    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If starting with frozen chicken breasts, set in bowl of cold water to defrost.
    2. 2
      Take end off green beans and wash.
    3. 3
      Rinse rice in several changes of water until water is mostly clear. Add fresh water for cooking and set aside.
    4. 4
      Dice chicken into bite-sized pieces (approx 1/2-inch cubes). Place diced chicken in bowl.
    5. 5
      Add marinade ingredients to chicken – soy sauce, sherry, garlic (chopped or pressed through garlic press). Stir well to distribute marinade.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate chicken.
    7. 7
      Start rice to cook before starting stir fry.
    8. 8
      Prepare stir fry sauce. Add brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, sherry and garlic (again chopped or pressed through garlic press) in small bowl. You can also add fresh ginger if you have it.
    9. 9
      Add cornstarch and stir well, pressing out any lumps until sauce has a consistent milky brown color.
    10. 10
      Heat two tablespoons of oil in an large skillet over medium-high heat.
    11. 11
      Add green beans. If green beans don’t fit in one batch, cook half at a time. Use long tongs to turn beans over while cooking so that they do not burn.
    12. 12
      If beans are particularly thick, add two tablespoons of water to pan and cover skillet for a couple of minutes to steam-cook beans to desired tenderness. Do not overcook, as beans will go back in the pan briefly later.
    13. 13
      Remove beans from pan.
    14. 14
      Add two more tablespoons of oil to pan. Add chicken and stir to separate pieces.
    15. 15
      When chicken is cooked (turns from pink to white), add prepared stir fry sauce and stir. Sauce will quickly turn from milky light brown to glossy dark brown as it cooks.
    16. 16
      Add string beans and stir to combine. Add dash of sesame oil if desired.
    17. 17
      Remove chicken and string beans to serving dish.
    18. 18
      Serve over rice.
