Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 pounds green beans, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
  • 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
Directions
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add the green beans and salt and pepper to taste. Saute, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and set aside.

  • Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add the cream, thyme, lemon juice and zest, and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and let reduce by half, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Pour the dressing over the green beans to serve.
