My husband adores Chinese food, I suppose that's why he married a Chinese woman. He's been dissatisfied with some of the food he's had to eat during this $3 a Day Diet Project so I thought I'd make him something special.

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Green Beans and Chicken

1/2 onion ($0.08)
1/4 teaspoon garlic ($0.06)
2 chili peppers ($0.08)
2 lb green beans ($1.00)
1/2 lb ground chicken ($0.50)
2 teaspoon soy sauce ($0.06)
1 teaspoon mirin ($0.08)
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil ($0.03)
1 salt and pepper ($0.02)

Recipe Directions for Spicy Green Beans and Chicken

  1. parboil green beans.

  2. Pour sesame oil into a skillet.

  3. Dice onion and chili peppers, I used jalepenos, and mince garlic. Add to the oil and lightly brown.

  4. Add ground chicken to the skillet along with soy sauce, mirin, salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is done. It won't brown but it should crumble and turn from pink to a brownish color.

  5. Add the drained green beans and coat the green beans with the mixture.
