- 1/2 pound wax beans, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 1 can (15.5 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
- 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 4 chicken cutlets (about 3/4 pound total)
