Sauteed French Beans/ String Beans with Chicken

I bought a pack of frozen young french beans or in US we called string beans from Trader Joe's.I was surprised the french beans from this store is really young,fresh and green.Furthermore ,this string beans come all the way from France,it's printed on the bag.Believe it or not the price is much better compare with the fresh string beans sell at farm market or supermarket coz I don't have to remove both ends.It's ready to cook,all I do is to run the string beans under cold water and let's it thawed.


1 lb string beans/french beans ( removed both end)

1/2 lb or 1 boneless chicken breast ( sliced)

1 red bell pepper ( wash and cut cube)

4 cloves garlic ( minced)

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp corn flour

1 tbsp chicken bullion powder

1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp cooking oil


1:Wash and thawed string beans.Cut bell pepper ,peel and minced garlic.Sliced boneless chicken and marinated with corn flour and soy sauce for 10 minutes.

2:Prepare skillet or wok at high heat,add in oil and minced garlic,fry until brown not burn.Then add in marinated sliced chicken meat,fry for another 2-3 minutes.If it's too dry ,add in 1-2 tbsp water,then add in string beans ,bell pepper,oyster sauce and chicken bullion powder.Saute for another 2-3 minutes.If you like the string beans retained crunchiness,don't overcooked or cook under slow heat.

3:Adjust the seasoning to your taste before remove from heat.Serve warm with rice or pasta.
