A Variation

Here is a variation on the potato, string bean, chicken that I posted earlier. 

Hand full of String Beans
1 Chicken Breast cut into bite size chunks
2 cups of New Potatoes quartered
1/2 cup Grape Tomatoes
1/4 Onion chopped
2 cloves of Garlic minced
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Chicken Stock
Olive oil

Mashed Potatoes:  Boil a pot of water large enough for the potatoes.  Salt the water and add the potatoes.  Let them cook until they are fully cooked and soft.  Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.  Add 1 TBSP of butter, 1 TBSP of milk and 1 TBSP of chicken stock and mash your potatoes.  Add more milk, chicken stock, and butter until you get the consistency you want and add salt and pepper to taste.
Mash potato topping:  In a small pot heat a little olive oil over medium heat and toss in the onion. Stir and cook for 1 minute and add the garlic and tomatoes and let simmer on low heat.  After a few minutes add 1 TBSP of butter stir and cover pot.
Chicken:  Coat the chicken with about 1 TBSP olive oil and salt and pepper.  Heat a pan on high.  Toss in the chicken and brown on all sides.
String Beans:  Boil a pot of water large enough for your string beans to have room to cook.  Salt the water and throw the beans in there for 3 minutes.  After the 3 minutes strain them and place in a bowl with a lump of butter and salt and pepper to taste.
When everything is finished plate and enjoy!
