    I made this with chicken breasts instead of pork tenderloin and it was amazing. Full of flavor. The green beans and kale were great too.

    I was looking for a little different recipe for green beans and tried this one. The green beans were great. I didn’t have any Kale, so I left it out, but this was a simple recipe to spice up regular green beans.
