chicken and asparagus stir fry

This delicious dish came from Living Lean by Mike Dolce, the hubs got a while back. We were paging through it, trying to find new meal options to make a monotonous week feel more alive in the meal department. Luck would have it that the hubs stumbled across this one, and we fell in love with this delicious dish. It’s pretty simple, easy to make after work, and I think if Jack was older, he would like it, too. We’ve paired it with quinoa here, but we’ve also made it with rice and potatoes, too. All great pairings for this delicious dish or simply on it’s own if you’re carb leery. As always, enjoy!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces (I just use my kitchen shears) 
  • 1 bunch thin asparagus (about 20 stalks)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce or teriyaki

Start by breaking off the thick ends of the asparagus; wash what remains and cut into bite-sized pieces. Steam asparagus for 7-10 minutes, or until bright green, and then set aside.
