Heat extra-virgin olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.
Pat chicken dry. Season with Italian seasoning, sea salt, and pepper on both sides.
Gently place chicken in pan. Let sear for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until all sides are nicely browned.
Add crushed garlic and onion to the pan and sauté for 2 minutes or until the onions turn translucent.
Lower heat to medium-low and add in tomatoes, basil, red pepper flakes if using, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until sauce has reduced and the chicken is fully cooked through.
While sauce is simmering, pre-heat the oven to 350 ℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss green beans in olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Bake green beans for 10-15 minutes or until fully cooked through. When done, set aside until chicken has finished cooking.
If adding spinach, add to the pan for the last 1-2 minutes of simmering until the spinach has started to wilt.
Remove from heat. Serve hot with roasted green beans!
Green Beans: Pre-heat oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss green beans in garlic powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place on the parchment lined baking sheet. Once oven is pre-heated, bake for 10-15 minutes, or until fully cooked.
