Chicken and Green Beans

Chicken and Beans pinit

Introducing a flavorful and inspired dish that combines the freshness of green beans, the richness of chicken, and the vibrant flavors of tomatoes and dill: Chicken and Green Beans. While this recipe may not be traditional in Persian cuisine, it draws inspiration from the wonderful flavors and combinations found in Persian dishes.

In Persian cuisine, you’ll find dishes such as “Beans and Tomato” salad, as well as sauces and mixed rice featuring green beans. Taking inspiration from these culinary traditions, I’ve discovered that the combination of green beans, onion, tomatoes, and dill creates a harmonious and delicious blend of flavors.

Green beans and tomatoes complement each other exceptionally well. The acidity of the tomatoes enhances the taste of the green beans and creates a delightful balance. This combination is not only flavorful but also offers a range of textures, from the crispness of the green beans to the juicy tomatoes.

Chicken and Green Beans can be served in various ways. Enjoy it warm or cold as a refreshing salad or appetizer. Alternatively, pair it with steamed rice for a satisfying main course. If you prefer a vegetarian option, simply omit the chicken, as the beans, onions, tomatoes, and dill combination is incredibly delicious on its own.

In addition to this recipe, I’ll also provide instructions for a green bean and tomato salad, allowing you to explore different ways of enjoying this delightful combination of ingredients.

Get ready to savor the flavors of Chicken and Green Beans, a dish that brings together the best of both worlds: the freshness of green beans and the succulence of chicken, combined with the aromatic blend of tomatoes and dill. Whether you’re a fan of Persian cuisine or simply looking to try something new, this recipe is sure to impress with its vibrant flavors and versatility.

This recipe is not typical of Persian cuisine but is inspired by it. There is a "Beans and Tomato" salad and there are sauces and mixed rice made with green beans. I have found that the combination of green beans, onion, tomatoes, and dill work really great. Green Beans and Tomato are a great combination, the acidity of the tomato brings out the taste in many different combinations of foods.

You can serve this recipe by itself warm or cold as a salad or appetizer. Otherwise, you can serve it with steamed rice. For a vegetarian style simply omit the chicken as the beans, onions, and tomato combination is delicious by itself. I will also include a green bean and tomato salad later.



  1. Chop the red onion, heat the olive oil and sauté onions until they are soft and transparent. Halfway through also add the chopped garlic.
  2. Add the sliced green beans, I usually get sliced and ready beans but you can also use fresh beans and slice them. And if you don't feel like slicing them just clean and wash as this recipe also works well with whole beans. Let the onions and beans cook and keep stirring. Add the pepper to taste and add the dill to the mixture and stir.
