Chicken with Basil & String Beans

Chicken w Basil & Beans
I’m trying to clean up my drafts folders and noticed that this dish, another regular on our quick weekday menu hasn’t found it’s way into this blog so I thought it about time for it to be written up.This is basically a quick stirfry dish best served with lots of steamed rice ๐Ÿ™‚

4-6 boneless, skinless Chicken Thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 large onion, sliced
1 teaspoon fresh Ginger, finely minced
1 lb. Green Beans, cut into 1 inch length
Fresh Basil leaves, as much or as little as you have or want (I used lots, about a cup full of leaves, left whole)
3 Tablespoons Oyster Sauce (add more or less according to taste)
1 cup water
Dash of White Pepper
4 Tablespoons Oil

Heat the oil in a wok and stir fry the onions and garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chicken and ginger and stir fry until the chicken pieces have taken on some color and are almost cooked. Add the green beans and oyster sauce, stir fry for a minute and add the water. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the basil leaves and white pepper and remove from the heat. Serve over rice.

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    Thanks for sharing. I always see fresh basil at the grocery but I don’t know what to do with it except make pasta. I will probably do the recipe this weekend.
