1. In a large skillet, heat up 2 Tbsp of sesame oil on medium-high heat. Add your chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through. Remove chicken to a separate plate. 2. Turn heat to high (there still should be some remaining oil in the pan. If not, add 1 Tbsp more). Add green beans and cook until green beans become blistered with little dark spots (4-5 minutes). 3. Bring pan back to medium heat (this may take a few minutes because your pan will be very hot). Add garlic, ginger, soy sauce, orange juice and red pepper flakes (if using). Add chicken and green beans back to pan along with tomatoes, coating in the sauce until everything is back to being warm. Top with any additional items like cilantro, sesame seeds, or scallions before serving alone or with rice.
