  1. Season the chicken pieces with garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and lemon juice. Set aside and let it marinate.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the string beans and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove the strings beans from the pan; place them on a plate and cover. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.

  3. Turn the heat to high. Add the remaining oil and add the chicken to the pan in a single layer - you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

  4. Add the strings beans back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the green beans are warmed through.

  5. In a bowl whisk together the chicken broth, honey, and Low-sodium soy sauce. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and string beans; cook for 30 seconds. Cook until sauce has just started to thicken, stirring constantly.

  6. Serve immediately, with rice if desired.
