      Directions

      Put the bean sauce, honey, rice wine, light soy sauce, 1 tablespoon peanut oil, brown sugar, dark soy sauce garlic and ginger into a bowl and stir to combine. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Cover the bowl, refrigerate and leave to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour and as long as overnight.

      Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat, making sure the grates have been brushed clean and lightly oiled before cooking.

      Remove the chicken from the marinade. Reserve the marinade, transfer to a small pan and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Set aside.

      Divide and thread the chicken onto the 4 bamboo skewers, 5 to 6 pieces of chicken per skewer. Grill the chicken on each side until charred, about 2 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium and place the green beans on the grill alongside the chicken skewers, basting the chicken and beans with the reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting every couple minutes until the outside edges are glazed and sticky and the chicken is cooked through; 10 to 12 minutes total. Serve hot or at room temperature, garnished with the chiles.

        I've made this twice now, once as skewers according to the recipe, the second time just as marinated and grilled chicken breasts when I had no skewers -- my family loved it both times! Smaller pieces of chicken absorb more flavor rather than larger pieces like chicken breast halves. The green beans are a perfect complement to the chicken too, and so easy to make. It was a little hard finding the yellow bean sauce. Someone at our local Asian market recommended golden soybean sauce ... I don't know if it is the same as yellow bean sauce but it was delicious anyway. I highly recommend this dish for an easy but fun, fancy, and delicious meal!
