You'll never bother with takeout again after you offer your family this simple and satisfying Chinese-style dish. Both delicious and healthful, it tastes great when served over quick-cooking rice, vermicelli, or cellophane noodles. Before serving, make sure to cut up the chicken and beans into tiny pieces for tots and larger pieces for bigger youngsters.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, cornstarch, and lime juice until cornstarch dissolves. Set aside.

Step 2

Rinse chicken; pat dry. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips; season with salt and pepper. Trim beans on both ends and chop scallions. Heat vegetable oil in warm wok or very large skillet. Add chicken, beans, and scallions, and stir-fry on high heat until chicken is white throughout, about 5 to 6 minutes. Use a garlic press to add garlic cloves to mixture, and stir-fry another minute. Reduce heat to medium.

Step 3

Stir sauce mixture again to mix through and then pour into pan and cook, stirring, until sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Step 4

Variation: If you and your family prefer more sauce, add 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the sauce mixture.
