Dinner: Grilled Chicken, Baby Bok Choy, Garlic Heirloom Cherry Tomato Scarlett Runner Beans and Nectarine Slices

The other night we made a fun dinner. It was our first time making Scarlett Runner beans, which we sauteed with some mini heirloom tomatoes, onions and a variety of spices. The beans were put on a bed of baby bok choy, then the chicken was put on the bed of beans, creating three layers of yumminess! Nectarine slices on the side added a sweet, summery flair.

In case you want to try your own Scarlett Runner beans, you must know that they take FOREVER to cook. I thought it would be 45 minutes to an hour - I think it was 2-3 hours before those beans were tender enough to drain and rinse!
