    Of course, green beans can easily be swapped for asparagus, carrots, red peppers or any other crunchy veggie you happen to have on hand. That’s the best part about stir-fries, they can turn almost any vegetable into something magical.

    1. Delicious! I marinated the chicken and added onions. I used sweet chili sauce instead of chili paste, if I use it again, I will reduce the hoisin sauce because of the sweetness. I am delighted I now have a healthy, low fat recipe to make one of my favorite take out foods at home, thanks for posting.

    2. Aloha!
      I made this for dinner tonight…so tasty! I used thighs and Instead of rice wine vinegar I used one tablespoon of Shaoxing cooking wine. Delicious flavors! Will definitely make this again and try with different veggies. Thank you for sharing!

    3. I made this just barely following the recipe for guidance and it was just fabulous. I often dont have all the ingredients but make due. I’d make this again. Everybody loved it.
