Asian Grilled Chicken and Sesame Almond Green Beans

So, we are officially on a healthy heart kick at the Beckley house!  I’ve been scouring Pinterest and the internet for healthy recipes that still taste great!  Found one…full of flavor, satisfying and heart healthy!  Win-Win!

Asian Grilled Chicken:

  • 1/4 C Honey
  • 3 T Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 2 T Finely Chopped Parsley
  • 2 t Grated Ginger Root
  • 1/2 t Pepper
  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  1. In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and mix well.  Add chicken to marinade, turn to coat pieces , cover and refridgerate for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.

2.  Grill or broil (I grilled) to desired doneness.

Sesame Almond Green Beans

  • 4 C Fresh Green Beans
  • 2t Sesame Oil
  • 2 t Butter
  • 1/2 C Slivered Almonds
  • 3-4 T Sesame Seeds
  • Chicken Stock (optional)
  1. In a large skillet heat sesame oil and butter over medium high heat
  2. Add green beans and saute for 3-5 minutes
  3. Stir in almonds and sesame seeds until green beans are cooked to  desired doneness.  **I added some chicken stock to soften them further.  I added the chicken stock and covered the skillet to let them steam.   My family likes them on the softer side.


I also added some crispy cubed potatoes to complete the meal!  There were NO leftovers!
