Chinese String Bean Chicken Recipe

Chinese String Bean Chicken

This recipe for Chinese string bean chicken is a stir-fried dish that consists of pieces of chicken cooked with a sauce, green beans, and onions. This dish is very similar to the string bean chicken you would find at Panda Express. The chicken gets a lot of its flavor from the marinade. The marinade is a combination of simple ingredients such as soy sauce, wine, sesame oil, cornstarch and sugar. The marinade time is not long, only around 20 minutes. If you want more flavor you can allow the chicken to marinade in the refrigerator for longer. I enjoy serving this dish with fried rice and pot stickers. Enjoy.
