Honey Hoisin Green Bean Chicken Recipe 

When I was growing up, my family didn’t eat rice often. That all changed when my husband came around. His family ate rice routinely – like all the time! After all these years I have definitely gone to the “rice side” and many of our favorite meals incorporate rice with the top places on the list going to picadillo served over rice, fried rice with chicken and veggies and stir-fry with rice!! That’s why I was happy to partner with Minute® Rice to bring a new twist to one of our favorite recipes.

My go-to choices for stir-fry are chicken for a protein along with a veggie or sometimes using a bag of frozen mixed stir-fry vegetables. And then comes the sauce. My very favorite is a homemade hoisin and honey based sauce. That’s what I use in this Honey Hoisin Green Bean Chicken Recipe. And then for the crowning touch, I serve every stir-fry with rice.

Minute® Multi-Grain Medley Box

While we usually have white rice (or brown rice if I get my way), we now have a whole new partner for our stir-fry in Minute® Multi-Grain Medley – a mixture of 100% whole grains including brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice and quinoa. It has a bit of a chewy, nutty flavor and cooks up in just 10 minutes. On to the recipe!!

I found out that the Minute® Multi-grain Medley is also great for breakfast! I had some left over for dinner, so I just heated it in the microwave, added in a bit of pure maple syrup and topped with milk. Since the box comes in pre-portioned bags I know that I can now make it fresh for breakfast any time!
