4 boneless skinless chicken thighs thinly sliced
1 teaspoon onion powder

How to make One Skillet Chicken with Green Beans
Step 1: In a microwave-safe dish with half a cup (125ml) water, arrange the green beans. Microwave the beans for about 8 to 10 minutes until almost done but still crisp.
Step 2: Heat the olive oil and melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken to the hot oil and sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper. Cook the chicken for approximately minutes per side until the slices of chicken are slightly browned. Now, add the garlic along with the onion powder, precooked beans, and mushrooms. Continue to cook for another to minutes, stirring often until cooked to your desired doneness.
Step 3: To the skillet, pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Simmer the sauce for a few minutes until slightly thickened.
Step 4: Lastly, stir in the Parmesan cheese until completely combined with the sauce. Adjust the salt and pepper according to taste.
Step 5: Remove from the heat when done and serve the chicken and green beans warm garnished with more cheese.
