How to cook
Gather all ingredients.
Portion all ingredients.
Season the chicken with half of the salt and pepper, and all of the cumin, thyme, and paprika.
Mix the seasonings into the chicken thighs until well coated.
Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs and brown for 3-5 minutes on each side or until browned.
Cut the shallots in half, and remove the root, stem, and papery skin.
Chop the shallot into thin strips along the grain, and then chop perpendicularly to create a fine dice.
Take the browned chicken out of the pan and set aside.
Add the green beans and shallot to the same pan, season with the remaining salt and pepper. Blister the beans a little bit for about 3 minutes.
After a few minutes of cooking the beans, add the chicken back to the pan.
Add half of the chicken stock, and simmer for a few minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Move the beans to the side a bit so that you can stir the sauce on one side of the pan.
Add the rest of the chicken stock, lemon juice and tahini to the spot in the pan you cleared out. Stir until the tahini loosens up and combines with the other ingredients.
Stir the sauce in to coat the chicken.
