So Simple!

Chinese five spice chicken and beansI was a little worried about the green beans in our harvest box this week, so I wanted to use them right away. I didn’t have time to go to the store, and was planning to use some dried herbs and bake them with chicken. I can’t believe I was out of rosemary! Standing in front of my spice cabinet, I noticed some Chinese Five Spice powder, and decided to give it a shot. This simple main dish was very tasty, and only took 40 minutes start to finish. (Eight minutes of that was trimming the beans, and 30 minutes of baking time.)
