Chile Fried Chicken with Yardlong Beans


This healthy, easy and quick stir-fry is typical of Thai meal in a bowl recipes. You can substitue pork for the chicken, or a melange of seafood. Sometimes I use scallops and shrimp in this recipe, but I think chicken or lean pork taste the best with the green beans.

You can use Long Beans (Tua Phu) or regular fillet beans in this dish, or even the Winged Beans would be a fun alternative. Tua Phu range in length from 3" to as much as a foot long. They have four ruffley frilly edges forming wings along the entire length of the beas. They are yummy lightly cooked or raw in salads and stir-fry dishes. They have a delicate flavour a little bit like asparagus and sometimes are called asparagus peas. I love using them as they look pretty a bit exotic. They can be found in the summer in most Asian markets.
