  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 pound yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as yukon gold—peeled, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 32 ounce container (4 cups) chicken broth
  • 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and haled crosswise
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees . Arrange the tomatoes cut side up on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil on top; season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer the tomatoes and any juices to a bowl.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the pan and cook, turning once, until cooked through, about 10 minutes; transfer to a work surface. Let cool, then shred the meat.

In the same saucepan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, season with salt and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, potatoes and chicken broth and bring to a simmer; cook for 5 minutes. Add the green beans and tomatoes with their juices, partially cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken and parsley; season with salt and pepper.
