Slightly green avocado oil is buttery with a mild avocado flavor. It has a high monounsaturated fat content that’s similar to olive oil, but thanks to a higher smoke point (520°F), it is quite versatile in the kitchen. Avocado oil also boasts eye-healthy lutein; cholesterol-lowering phytosterols; and in virgin varieties chlorophyll, which is good for detoxifying cancer-causing compounds.

  • Yield: 20 Servings


  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil, divided
  • 6 (4-oz) skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-in pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper (about 6 oz), sliced
  • 6 oz trimmed fresh green beans
  • 4 oz trimmed fresh sugar snap peas
  • ¼ cup minced shallot
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 2½ tsp lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste)
  • 1 tsp water
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • ¼ cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 3 Tbsp sliced scallions
How to Make It
  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high. Add chicken; cook, stirring often, until browned and done, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove chicken. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil, pepper, green beans, snap peas, shallot, and garlic. Cook until crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Whisk together fish and soy sauces, honey, sambal oelek, 1 teaspoon water, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to wok with chicken, stirring to coat chicken and veggies; cook until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; add peanuts and scallions.
