to serve 6:
chicken breasts
1¾ lb
fresh asparagus
2 cloves
2 tablespoons
soy sauce
2 teaspoons
2 tablespoons
sesame oil
salt and pepper
4 teaspoons
sesame seeds


How to Cook Asparagus and Chicken Stir

  1. Remove any skin from the chicken breasts and cut them into bite-size pieces - about 1" (2.5cm) cubed. Wash the asparagus and trim the ends, then cut on the diagonal into 2" (5cm) long pieces. Peel and finely chop the garlic.
  2. Place the soy sauce in a bowl, add the sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Place a heavy-bottomed frying pan (skillet) or wok on a medium heat and add the sesame oil, add the chopped garlic and fry until it turns pale brown. Add the asparagus and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until it is crisp-tender. Add the chicken pieces and continue to stir fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Add the soy-sugar mixture and toss until the asparagus and chicken are well coated. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle sesame seeds over prior to serving.

This dish can be allowed to cool and served as a salad. It works just as well hot or cold. Equally, it can be served in smaller portions as either a snack or a starter.

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again May 29 2014
This dish was very good and easy to make. I added a few red pepper flakes to spice it up a little. Next time, I think I'm going to add a little more soy sauce. Also, since we prefer our food spicy, I'm going to add a little ginger and several more turns of cracked black pepper to bring out the flavor.

I thought this recipe was wonderful. We all cleaned our plates, including finicky kids!!! I substituted half of the asparagus for two cups of broccoli florets and a handful of shredded carrot (to add some color). Worked beautifully.
