Chicken and green bean stir fry

A stir fry is one of my favorite ways to incorporate protein and veggies into my meals. Here's a great dinner idea that is packed with nutrients. 


  • 1/4 cup Tamari
  • 2 teaspoons Toasted Sesame Oil 
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar 
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil 
  • 1 lb. Green Beans, trimmed 
  • 1 inch Ginger, minced 
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Green Onion, chopped 
  • 2 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, diced into 1-inch cubes 
  • 1 cup julienned Red Bell Peppers 
  • 1/2 cup Water Chesnuts 


  1. In a small bowl, whisk tamari, sesame oil, and rice wine vinegar 
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat
  3. Add green beans and saute for a few minutes, until beans turn dark green and are tender but still crisp. (If the beans are particularly thick, add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan and cover for a few minutes to steam cook the beans). 
  4. Do not overcook the green beans, they will go back in the pan briefly again
  5. Remove the beans from the pan and set aside 
  6. Add one more tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan, and add ginger, garlic, green onions, and chicken. 
  7. Saute, stirring continuously until the chicken is lightly browned and cooked through. 
  8. Add the red bell peppers and saute for another minute 
  9. Add water chestnuts and saute for an additional minute 
  10. Next, add the Tamari mixture and cooked green beans 
  11. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to toss all the ingredients together, and saute for 2-3 minutes to complete cooking 
  12. Serve over brown rice, top with a dash of sesame oil and garnish with sesame seeds
