Ingredients

  • 8 oz green beans
  • 1 lbs chicken tenderloins cubed
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil or more as needed
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Bring all the Teriyaki Sauce ingredients into a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Heat skillet or wok with vegetable oil under high heat. Once oil is hot, add green beans (make sure it is pat dry if it is wet) and stir continuously until green beans are slightly charred on the outside and soft on the inside. This will take at least 3 minutes and most likely more. If green beans are burned but the insides are still not cooked, lower heat slightly.
  • Remove green beans and set aside.
  • Add more vegetable oil to skillet if needed and heat under high heat, then add chicken pieces. Stir and sear chicken until it is fully cooked. This should only take a couple of minutes - avoid overcooking chicken.
  • Add green beans back into the skillet, add garlic, then add Teriyaki Sauce.
  • Stir to combine chicken and green beans in Teriyaki Sauce. Once it is combined, remove from heat promptly.
  • Serve (highly recommend with rice) and enjoy!
