Ginger Green Beans & Mushroom Chicken Stir Fry

Ginger Green Bean and Mushroom Chicken Stir Fry ~ The Complete Savorist

 My quest is to get my daughter to love Asian flavors as much as I do.  Where I live, our Asian offerings are not as plentiful as I’d like.  So instead of take out, she gets my concoctions at home.  This may be good; it may be bad. Time will tell.

Luckily for me, my weekly dishes seem to be paying off.  She loved this dish.  That made this mom super happy.  My taste tester, lover of all Asian food, especially Japanese food, gave this one his approval.  Look for a Japanese miso dish next week, thanks to him.I loved the flavor combo of the sweet honey but the spicy ginger.  Green beans are a personal favorite.  Chicken is a staple.  This dish was simple and easy, and came together quickly.  And if you’re speedy with a knife, you can have this dish prepped and to first bite in about 30 minutes.
