Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer on top of the prepared base. Tightly cover the tray with foil and bake 25 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove and discard the foil. Add the green beans in an even layer; drizzle with olive oil. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, 9 to 11 minutes, or until the rice and green beans are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven.
