Asian Chicken with Green Beans and Noodles

Here is tonight's attempt to do something creative with chicken. I have a TON of sauces, mixes, and seasonings that I am determined to start clearing out. So tonight's victims were an envelope of Stir Fry mix, my last few drops of low-sodium soy sauce, and some TSG Peanut Ginger Sauce.

Asian Chicken with Green Beans and Noodles

3-4 Boneless Chicken Breasts
Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
1 packet Stir Fry Seasoning (used just less than 1/2 packet)
Brown sugar

Pound chicken breasts thin. Sprinkle with soy sauce, stir-fry seasoning and brown sugar (I didn't use a whole lot). Let marinate for 20-30 minutes. Grill until done (very techinical!).

Small serving of pasta, cooked
Handful of fresh Green Beans, cut in 1/2
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Tbls. Peanut Ginger sauce (or your favorite black bean or Asian-style sauce.
1 tspn. Oil

Saute veggies in oil for 3-4 minutes. Add cooked pasta and sauce. Heat for several minutes until hot.

The chicken was really great - a little sweet, almost like that bourbon chicken you get at the mall. It probably would have been even more carmelized had I cooked it in a pan rather than the grill. Turns out the Peanut Ginger sauce was a little spicy, so it made a great accompaniment to the chicken. Still have a whole bottle of that to use.
