Make the Gratin

    Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium heat. Add cream cheese, 1/3 cup water, and garlic pepper to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir until combined, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.

    Add sweet potatoes to prepared casserole dish and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Evenly layer potatoes in dish. Top with cream cheese sauce and panko. Wipe pan clean and reserve. You may have leftover potatoes; remaining are yours to use as you please!

    Bake in hot oven until potatoes are tender and topping has browned, 25-30 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 5 minutes.

    While gratin bakes, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry and place on a clean cutting board. Hold knife blade parallel to the board and carefully make a lengthwise cut through the center of the meat, using your free hand to steady meat. Stop short of opposite edge so chicken remains in one piece. Open chicken as you would a book.

    Divide cheese slices evenly between chicken, placing in center. Fold chicken in half over cheese.

  4. 4

    Cook the Chicken

    Return pan used to cook cream cheese sauce to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 3-4 minutes on one side.

    Remove from burner. Flip chicken and top with crushed pecans.

    Transfer to hot oven and roast in until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven.

    While chicken cooks, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Cook Green Beans and Finish Dish

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add green beans to hot pan and stir occasionally, 1 minute.

    Add 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook undisturbed until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water, cover, and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.

    Uncover and add butter and a pinch of salt. Stir until combined. Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card. Bon appétit!
