This simple chicken, potato, and green bean recipe is just the kind of easy dinner that’s perfect for weeknights. But, the key to making this straightforward “Chicken and Vegetables” recipe not your average dinner is the briny olive-shallot dressing that you’ll spoon overtop. It’s worth seeking out Castelvetrano olives, a particularly salty variety of green olive that has been known to win over olive haters. If you can’t find them, Cerignola olives are a good stand in. Serve with a light, peppery red wine or a crisp, almost effervescent white.
