For The Chicken Stir Fry:

  • 1 ½ pounds chicken breast Cut into 1 inch pieces
  • cup corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 10 ounces green beans trimmed and cut in half
  • 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds optional, for garnish


  • Whisk together all ingredients for the sauce, set aside.
  • Toss the chicken with the cornstarch, salt and pepper, until chicken is fully coated.  Set aside.
  • Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat.  Add one tablespoon of oil.  Cook the green beans, stirring often, until starting to blister, 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and reserve on a plate.
  • Add the second tablespoon of oil to the pan.  Add the chicken, but do not overcrowd the pan.  Cook in two batches if necessary.  Cook chicken 3-4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  • Add the green beans back to the pan with the chicken.  Pour in the sauce.  Stir, scraping up and browned bits on the bottom of the pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, until chicken and green beans are fully coated and sauce has thickened. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve over rice if desired.
