Chicken with Wax Beans and Soy

We got Wax Beans in our first Farm Share (I forgot to list that and the cherries in my last post! Oops!) And I knew we were eating out all wknd so I wanted to integrate them into our entree since we were already having the beets and beet greens as sides and I didnt want to give Ryan veggie overload! Plus... Im not a huge fan of plain green beans and figured the same would hold true for the wax kind (Note: I steamed the 2nd half for dinner the other day and they werent my fav plain but not NEARLY as gross as green beans ;) ). SO I tried to think of what dishes normally have green beans in them that I could do and Chinese food - chicken with beans - came to mind. I have never made chinese food and know that I was eons away from authentic... but this was the inspiration. And it turned out REALLY good! Ryan said it had a chinese flair to it and I liked it WAY better than chinese (which I am lukewarm on) plus it was healthier :)

1.5 pounds of thin sliced chicken breasts, cut into bit size pieces

4-5 clove garlic, minced

about 6 green onions (scallions) green part only chopped into approx 1 inch long pieces

approx 1/2 to 1 pound wax beans washed and chopped into 1/2s and 1/3s.

low sodium soy sauce (enough to cover)

Put all the ingredients into a large ziplock freezer bag and top wiht the soy sauce (enough to marinate in). Let sit about 30 min (longer would be fine Im sure but I didnt have time!)

Dump into a hot pan and stir often until chicken is done through. Serve!
