Mushroom Chicken with Green Beans

This Mushroom Chicken with Green Beans is a quick one skillet dinner that your whole family will love!

The other night we had some Missionaries over for dinner.

I was going back and forth on what to feed them.

I finally decided on my Kung Pao Chicken with jasmine rice. I also served it up with my Asian Salad. For dessert we finished off some Chocolate Lava Cakes, I’m going to say it was a success for sure.

I prepped an additional batch of chicken that never got used that night so I came up with another recipe to use the chicken with…













A combination of mushrooms, fresh green beans, and skillet fried chicken all in a tangy sauce made the perfect one pan dish!













Mushrooms and green beans are two of my favorite veggies.

{right now I’m sure my dad and sister are rolling their eyes and gagging} 

My kids could eat mushrooms and green beans all day long, so this dish was welcomed by all in our little household.













In a skillet heat up a combo of vegetable oil and sesame oil. This little combo really gives the chicken a little something extra if you ask me!

Throw in the chicken and cook till golden brown.

Remove the chicken from the skillet to a paper towel and set it aside.













Add the green beans and mushrooms and throw in a little minced garlic and ginger. Saute it all for 5 to 6 minutes. Add in some soy sauce and tangy balsamic vinegar. Stir to coat.















Add the chicken back to the skillet and stir to coat.













Serve it up over a bed of rice.

I used brown rice this time.

{Mostly because all of my jasmine rice was used up the night before}













Look at those gorgeous mushrooms! They just absorb all the flavors, and are so so tender and yummy! This was a delicious combination of all of my favorite savory foods!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
