  • 2 tablespoons - olive oil, divided
  • 4 - chicken thighs OR 8 chicken tenderloins
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons - kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoons - black pepper, divided
  • 1 - sweet yellow onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 cups - fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 8 ounces - fresh green beans (about 3 handfuls), trimmed
  • 1 tablespoons - finely chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - chopped fresh oregano, plus more for garnish
  • 1/3 cups - dry white wine
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat.

    Sprinkle chicken on all sides with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Place chicken in skillet; cook, undisturbed, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Flip, and continue to cook until browned on other side, about 3 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. (Chicken will not be cooked through.)

    Place onion slices in skillet in a single layer over medium-high heat and cook, undisturbed, until slightly charred, about 3 minutes. Turn slices over and cook until charred on other side, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to plate with chicken.

    Add tomatoes and remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet, and cook until blistered, about 4 minutes. Add green beans, garlic, and oregano and cook for about 1 minute.
    Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Stir in white wine. Place charred onions on top of tomato mixture; settle chicken pieces into tomato mixture.

    Place skillet in preheated oven and bake until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of chicken reaches 170°F, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and garnish with oregano.
