We all have a soft spot for the sticky-sweet chicken that’s a staple of takeout dinners. But it’s not exactly a meal for any night of the week—until now. We’re swapping out the heavy glaze for a fresh burst of ginger and a swirl of honey and soy sauce. Served with tender green beans on a bed of jasmine rice, it’ll give you a good reason to toss out the phone number for your delivery joint.

Once water boils, add rice to pot. Cover, lower heat, and reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until no longer pink in center, 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.

Place green beans in a medium, microwave-safe bowl with a splash of water. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in wrap. Microwave on high until just tender, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Thoroughly drain green beans, then add to pan. Cook, tossing occasionally, until lightly crisped, 3-5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lime.
