Chicken is a staple for most of us, but it can get difficult to come up with new ways to serve it to your family. If you're stuck in a chicken rut, try this healthy recipe for a delicious change of pace.

Using chicken thighs gives this dish a meatier, richer taste without loading on the calories and fat. To make life easier, use frozen green beans so all the cleaning and chopping is done for you...all you have to do is open the box!


11/2 Tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 pound + 4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken thighs
