Buttery Garlic Green Beans

I needed some greens for my lemon garlic chicken and found this to be the perfect complementary side dish. I found the recipe on allrecipes with excellent reviews and gave it a go.


  • 1 pound fresh green beans (trimmed and snapped in half)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 pinches lemon pepper


STEP 1: Place green beans into a large skillet and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until beans start to soften, about 5 minutes. – Forgot to snap them in half – it’ll be a lot easier to eat if you cut or snap them in half 😉

STEP 2: Drain water. Add butter to green beans; cook and stir until butter is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

This is a tasty side without overpowering the entree. A great quick option for any dish.
