Mandarin Chicken Stir-fry with Green Beans

This Mandarin Chicken Stir-Fry is an easy go-to weeknight dinner and leftovers can easily be repurposed in a Thermos for stress-free lunch the next day.

Who doesn’t love a recipe you can make once and eat twice? Stir-fry is such a simple meal to make on even the busiest of weeknights. All you need is a favorite protein, veggies and sauce. We love ours over brown rice (and those 90-second rice pouches are a live saver!).

This recipe keeps things fresh and light with chicken breast, chopped green beans and mandarins.

Tip: Save a few minutes on cooking time! Buy “steam in the bag” fresh Snipped Green Beans from Pero Family Farms. Packaged in a unique microwavable bag, cooking them in the microwave while preparing the chicken will make dinner even easier.
