      A warm pasta dish with green beans and peppers makes a quick side dish for grilled chicken breasts.

Grilled Tarragon Chicken Breasts

Total time: 30 minutes
     Tarragon is a great herb for chicken, and a classic pairing in French cuisine.  When basting with a marinade, stop about 5 minutes before taking the meat off the heat, and turn the meat a final time to make certain the marinade is cooked.

Grilled Tarragon Chicken Breasts Ingredients:


Warm Green Bean, Pepper and Goat Cheese Pasta 

Total time: 25 minutes
      Cooking the beans with the pasta saves a pan.  The pepper and onion are cooked briefly but could be left raw.  (I, personally, am not a fan of raw onions.)
