Ingredients

2 Tbsp

butter (divided)

¼ cup

fresh bread crumbs (white or whole wheat)

1 Tbsp

grated Parmesan cheese

unknown

pinch of salt

1 Tbsp

minced fresh tarragon

8 oz

fresh green beans, topped and tailed

⅓ cup

chicken stock

unknown

squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Directions

Place half of the butter (1 tablespoon) in a small skillet and melt over low heat. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring frequently, until the crumbs are golden, about 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. When the crumbs are cool, stir in the parmesan and pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, place the remaining tablespoon of butter and the tarragon in a medium-size skillet and melt over medium-high heat. Add the green beans and chicken stock, and cover the skillet. Cook until the beans are crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

Remove the cover and reduce any remaining liquid in the pan. Add a squeeze of lemon juice (no more than 1 teaspoon), and transfer the beans to a serving dish. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs and serve hot.
