Instructions :

  • To begin, prepare the sauce for your stir-fry by combining the following ingredients in a medium bowl: soy sauce, water, garlic, coconut sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar, fresh ginger, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes, and arrowroot starch (or cornstarch). Put aside for later.
  • To a big pot, measure out half a tablespoon of sesame oil and place it over a medium heat setting. When the oil is hot, adding the ground chicken and seasoning it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper is the next step. The meat should be broken up as quickly as possible and cooked until it is no longer pink. Once the meat has finished cooking, place it in a bowl and set it aside. Maintain the heat in the pan.

 

  • Put a quarter of a tablespoon of sesame oil into the same pot. When the onions have begun to soften, add the chopped onion and sliced carrots, and continue to simmer for another two to four minutes. Add the green beans and bell pepper after that, and continue to boil them for an additional six to eight minutes while tossing them often.
  • This should be done until the green beans are slightly soft but still have a bite to them. Return the ground chicken that has been cooked to the pot along with the vegetables.

  1. Create the sauce for the stir-fry. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the stir fry sauce by whisking them together. After that, set the mixture aside.
  2. Prepare the chicken by cooking it. Cook your ground chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a big pot or deep skillet that has been seasoned with sesame oil. After the chicken has been cooked through, place it in a bowl.
  3. Prepare the vegetables by cooking them. First, you should begin by heating the onion and carrots for a few minutes so that they begin to get tender.
  4. After that, you should add the remaining vegetables. The green beans should be cooked until they are somewhat soft but still retain some bite to them.
  5. Bring the stir fry to a boil. After the ground chicken has been cooked, place it back into the pot with the vegetables, reduce the heat to a low setting, and then add the sauce. Prepare the sauce by cooking it over low heat until it starts to thicken.
  6. Serve with garnishes. Using toasted cashews, sesame seeds, and scallions or green onions, garnish the stir fry with the ingredients. Have fun!
