Thai Chicken with Mushrooms and Green Beans
I am sorry I didn’t take a picture but this is one easy dinner and good too. Serve this over a bowl of rice.
Serves 5 with no extras so keep that in mind. When I make it again, I will add half more of everything.
3 T. oyster sauce
2 T. fish sauce
2 t. sugar
1 lb. green beans – cut into 2 inch pieces, I used scissors..very easy that way.
6 scallions – white and light green parts cut into 1 inch slices
1 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts pounded thin and cut into strips
1/2 lb. cremini mushrooms stemmed and quartered
1 large jalapeno – halved and sliced into 1/8 inch pieces
Mix the oyster sauce, fish sauce and sugar into a small bowl.
In a wok (I use a big non-stick frying pot)
heat 1 t. of the vegetable oil until it is really hot. Now add in the green beans and stir fry them at the high heat for about 5 minutes. They start to get crispy and blackened. Take out the beans and put them aside.
Add another 3-4 T. oil on a high heat. Add the scallions and 1 t. kosher salt. Fry until golden. 30 seconds.
Add the chicken in 3 batches. Wait a few seconds in between batches and stir-fry until the chicken is white. It takes about 2 minutes or so.
Add in the mushrooms, jalapeno and beans. Fry for another 2-3 minutes until everything is getting crispier. Then add the oyster sauce mixtures and stir-fry until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Another 3 minutes or so.
I put a scoop of rice in each individual bowl and and served the chicken over the top. Really good and very simple.
