Almond Chicken

1/4 cup zesty Italian dressing

1 cup chicken broth

1 can green beans, drained

1 cup minute rice, uncooked

Place chicken and dressing in a Ziploc bag. Toss to coat. For greater flavor, let chicken marinade for up to 2 hours.

In a large skillet, add chicken with dressing and cook over medium-high heat. Cook on each side for about 4 minutes or until browned.

Add broth to pan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add beans and cook 5 minutes longer or until chicken is cooked completely.

Remove chicken from the skillet and keep warm. Add rice and almonds to the skillet. Remove from heat and cover. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve chicken over rice mixture.
