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.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, cut into 1" dice and follow same instruction as chicken thighs, cooking until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1 ½ 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. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    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 with a pinch of salt and pepper. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  3. 3

    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 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.

  4. 4

    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.

  5. 5

    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, return chicken and any accumulated juices and green beans to pan. Stir often until chicken and green beans are glazed and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing chicken mixture on rice, and garnishing with almonds and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
