Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon +1 teaspoon vegetable oil divided use
  • 2 1/2 cups green beans trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth or water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large pan over medium heat. 
  • Add the green beans and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes or until beans are tender.

  • Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. 
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.

  • Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the green beans back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the green beans are warmed through.
  • In a bowl whisk together the chicken broth, honey and soy sauce. 
  • In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  • Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and green beans; cook for 30 seconds. 
  • Whisk in the cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken, stirring constantly.
  • Serve immediately, with rice if desired.
