Easy 👌


200 g chicken breasts
2 tbsp soy sauce
½ lemon
½ onion
2 cloves garlic
225 g green beans
150 g cherry tomatoes
250 g penne
30 g parsley
1 tbsp olive oil
Parmesan cheese (for serving)


  • 2 knives
  • 2 cutting boards
  • pot
  • grater
  • Step 1/6

    • 200 g chicken breasts
    • salt
    • pepper
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • ½ lemon
    • knife
    • cutting board

    Season the chicken with the salt, pepper, soy sauce and the juice of the lemon. For more color and texture, briefly sear the chicken breast in a skillet, then (or just before cooking) cut it into 3/4-inch (2 cm) pieces.

  • Step 2/6

    • salt

    Bring 2 cups (1/2 l) of water to a boil, then add salt.

  • Step 3/6

    • ½ onion
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 225 g green beans
    • 150 g cherry tomatoes
    • knife
    • cutting board
    • pot

    While you wait for the water to boil, peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Wash the green beans and cherry tomatoes. Cut the beans into 2 or 3 segments.

  • Step 4/6

    • 250 g penne
    • 30 g parsley
    • 1 tbsp olive oil

    When the water comes to a boil, add the penne, chicken pieces, onion, and garlic to the pot. Stir often to ensure the ingredients don’t stick to the bottom. Halfway through the pasta cooking time (check the package instructions), add the beans and tomatoes. If needed, add a bit more water. One minute before the pasta is cooked, stir in the chopped parsley and butter or oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Step 5/6

    • Parmesan cheese (for serving)
    • grater

    The penne should be al dente and the sauce creamy. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese. If the pasta is cooked but the sauce is still too thin, add the Parmesan cheese directly to the pot and mix well. This should help thicken the sauce.
