How to make chicken green bean stir fry
This is a very simple recipe that only requires basic cooking abilities. I like to use fresh veggies, but if you use canned tomatoes and frozen green beans, you can eliminate having to prep the vegetables.
It's made in three simple steps:
- Prepare and cook the chicken. Cut chicken into thin slices. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and garlic to the skillet. Cook until all the meat turns white.
- Prep the vegetables while the chicken is cooking. Chop the tomatoes and snap off the ends of the green beans (if using fresh).
- Cook with remaining ingredients. Add the vegetables and seasonings to the cooked chicken. Mix well. Cover and cook at low heat for 10-15 minutes.
That’s it! Just some chopping, then you add everything to the pan and let it cook.
No need to spend a bunch of time in the kitchen for a tasty and healthy meal like chicken green bean stir-fry.
There are a few slightly different ways you can make this recipe based on what’s most convenient for you.
- Use canned/frozen veggies: I like to use fresh tomatoes from my garden, but you can always replace them with 1 can of diced tomatoes. For the green beans, you can use fresh, frozen, or canned.
- Frying: I like the flavor you get from frying in butter, but you could also use olive oil or avocado oil.
- Make a side: If you want a heartier dish, you could serve it over some easy cauliflower rice.
