Mandarin Vegan Chicken & Sriracha Green Beans

Sticky vegan chicken covered in an orange glaze with a side of spicy green beans.

We couldn’t finish writing the previous paragraph without drooling. This is one of our favourite dishes…ever!

For the chicken we used Gardein which can currently be found in the freezers at Sainsbury’s. The actual sticky mandarin glaze comes with the chicken in the packet, so this dish is very quick & simple.

Ingredients

  • One packet of Gardein Mandarin Chicken Pieces
  • 350g Green Beans
  • 1 Tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 1/2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • To garnish - Seasame seeds, Chopped Spring Onion, Chopped Chilli

Instructions

For the Gardein Mandarin Chicken

  1. Preheat the oven as per the instructions on the packet
  2. Open the packet of Gardein Mandarin Chicken pieces and take out the sauce sachet. Place it in some warm water to defrost (within its packaging)
  3. When cooked, take out the oven ready to be marinaded.
  4. In a pan, heat up the sauce and place the chicken pieces in tossing them around to coat them.
  5. Serve on a bed of rice with some sesame seeds, spring onions & chopped chillies sprinkled on top.

 

For the Green Beans and the Rest of the Chicken Instructions

  1. Place the chicken on the baking tray and bake for 15 – 18 minutes remembering to turn them over half way through.
  2. Meanwhile, place the green beans in a pan and boil for 2 – 4 minutes.
  3. When ready, run some cold water over them to cool them down with the aim to stop the cooking process. This will allow the beans to keep their lovely green colour and keep the crunch when eating them. (Even better, place them in a bowl of water and ice).
  4. Add some oil to a pan and place on a medium heat. 
  5. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or so then add the beans and mix, coating the beans with the garlic.
  6. Add the maple syrup, sriracha & soy sauce. Mix well and serve.
  7. Sprinkle the chopped chillies ontop.
