Serves4CourseDinnerCook35 minsTotal Time35 mins
  • 1 Thumb Ginger
  • 2 Unit Scallions
  • 1.5 Cup Jasmine Rice
  • 2 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 24 Ounce Chicken Tenders
  • 2 Tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
  • 4 Clove Garlic
  • 1 Unit Lime
  • 12 Ounce Green Beans
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
  • 6 Tabelspoon Soy Sauce (Contains Soy, Wheat)
  • 1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
  1. Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring 2½ cups water and a large pinch of salt to a boil in a medium pot. Peel ginger and mince until you have 2 TBSP. Mince garlic. Trim, then thinly slice scallions, keeping greens and whites separate. Halve lime; cut one half into wedges.
  2. Once water is boiling, add rice to pot. Cover, lower heat, and reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and keep covered.
  3. Toss green beans with a large drizzle of oil on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in oven until crisp, 10-12 minutes. After they’ve finished roasting, toss green beans with 2 tsp sesame oil, half the sesame seeds, and a squeeze of lime (we sent more oil than needed).
  4. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Add to pan and cook until browned but not cooked through, 2-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside. TIP: Don’t overcrowd the pan with chicken—you may want to work in batches.
  5. Heat a large drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Whisk together soy sauce, ¼ cup sugar, 2 TBSP vinegar (we sent more), and cornstarch in a small bowl. Put scallion whites, garlic, and ginger in pan and cook, tossing, until softened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce mixture and bring to a simmer. Let thicken slightly, about 2 minutes.
  6. Add chicken to pan and toss to coat. Cook until no longer pink in center, 2-3 minutes. Add a squeeze of lime to rice, then fluff with a fork. Divide rice, green beans, and chicken between plates. Drizzle with any sauce in pan. Sprinkle with scallion greens and remaining sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges.
