String Bean Chicken Stir Fry

One of my favorite Chinese dishes is String Bean Chicken. If it’s on the menu, I pretty much get it every time! I love remaking Chinese take-out dishes at home because I can be sure to avoid all MSG and make it much more nutritious for my body. And this String Bean Chicken Stir Fry was so fun to re-make!

Ingredients
  1. 3 chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  2. 1/2 white onion, peeled, cut into ½ inch wedges
  3. 1/2 lb. green beans
  4. 1/4 cup organic soy sauce
  5. 1 tsp. sesame oil
  6. 1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  7. 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  8. 2 tbsp. organic rice vinegar
  9. 7 baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  10. 1/4 c. avocado, grapeseed, or olive oil
  11. 1/4 c organic, non gmo cornstarch
  12. Sriracha sauce, to taste
  13. 1 cup chicken broth
Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper lightly. Place cubed chicken and the cornstarch in a bowl. Toss to coat evenly.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together: the soy sauce, grated ginger, minced garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar.
  3. Heat avocado oil over medium-high heat in a wok or large sauce pan. Add the cornstarch coated chicken and cook until almost cooked through, about 6 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  4. Add in the onions and the green beans, saute for about 5 more minutes.
  5. Add in the sauce and 1 cup of chicken broth as well as the mushrooms. Let the sauce simmer, stirring often, until the sauce is reduced by half and thickened, and the green beans are tender-- about 10 minutes.
  6. Add sriracha to taste. Also, you may need to add a little extra salt depending on your taste buds. Taste it before serving and you decide!
  7. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
  1. To keep this recipe Gluten Free, use Tamari instead of Soy Sauce.
