Indonesian Chicken with Green Beans

I have been asked to share this recipe and I am more than happy to do so. I got it from a iVillage food email in 2006 and am just getting around to trying it! If I get photos taken tonight, I will share those too!

Indonesian Chicken with Green Beans

Eater’s Choice Low-Fat Cookbook by Ron Goor, PhD, MPH, and Nancy Goor



  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 pound green beans, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
In a skillet over medium-high heat, saute the chicken in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until cooked through. Set aside. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and saute the garlic, ginger and onion until soft. Add the green beans. Stir until the beans turn bright green. Add the lime (or lemon) juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, turmeric, salt and 1/4 cup of the water. Slowly add the remaining water if necessary, although the sauce should not be watery. Add the chicken pieces and stir until the chicken is completely covered with sauce. Serve.
