Stir-Fried Asparagus with Chicken

by

Yield: Serves 4

Slices of asparagus are stir-fried until crisp-tender and then combined with lightly cooked strips of chicken and toasted sesame seeds.

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed, peeled, and sliced diagonally
  • 1 large chicken breast boned, skinned, and cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed

Instructions:

1. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, then blend in the soy sauce and lemon juice. Stir in the sugar and garlic. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the asparagus and stir-fry over high heat for 30 seconds or until bright green and crisp-tender. Transfer to a large plate.
3. Pour more oil into the pan if necessary, then add the chicken. Stir-fry until firm. Return the asparagus to the pan. Stir-fry briefly to heat through and pour in the soy sauce mixture. Continue stirring over high heat until the sauce bubbles and thickens. Sprinkle on the sesame seed and serve.
