Young green beans work best with this dish. If you find yourself with some more mature beans, however, steam them for 2 or 3 minutes prior to stir frying so they won't toughen up.

|4 4 ounce||boneless skinless chicken breasts|
|3 Tbsp||low sodium soy sauce or gluten-free tamari sauce|
|2 Tbsp||sesame oil (divided)|
|1 clove||garlic (minced)|
|1/4 cup||lemon juice|
|1/2 lb||young green beans|
|1/8 tsp||red pepper flakes (if desired)|
|1/8 tsp||kosher salt|
|2 tsp||sesame seeds|
Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Cut into cubes about one inch in size.
Whisk together the soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a small bowl. Place the chicken and half of the marinade in a zipper bag and let marinate for at least one hour. Retain the other half of the marinade.
Heat a wok to medium high and cook the chicken for approximately 5 minutes, or until done, stirring constantly. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside.
Quickly wipe the wok clean and add the remaining 1 tsp of sesame oil, the kosher salt, and stir fry the green beans until crisp tender, about 4 minutes.
Add red pepper flakes, the remainder of the marinade, and return the chicken to the wok, stir well and add the sesame seeds.
