Chicken Stirfry with Toasted Almonds

I recently made this chicken stir fry dish that is super easy to make! It tastes really good too! It's basically just some chicken breast sauteed in Asian flavors with string beans and toasted almonds. What I do is roast some chicken breast ahead with just salt, pepper and olive oil. I roast it with the bone in. It makes a huge difference to the taste if you cook chicken breast with the bone in as it comes out more moist and tasty. I learned this from one of my faves, Ina Garten. She always recommends to cook chicken breast with the bone and skin in. Then after you can just take the bones out and skin (if you don't' like it) and then use the cooked chicken in salads and any other recipes that calls for breast. Read more below to see the rest of my dish!

Ingredients : slivered almonds, green onion, calamansi

Ingredients : French string beans, red onion, garlic.

Ingredients : Oyster Sauce, pepper, salt, fish sauce.

Ingredients : Cooked chicken breast ( bone and skin in )

Saute the garlic and onions in canola oil. Throw in the french beans and saute for about three minutes.

Cut up the chicken and take the bones out and put it in with the beans. Add the oyster and fish sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze some calamansi all over.

Add in the green onion and toasted almonds.

Serve and enjoy!

It really is such an easy dish to make and so tasty too! Complete recipe down below!
