Another asparagus dish! This is a quick and easy main dish stir fry. The girls go to a bible study by and for senior high kids on Monday nights and they bring dinner to eat before they get into the study. Each week has a different theme, some easy like this week's Asian, some a bit quirky like foods that are circles or colors or foods that start with the same letter as the first letter in your first name. I looked for an easy, spring stir fry for the Asian theme. Another winner from pinterest!
Chicken and Asparagus Stir-Fry
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1 inch)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
4 coves garlic, thinkl sliced
2 scallions, chopped
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
In a small bowl or in a ziplock bag combine soy sauce and honey. Add chicken and stir to coat. Set in the refrigerator until ready.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and saute until cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove the asparagus with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Remove chicken from marinade and add to skillet (you may need to add more oil). Saute until nearly cooked through, about 5 minutes. Then add garlic, scallions, and the reserved marinade to the pan. Saute for an additional 2 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat and stir in the asparagus and sesame oil. Serve immediately with rice, garnished with toasted sesame seeds.
