Ingredients
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken, white or dark meat
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed or Chinese long beans, cut into 3- to 4-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil, plus more to reheat
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped or sliced
  • 2 red Fresno chiles or red long chiles, seeded and chopped or sliced
  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 inch ginger root, grated
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or liquid amino
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Salt
  • 1 pound spaghetti or whole wheat or whole-grain spaghetti
  • Toppings:
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Thinly sliced scallions, whites and greens
Directions
  • Place the chicken in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm it up. When firm, thinly slice the chicken on an angle and reserve.

  • Bring a few inches of water to a boil and fill a medium bowl with ice water. Par cook the beans, 3 to 4 minutes, then shock in the ice water. Drain and pat the beans dry, and reserve for later use.

  • Heat half of the vegetable oil over high heat in large skillet. Pat the chicken dry and sprinkle with black pepper. Add the chicken to the hot pan and stir-fry until brown, then remove. Add the remaining vegetable oil, and heat it up. Then add the beans and stir-fry until they begin to brown. Add the garlic, chiles, onions and ginger, and stir-fry until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the stock, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, Sriracha and sesame oil. Toss to combine, and then turn off heat. Cool and store for a make-ahead meal.

  • To serve, bring the chicken mixture to room temp for a few minutes and heat a pot of water to boil for the noodles. Salt the water and cook the pasta to al dente.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the stir-fry oil in large skillet over high heat and quickly heat up the chicken mixture. Drain the noodles and toss with the chicken. Top with sesame seeds and scallions.
