  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 17-20 minutes.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans. Cut into 1" pieces. Peel and mince shallot. Drain water chestnuts. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. On a separate cutting board, cut chicken into 1/2” pieces. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 6 minutes. Add ginger, soy sauce, and chili garlic sauce and cook 2 minutes, or until lightly caramelized and chicken has reached a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove to a plate and reserve pan (no need to wipe pan clean).

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    Place same pan used for chicken over medium heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil, shallots, green beans, and water chestnuts. Cook for 6 minutes while stirring, or until green beans are tender and bright green. Season with half the Szechuan seasoning. Taste, and add more if desired.
