Dream Dinners: Savannah Grilled Chicken with Bacon Ranch Green Beans

This was another busy week for me and I am so lucky to have Dream Dinners and Mike in my life to keep me fed.  Honestly, left to my own devices, I probably would have ice cream for dinner most nights in the summer.  While I was at an event on Tuesday, Mike made some delicious Savannah Grilled Chicken with Bacon Ranch Green Beans and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  We’ve enjoyed the green beans and mashed potatoes before, but this was the first time we had this chicken dish.  Mike did it on the stovetop because we don’t have a grill and its hot outside.  We do have a grill pan, but we sometimes have issues with stuff sticking pretty bad, so we use a skillet when possible.  Mike heated up olive oil in a skillet and browned the chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side.  He added the sauce and brought it to a boil, reducing it and allowing it to simmer for 10-15 minutes.  He warned me that the chicken was a bit spicy and I didn’t believe him until I ate some.  While it wasn’t super spicy, most of our Dream Dinners meals are not spicy at all, so this was a little bit different.  I am not quite sure why it was spicy-its been a while since I prepared the meals in the store, so I couldn’t remember what ingredients I used.  I do get a little heavy handed with some spices, so I will have to keep that in mind in the future.  This was another simple meal with a lot of great flavor and worked well for our busy life!
