A quick and easy chicken stir-fry dish with green beans that's ready in minutes. Serve over rice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 0.25 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 medium white onion, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine chicken, mirin, cornstarch, salt, and white pepper in a bowl. Stir to combine and set aside while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. 2 Whisk together oyster sauce, mirin, rice wine vinegar, honey, soy sauce, cornstarch, and sesame oil in a bowl until evenly combined. Set sauce aside.
  3. 3 Cut green beans in half and set aside. Slice onion in half, then cut into 1/4-inch wedges.
  4. 4 Heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Add green beans and continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes. Pour in water and continue cooking until water is evaporated and beans are crisp-tender, about 2 more minutes. Remove green bean mixture to a large bowl.
  5. 5 Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same wok over high heat. Cook chicken for 1 minute in a single layer without disturbing. You may need to cook the chicken in two batches, depending on the size of your wok, to not overcrowd it. Flip chicken over and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add in garlic and stir frequently for 2 minutes. Add green bean mixture back into wok, followed by the sauce. Stir to combine and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes until heated through and sauce is thickened.

  1. As promised, this was flavorful, and the green beans were nice and crunchy! As the recipe creator suggests, prepping in advance makes the execution fast and easy. This dish has a richly flavored sauce (just a bit sweet for us) that formed a nice glaze for the chicken and vegetables. If you elect to serve - Read more ...
