instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Halve the green beans. In a bowl, whisk together the soy glaze, sesame oil, vinegar, and black bean-chile sauce.

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups 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. Cover to keep warm.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

While the rice cooks, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the halved green beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are lightly browned and softened. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Coat & brown the chicken:
4 Coat & brown the chicken:

While the rice continues to cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add the flour and toss to thoroughly coat. In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of flour sizzles immediately when added, add the coated chicken in an even layer (shaking off any excess flour before adding). Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned.

Finish & serve your dish:
5 Finish & serve your dish:

To the pan, add the cooked vegetables and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished chicken and vegetables over the cooked rice. Enjoy!
