    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the creamy relish
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the creamy relish

    Wash and dry the green beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a large bowl, combine the hot sauce, pickle relish, and mayonnaise

    Cook & finish the rice
    2 Cook & finish the rice

    In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the raisins. Cover to keep warm. 

    Cook the green beans
    3 Cook the green beans

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until most of the water has cooked off. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Coat & cook the chicken
    4 Coat & cook the chicken

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch and half the spice blend (you will have extra); toss to coat. In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of cornstarch sizzles immediately when added, add the coated chicken in an even layer (discarding any excess cornstarch). Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. 

    Dress the chicken & serve your dish
    5 Dress the chicken & serve your dish

    Discarding any oil from the pan, carefully transfer the cooked chicken to the bowl of creamy relish; stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the dressed chicken with the finished rice and cooked green beans. Enjoy!
