Asian recipe: Spicy chicken and green beans stir-fry

I had a craving for spicy chicken and green beans stir-fry today. 
I ate this stir-fry dish at a Chinese fast food restaurant a while ago and wanted to make something close to the taste by myself.

Since I remembered the dish had a common "salty and sweet " Asian taste plus spiciness, I mixed these two ingredients below.
  1. Korean BBQ sauce
  2. Chili garlic  sauce
I wasn't sure how this would taste like, but it was a big success.
I just mixed them with 6(Korean BBQ sauce) : 1(Chili garlic sauce) ratio and poured the sauce into chicken and green beans. Of cause, you can adjust the amount of chili garlic sauce depending on how spicy you want.

Asian recipe: 
Spicy chicken and green beans stir-fry

  • 2 Chicken thighs (about 2/3 lb(300g) after removing skins and bones)
  • 1.5 lb(about 70strings)Green beans(700g)
  • 1 teaspoon Soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Japanese sake or white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil or chicken skin
  • 3 tablespoons Korean BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Chili garlic sauce
  1. Boil green beans in boiling water (add a little bit of salt in a pot)for couple of mins. Drain water and set aside.
  2. Remove chicken skins and bones and cut them into 1 bite-sizes. In a bowl, add chicken pieces, soy sauce, Japanese sake and corn starch and mix well. *This seasoning process make the stir-fry taste better!
  3. Turn the heat to high and add vegetable oil (or chicken skin) .*If you are using chicken skin, wait until oil comes out from the skin and remove the skin from the pan.
  4. Add chicken to the pan. Spread all the chicken pieces on the pan and cook for about 1 to 2mins each side. (Try not to move the chicken very much at this process to make good grill marks on chikens.
  5. Add green beans and stir-fry chicken and beans together for couple of mins.
  6. Add Korean BBQ sauce and Chili garlic sauce and mix well for about 1 min and serve.
