This stir fry is loaded with chicken, green beans, and cabbage. It’s simply seasoned and includes the easiest sauce! Plus it’s ready in only 30 minutes!

This easy entree includes two of my favorite veggies, green beans and cabbage. Plus I’m using my favorite saucy flavor combo right now! It’s a mix of Coconut Aminos, garlic, rice vinegar, and crushed red pepper flakes. So much flavor but so simple!

You’ll want to use a large skillet to accommodate everything. I use my 12-inch pan. I wouldn’t recommend anything smaller or you’ll have a hard time fitting all the cabbage in there.

Throw this Easy Chicken Green Stir Fry together for the family on a busy weeknight or whip it up for meal prep and you’ll be eating well for days!

For this recipe you’ll need (full list of ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below):

  • Olive or avocado oil
  • Chicken breasts
  • Green beans
  • Cabbage
  • Minced garlic
  • Coconut aminos
  • Rice vinegar
  • A few simple seasonings

We’ll start by sautéing our chicken in a little oil. Season with salt and pepper. Once it has some browning, remove from skillet and set aside.

Next sauté the cabbage, green beans, and garlic. We want to get some color on the veggies.

Add the chicken back to the skillet with all the sauce ingredients. Cover and simmer until everything is warmed through and green beans are as tender as you want them.

How to shred cabbage

  1. Remove any tattered outer leaves.
  2. Cut the cabbage in half or in quarters.
  3. Carefully cut out the core and discard.
  4. Place the cabbage (halved or quartered) so flat side is touching the cutting board. Slice into thin shreds that are about about 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide.

What is coconut aminos

Coconut aminos is a soy sauce substitute that has a lot less sodium and contains no soy. It truly tastes like a slightly sweet soy sauce! Learn more about what it is and why it’s so popular in healthy recipes here.
