Lemon Sesame Chicken with Green Beans
Servings = 4 | Serving size =4 ounces chicken with green beans and sauce
Cooking Time = 30 Minutes
This recipe does not make very good leftovers. Cooking time does not include marinating time.
4 4 ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce or gluten-free tamari sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil (divided)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 lb young green beans
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (if desired)
1/8 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp sesame seeds
Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Cut into cubes about one inch in size.
Whisk together the soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a small bowl. Place the chicken and half of the marinade in a zipper bag and let marinate for at least one hour. Retain the other half of the marinade.
Heat a wok to medium high and cook the chicken for approximately 5 minutes, or until done, stirring constantly. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside.
Quickly wipe the wok clean and add the remaining 1 tsp of sesame oil, the kosher salt, and stir fry the green beans until crisp tender, about 4 minutes.
Add red pepper flakes, the remainder of the marinade, and return the chicken to the wok, stir well and add the sesame seeds.
