  5. In a medium sauté pan over medium high heat, add the butter.  Once the butter has melted, add the green beans and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or just until fork tender. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and keep warm for plating.
  6. Place the chicken breast in the center of two plates.  Spoon the tomato- jalapeño mixture on top of each piece of chicken.  Serve the green beans on the side.  Enjoy!
