If you’re in the mood for something absolutely delicious, flavorful, and easy to make for dinner, then you most certainly need to try this easy chicken green bean stir fry. I first shared this recipe back in 2020 when I was cooking up one of those clean-out-the-fridge dinners, and I couldn’t believe just how amazing it turned out.
This wonderful stir fry is packed with all the rainbow veggies, a slightly sweet sesame ginger sauce, and roasted cashews for a little added crunch. HOLY YUMMY.
I especially love this meal because you can easily switch up the veggies and protein with whatever you have on hand. I’ve included tons of ideas for customizing below, including ways to make it vegan! This will truly be one of your new fav weeknight dinners.

What kind of sauce goes in this chicken green bean stir fry?
Typical stir fry sauces are made of a few different components: soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, a sweetener like sugar or honey, and plenty of seasonings. They also usually contain a thickening agent such as cornstarch or arrowroot starch to make the perfect sauce.
In this chicken and green bean stir fry I make a lip-smacking delicious sesame ginger sauce that generously coats all the chicken and veggies perfectly and still leaves a little extra for serving over a bed of rice.
Ingredients in chicken green bean stir fry
Not only is this chicken green bean stir fry paleo-friendly, but it’s also gluten free, grain free and dairy free, which means it basically ticks every box out there. Personally, I love that this healthy stir fry is packed with veggies and comes together in about 30 minutes, making it a great weeknight dinner option. This recipe is also great for mixing and matching what you have in your fridge; don’t be afraid to get a little creative with what you have on hand! To make this green bean stir fry you’ll need the following:
- Chicken: we’re using lean ground chicken, but you can also use ground turkey. You’ll cook it in sesame oil with some garlic powder, salt & pepper.
- Veggies: this beautiful stir fry is packed with carrots, onion, red bell pepper & green beans. AKA a rainbow of veggies.
- For the sauce: that delicious stir fry sauce is made with low sodium soy sauce, garlic, coconut sugar (or brown sugar), sesame oil, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes & arrowroot starch (or cornstarch). These will be pantry staples for so many recipes!
- To garnish: I love topping my plate with roasted cashews, sesame seeds, and green onion.
Experiment with your fav proteins
What’s unique about this healthy chicken green bean stir fry is that it uses ground chicken or ground turkey instead of diced chicken breast (or thighs) so that it can simmer in that delicious sauce. It’s seriously better than takeout! Of course, you can also use:
- Diced chicken breast or chicken thighs
- 1 can of drained, rinsed chickpeas for a vegan option
- Or cubed or crumbled tofu for a vegan option
Out of green beans? Try these veggies instead
If you’re out of green beans or aren’t a fan, feel free to sub in any or a combo of the following:
- Snow peas
- Extra bell peppers
How to make chicken and green bean stir fry
- Make the stir fry sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the stir fry sauce ingredients and then set it aside.
- Cook the chicken. Add sesame oil to a large pot or deep skillet and cook your ground chicken with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Transfer the fully cooked chicken to a bowl.
- Cook the veggies. Start by cooking the onion and carrots for a few minutes so they start to get soft, then add the rest of your veggies. Cook them until the green beans are slightly tender but still have a bite.
- Combine the stir fry. Add the cooked ground chicken back to the pot with the veggies, turn the heat to low, and add in the sauce. Cook over low heat until the sauce begins to thicken.
- Garnish & serve. Top the stir fry with roasted cashews, sesame seeds, and scallions/green onions. Enjoy!
How do you cook green beans for stir fry?
In this easy stir fry recipe, you’ll cook your green beans in a pan with the bell pepper for just about 6-8 minutes. This allows them to absorb flavors while still maintaining a nice crunch, which is essential. The key is not to overcook your green beans! You’ll know when your green beans are cooked when they turn a beautiful bright green color.
What to serve with stir fry
This stir fry is delicious as is, but I recommend serving it over:
- Brown rice
- My famous coconut rice
- Cauliflower rice
- Rice or ramen noodles
Store any leftover green bean chicken stir fry in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

30 Minute Sesame Chicken Green Bean Stir Fry
Healthy sesame chicken green bean stir fry made with gorgeous veggies like fresh green beans, carrots and red bell pepper all cooked in a flavorful sesame ginger sauce. This easy chicken and green bean stir fry takes just 30 minutes to make for a paleo, protein-packed weeknight dinner that's great for meal prep. Enjoy as-is or with rice, cauliflower rice or quinoa!
- For the sauce
- 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
- ⅓ cup water
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar (or sub 1 tablespoon honey)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil (preferably toasted sesame oil)
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (or sub 1 tablespoon tahini)
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ½ tablespoon arrowroot starch (or sub cornstarch)
- For the chicken
- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil (preferably toasted sesame oil
- 1 pound lean ground chicken (or ground turkey)
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- Freshly ground salt and pepper
- For the veggies
- ½ tablespoon toasted sesame oil (preferably toasted sesame oil)
- 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 12 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
- For serving
- ½ cup roasted cashews, chopped
- Scallions (green part of the onion only)
- Extra sesame seeds
First make your stir fry sauce: in a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, water, garlic, coconut sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes and arrowroot starch (or cornstarch). Set aside.
Add ½ tablespoon sesame oil to a large pot and place over medium heat. Once oil is hot add in ground chicken and season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Quickly begin to break up the meat and cook until no longer pink. Once cooked, transfer meat to a bowl and set aside. Keep heat in pan.
In the same pot, add ½ tablespoon sesame oil. Add in chopped onion and sliced carrots and cook for 2-4 minutes until onions begin to soften. Next add in green beans and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for an additional 6-8 minutes or until green beans are slightly tender but still have a bite. Add cooked ground chicken back to the pot with the veggies. Immediately turn the heat to low and add in the sauce. Cook for an additional 2-4 minutes over low heat until the sauce begins to thicken.
Serve with brown rice or quinoa for a healthy dinner. Garnish with roasted cashews, a few extra sesame seeds and scallions. Serves 4.
If you are serving with rice, I suggest starting the rice first before you begin cooking, especially if it’s brown rice as it takes about 40 minutes total to cook.

I made this for dinner last night. It was easy, family-friendly and delicious! Will definitely make again 😊
So happy to hear that!
Sounds delicious! Do the calorie counts per serving include rice or quinoa, or is it just for the veggies & chicken with the sauce?
Made this for dinner tonight and my family and I LOVED it. So easy! Much faster and healthier than take out. Will definitely make again!
Perfect! So happy to hear that!
It definitely took me more than 30 minutes to make – more like an hour. We both loved it; hubby even went back for seconds. This one is a winner and will go into the rotation for nights when I have a little extra time or when I plan ahead and prep the veggies the night before.
Everyone’s prep times can be a bit different, but the next time you make it I bet it’ll be much quicker! So glad you both loved it 🙂
Absolutely loved this recipe. It reminded me of lettuce wraps (minus the lettuce) and stir fry combined into one. I agree with the below comments of building in a little extra time to prep the veggies if you think you might need it.. However, overall it was simple and delicious!
Absolutely! So delicious. And yes, everyone’s chopping speeds are a bit different 🙂
I made this tonight with what I had and turned out excellently. I followed the sauce recipe exactly. Veggies I used broccoli, asparagus and red bell pepper. I found I had to steam the broccoli for a few minutes and then added the pepper and asparagus to get it to be the texture I prefer. Topped with toasted peanuts. Turned out awesome! Would definitely make again!
Perfect! Love those veggie additions 🙂
One of the best dinners we’ve had in a while! My kiddos even ate all the green beans, which they normally won’t eat. Thank you!!!!
Made this tonight, absolutely delicious! Quick and easy to make. Very flavorful and packed with veggies and lean meat! We will be making this again soon!
So happy you loved it!
This recipe was delicious. Shared some with my daughter and family who all loved it and my mom who also loved it. Basically it appealed to 3 year olds and a 90 year old. I have to admit that i did not have the seasame oil in my kitchen so didn’t use it but the fresh ginger and garlic made it. I did use great beans although I worried they might be too crunchy but they cooked well. I used carrots and onion and added some zucchini cause I had it as well as some red pepper. It was delicious and I will make it again. Oh I used ground turkey. Thanks for the great recipe!
Amazing! I’m so glad everyone enjoyed. This one’s great for customizing with what you have on-hand, too 🙂
So simple and delicious! Have made it three times in the last month!!
Amazing! So happy to hear that!
This was so delicious! Subbed turkey for chicken and used coconut aminos. Also, I only used 1TBS of coconut sugar. The family loved it. Thank you for the recipe.
Perfect! So glad the whole family loved it 🙂
Delicious! This dish would even be good with broccoli (in addition to the string beans)
Absolutely! Love broccoli in here 🙂
Loved this so much I had to comment! Made with ground turkey and added mushrooms and extra bell peppers. The sauce is awesome!
Perfect! So glad you loved it!
Great recipe! I used broccoli and substituted ground ginger and garlic for the fresh and it worked out! My daughter loved it too. Cashews on top make it even better.
Perfect! So glad you both enjoyed 🙂
This has been my favorite recipe of quarantine! I’ve made it every week and plan to just start doubling it this week. Such great flavors and love that it’s also healthy. Yummm!
LOVE this! I’ve made it several times and it’s just as good each time, and a great way to clean out vegetables from the fridge!
So happy to hear that! Absolutely 🙂
What would you recommend for a veggie version, other than tofu?
Chickpeas would be great!
Would these freeze well to make and heat up later?
The veggies and chicken should freeze just fine! I’d recommend cooking the rice once you’ve thawed the chicken & veggies and are ready to eat.
Your recipes are always amazing, and this one is no exception. The sauce was the star of the show, and I loved how versatile the recipe is. We used crockpot shredded chicken instead of ground chicken and didn’t even season it – just tossed it with the sauce and cooked to thicken it. So tasty and easy! I look forward to trying it with ground chicken soon.
Perfect! Love that idea. Glad you enjoyed!
I don’t know why I’m so shocked that this recipe was so good, but it was SO GOOD! Also, i don’t know if I’ve ever had ground chicken before. Lol. I always use ground turkey. Anyway! Can’t say enough about how easy and delicious this was. Thank you!!
Amazing! So happy you loved it! And ground turkey would work just as well in here 🙂
Amazing recipe! Cook it all the time. I’ve used ground turkey instead of chicken since it’s sometimes easier to find and it’s just as delicious!
Perfect! So happy to hear that!
We had tons of fresh veggies in the fridge to use, so I basically focused on using the sauce on this recipe. The sauce was better than what I expected!!! So happy with how it turned out. My family was very satisfied. Definitely will make again when I have tons of veggies sitting in the fridge or I go to the Friday Market again. Thanks for coming up with very tasty items.
Perfect! This one’s a great way to use up extra veggies 🙂
Perfect weeknight meal – easy, nutritious, and delicious.
Absolutely! On repeat at our house 🙂
A great Tuesday night meal for our family! Loved the sauce so much! Didn’t have any red peppers, so subbed mushrooms. It was perfect that way! I had never toasted sesame oil before and it really added to the flavor of the dish. I had always felt before that sesame oil smelled so good in the bottle, but never added to the flavor of the dish. I just needed to toast it! Thanks for that tip!
Perfect! So glad it was a hit 🙂 and yes, the toasted sesame oil is amazing!
Loved this recipe! I haven’t had much luck making Asian inspired dishes at home, but this one was a success! The sauce had such a great flavor and tasted great after soaking into the ground turkey I used. Can’t wait to eat the rest of it for lunch today!
So glad you liked this one! The best leftovers 🙂
This recipe is fabulous!!! We have just had it for dinner and it is definitely becoming a regular dish in our household! I love how it is packed with veggies, and still satisfies our take-out cravings! I would love more similar recipes! Thanks so much 🙂
So happy to hear that! And noted 🙂
I made this recipe last night – it was SO good. My picky children ages 8 and 9 really enjoyed this. So great to find recipes that the whole family enjoys.
I did not have low sodium soy, so I used a little less than 1/3 of a cup and added some water. Great choice as it was the perfect amount of flavor without tasting salty!
Thank you for the easy, healthy, family friendly recipe!
Perfect! So happy to hear that!
This is delish!! Perfect for a quick veggie packed meal prep dish. Will definitely make again!
Absolutely! Glad you enjoyed 🙂
I made this recipe for my family and they absolutely loved it! It was simply moreish as we say in the UK! Will definitely be making again.
Amazing! So glad everyone loved it 🙂
This was an easy and delicious weekday meal. Ive never used ground meat in a stirfry type entree. It works well! Very yummy.
Super easy! So happy you liked it!
We made this for supper tonight and it was a big hit! Easy to make with ingredients we regularly have on hand. My husband and I spiced ours up with a spicy oil. My 5 year old liked it and my 2 year old ate two bowls. Will definitely make again.
Love that! Such a great family dinner 🙂
This dish was so delicious and so easy. I am making it for the second time. My son is so enjoying it! and I love it too.
Recipe was easy to follow and the meal turned out wonderful!
This recipe is on regular rotation for our family! My husband, 3 year old and I all love it and I’ve made it multiple times. Super quick and easy to make and love that it’s full of veggies.
very easy and flavorful! perfect weeknight dinner 🙂
made this with tofu instead of chicken and it was phenomenal. my husband craves chinese takeout once a week and he said this did the trick for him! so delicious.
Love that idea! So delicious.
Easy and delicious.
Perfect dinner! 🙂
Eating this right now, and boy o boy I’m In love with all of the flavors in this recipe. I only did 1 teaspoon brown sugar and left out the rice vinegar (don’t like the smell of it) Will definitely make this for a family gathering one day in the future
Perfect! Glad you enjoyed!
We LOVE this recipe and make it at least 2-3x/month!
So happy to hear that!
Delish!! Tonight was one of those nights in which I didnt know what to make so came in here searched stir fry with green beans(what I had in my freezer) and I happened to have all the ingredients!! I always keep peppers, carrots and onions in my fridge, ambitious kitchen is my life savior!!! My only swaps were using olive oil and frozen green beans which I cooked on the microwave then added it with the chicken. Perfect recipe for a quick dinner and will be making it for meal prep! Thanks Monique!!
I made this because I was looking for an easy dinner that included a veggie, protein, and carb; it did not disappoint! The flavors in the sauce are delicious and so much better than bottled sauces. I love that the veggies are versatile. The only thing that didn’t work out was the sauce thickening at the end. I’m not sure what happened, but the rice soaked it the extra sauce and it was still delicious!
This is a go-to in my house when we need something quick, healthy, but flavorful and yummy. Absolutely love this recipe!
Such a great weeknight dinner! Glad you love it 🙂
I have made several AK dishes and loved them all! This one, however, takes the cake! So easy to modify and make your own – I added snow peas, mushrooms, and celery, in addition to the green beans and bell peppers, and used leeks instead of onions. I’m not a fan of cooked carrots so I used butternut squash – it “squished up” a bit, but the entire dish was absolute amazing! My husband loves all the dishes I have made from AK, but this one he could not stop raving about! Definitely a 10/10, but honestly, so are all the other dishes I have made! ‘Can’t thank Monique enough for sharing such deliciousness!
This one’s great for customizing! So glad you both enjoyed 🙂
The recipe is fantastic. So delicious. The sauce and the garnish makes it more superb. The only thing I made sort of different is that I added frozen garden peas as didn’t have much green beans. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.
Perfect! Glad you loved it!
I love this recipe!
It is beautifully balanced with spicy sweet salty flavors.
I prefer to make it with honey.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Perfect! Happy to hear that 🙂
This is one of our favorite recipes! My fiance isn’t a big fan of green beans, so we replace them with broccoli. It’s the best stir fry sauce EVER!
Perfect! So happy to hear that!
Honestly didn’t expect this yo be soooo good. Better than take out and so easy to prepare. It is the perfect balance of salty and sweet!
Right?! Perfect dinner 🙂
This is great!! Didn’t change a thing except triple the sauce so we had plenty. Thank you!!
Perfect! Glad you loved it!
This was so good!!! Took me more like 45 min cause I had nothing prepped, but still so simple and easy. I omitted the red pepper flakes so that my 5 yo could enjoy it, and she devoured 2 servings! My husband and I added the spice at the table. Will definitely make again.
Perfect! Glad it was a hit 🙂
I don’t know what makes this so good but it’s probably the recipe on rotation most for me!! I never thought of using ground chicken in a stir fry before in place of chicken breast; but it’s perfect for absorbing all of the sauce.
Love that! One of my favs, too 🙂
Quick and delicious!!
Glad you enjoyed!
Super flavorful! My husband loves stir fry, so I already had all the ingredients on hand. Easy to make! He asked me to add this to the rotation of recipes for dinner.
So easy and delicious!!
I tried this based on the recommendation of another food blogger and I’m quite pleased! It’s a very tasty alternative to takeout! It did take longer than suggested to prep all of the veggies but I love all the bold colors and flavors in this dish! I may even experiment with another protein next time!
Love that! So glad you gave this one a try. It’s great for meal prep so once you’ve made it once you can enjoy lunch & dinner for a couple days 🙂 Perfect for experimenting with other proteins, too!
so simple and yummy – great crunch! I didn’t use arrowroot/corn starch – just 2 tablespoons of flour mixed with water to thicken. definitely thickened the sauce!
Perfect! Glad you enjoyed!
Delicious and easy! My husband really liked it and we’re adding it to the “rotation”
That’s great to hear, Tonya! 🙂
The food was really good and tasty! I served mine with cauliflower rice and put the low sodium soy sauce in the rice while it cooked. I’m not complaining but this is not a 30 minute dish. From start to finish it took me and my husband 2 hours. 😬 So if you are cutting everything up as far as the veggies and the chicken it will take longer than 30 min.
Hi, Deanna! Glad you loved this one 🙂 I use ground chicken in here and it’s never taken me more than 30 minutes to make. Glad it was worthwhile though!
Another winner of a recipe. I swapped zucchini for red pepper and used cubed chicken breast. So tasty, fast and flavourful. AK is my main go-to website for healthy and tasty meal inspirations. Keep them coming, Monique!
Those are great additions! And thank you, I’m so happy you’re here 🥰
I’ve probably made this 5-6 times. It’s a great weeknight option. I always go with turkey and mix up the veggies. Thanks for a great recipe!
So happy you love it, Becky! Great idea to use turkey + other veggies 🙂
Soooooo good. Great weeknight meal with such a pop of sweet and spicy flavor!
Note: Green beans take a few more minutes to cook than listed.
Nice!! So happy you loved this one, Emily 🙂
Made this with your coconut rice and both were a HIT with the fam. Once the veggies are chopped, it’s super easy to throw together.
Woohooo! Great call on pairing with the coconut rice. So good!
This dish is so flavorful and delicious! I have been making it on repeat and so has my best friend since I sent it to her. Make it soon, you will be happy you did!
I’ve made this recipe twice, and it was absolutely delicious both times. I used chicken breasts cut in small pieces instead of ground chicken. However I will say that it does NOT take 30 minutes to make this – in fact I don’t know in what world it could possibly take this little time, even if somehow all the ingredients were prepped ahead of time. It literally took me 4 hours each time (most recipes on this site take me about twice the time to make, I guess I’m slow). So if you’re looking for a quick recipe, this is probably not a good choice.
I make this dish all the time!! Love to substitute different veggies like broccoli and add more onion. Yum yum yum
Modified to what I had on hand, but this has become an easy weeknight meal I make almost every week!
Love this chicken stir fry! The sauce is amazing and easy to make. Also, sometimes I just use a bag of frozen veggies if I’m short on time. It’s a regular in our dinner rotation!
This meal has become a staple meal for our household. I use 1/2 the amount of red pepper flakes to reduce the heat for me, but my husband adds it back in on his plate. We add the meal to brown rice or use it to make lettuce wraps.
I loved this dish, as did my husband & picky toddler! It was healthy but very satisfying. I chopped all of the veggies and made the sauce earlier in the day so all I had to do at dinnertime was throw it all in a pan. My toddler loved “helping” by breaking the green beans in half during prep. I subbed lean grass-fed beef and served over rice noodles — definitely don’t skip the roasted cashew garnish! Thanks for an awesome recipe that will be a new weeknight go-to!
I’m so happy you all loved this one!! Thanks, Arden!
Red peppers cook fast, so I delayed putting it in until the beans were almost peak green.. Instead of ground chicken, used a leftover chicken breast from Saturday’s grilling. The sauce is quite good — used chicken stock instead of the water. Overall, very delicious.
So glad you enjoyed this one, Harris!
This is a winner!! I had everything except the ground chicken but I had ground pork so used that. Loved the sauce. It will be my go-to stir fry sauce! I am loving your recipes and have tried quite a few so far. I look forward to trying lots more!!
That’s a great sub! I’m so happy you loved it. I can’t wait for you to try more, too!
I make this stirfry often, exactly as written, and it is perfect! The sauce is very delicious. The whole family loves it. 🤍
Loved this recipe! I used chicken breasts cut into strips and subbed broccoli for green beans. Will use this sauce again!
So happy to hear you loved it, Nicole! Great idea to sub in broccoli, sounds amazing 🙂
This is a household favorite! It seems to take me longer than 30 minutes – but I always do a double batch and it’s worth every minute! Quick question – does the nutrition info include rice? I don’t think so – but thought I would ask and be hopeful.
Hi! So glad to hear that the time it takes is worth it 🙂 No, the nutrition facts don’t include rice. Good question!
Love this recipe – a great meal prep one as well. I’ve found that frozen green beans have worked a bit better for me and cut down the cook time
Good to know about frozen green beans! Happy you love it 🙂
Simple, freakin’ delicious. It’s a weekly staple in our household!!
🙌 YAY! So glad you guys are enjoying this recipe 🙂
This recipe is on regular rotation at our house. So quick & easy to make, healthy and super flavorful… yum!
One of my fav quick meals, too! Happy you guys love it 🙂
So simple to make and So So good!! We’ve been eating this on repeat this week and are loving it. I’m surprised by how big the portions are too; it’s so filling! Thank you for the recipe!
Yaaaay! So happy you love it, Rebecca! One of my fav weeknight meals, too 🙂
We love this recipe so much. It’s so good. Leftovers are awesome. It does take me longer than 30 just because of the chopping. Worth it.
Happy to hear that! And ok good, glad it’s worth the effort! 🙂
Super yummy! Great fast, flavorful and versatile easy week night meal! A hit with the whole family.
I make ground chicken stir fry in my Wok a lot. This is the best recipe i have used. Delicious! Healthy,, deep flavors enhanced by sesame oil and tahini. I followed the recipe but included some mirin rice wine to help cook the green beans in my Wok. Excellent in every way! Try this one!
Ahh I’m so glad you loved this one! Great call to add the mirin — sounds amazing 🙂
Made this last night for Sunday night dinner it was fantastic… thanks Monique!!!
I loved making this dish today. It was full of flavor. I followed the directions and ingredient list, but I did sub a white onion for half a red onion and half a yellow onion because it was all we had. The only part of the recipe that I think I could improve on was the thickness of the sauce. My sauce seemed a little runny and I was wondering if that was the same for anyone else? If not, do you have any tips on how to make it thicker?
I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Sounds like it needed a little more corn starch / arrow root starch 🙂
This was delicious! Will definitely make again!
I made this on a whim because I had some green beans I needed to use so I didn’t shop for this recipe, but used what I had at home. Turned out great with ground turkey and missing the onions. The flavor was delicious and cooking it was easy. I reduced the red pepper flakes by half and it was prefect level of spice for me. My husband loved it too.
So glad you had the ingredients on hand already (don’t you love that?!) and that you both enjoyed it!
Made it exactly as written other than ground turkey instead of chicken, served it over brown jasmine rice and it was easy and delicious! We will definitely be having this again.
Delicious!!!! We’ve been trying to find recipes to use all the vegetables from our garden. We will definitely make again over the winter with the vegetables we put in the freezer.
Followed the sauce recipe exactly, but used whatever else I had on hand for the chicken (boneless thighs) and a package of frozen stir fry veggies. So delicious! I cut the chicken into 1 in pieces and cooked in the sesame oil and avocado oil, adding s&p and garlic powder, as the recipe calls for. Removed, added veggies until they were cooked then added back the chicken and sauce. Really one of the best stir fry sauces I’ve had! Sadly no leftovers!
Sooo delish!! I followed the recipe except instead of serving on rice or quinoa I mixed in those skinny rice vermicelli noodles! Better than any “take-out” stir-fry dish, the sauce is unreal! I made with coconut aminos and honey and topped with scallions and cilantro 🤤
Thanks again Monique, you are my go-to for recipes!
Absolutely! SO glad you found this recipe and are loving it 😊❤️
Such a quick recipe yet so flavorful and we GOBBLED. IT. UP. Go make it right now!!!!
I made this for my family and everyone, including my mom loved it! I have shared the recipe with at least 8 friends! I made it exactly by the recipe. Super delicious!
Loved this recipe! I made it for the first time this evening, but while the cook time was 30 minutes, the prep time was equally as long, So I think it is important to plan for this, at least initially. Prepping the vegetables and storing in your refrigerator until needed for the meal.
The sauce was the best I’ve ever made. I think the toasted sesame oil made all of the difference from others. I also used honey as the sweetener instead of brown sugar or coconut sugar.
I plated over brown rice, and the colors made the meal attractive and appetizing. My husband loved it and I’ll make it again!
I made this recipe with ground turkey. My husband said it was even better the second day! Packed full of veggies and flavor this recipe is a keeper.
I’ve made this several times and it is always SO good! The sauce is delicious with a great balance of meat and veggies. It comes together quickly and my whole family enjoys it.
