  • 1 lb chicken breast thinly sliced, about ¼ inch thick
  • cups green beans cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup white onions chopped, about ⅓ of a large white onion
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil

Chicken Marinade


Optional - Add ONE of the following to the sauce if you want it spicy


  • In a medium size bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade and add in the thinly sliced chicken breast. I recommend letting this marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to overnight. Otherwise, let this sit while you prep the other ingredients.
  • Add all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a wok or pan over high heat and add oil. Wait until the pan is hot and then lay the chicken pieces flat in a single layer - leave out the marinade. In order to get a good sear, don't crowd the pan and leave the chicken pieces alone until you get a golden brown color, anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip over the chicken and repeat. Remove the chicken from the pan.
  • Add the green beans and white onions to the pan and saute for 2 - 3 minutes. Lower the heat to medium and add the chicken back in.
  • Next add in the sauce - use about half if you prefer less sauce(stir the sauce before adding it as the cornstarch will settle). Saute everything together for 1 - 2 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Top with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.


Store leftovers in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
