A note about serious food allergies
Any part of the chicken is delicious, but for our money, nothing beats the thighs. Thighs are where the flavor lives, as well as the juiciest part of the bird. In this meal, the flavorsome fowl is augmented by the delish almonds, adding a smoked, crunchy touch. This meal also combines two of our favorite qualities in any recipe: quick and easy. Giving you maximum return on your time investment, and delicious flavor to boot? Thighs will be your go-to chicken part from now on. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a

sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Customize It Instructions
If using chicken breast, pat dry and cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Steps 3 and 5, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Steps 3 and 5, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.
If using shrimp, follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Steps 3 and 5, cooking until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.
If using flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Steps 3 and 5, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.
Cook the Rice
Bring a small pot with rice and 1½ cups water to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner and set aside covered.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim ends off green beans and cut into 1" pieces.
Trim and cut white portions of green onions into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions. Keep white and green portions separate.
Coarsely chop almonds.
Pat diced chicken thighs dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
Sear the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add diced chicken thighs to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 4-6 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Cook the Green Beans
Add green beans, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until green beans are lightly charred and crisp but still tender, 3-4 minutes.
If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.
Transfer green beans to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Make Sauce and Finish Dish
Add teriyaki glaze, rice vinegar, brown sugar, Sriracha (to taste), and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add chicken and any accumulated juices and green beans. Stir often until glazed and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
