I love asparagus as they are so healthy and always available at the market, especially this time of year when I can get tender and young asparagus.
The key to making a flavorful and delicious asparagus chicken lies in the stir-fry sauce. The sauce has to be savory, with the perfect balance of flavors, plus a bit of heat, which I lend it from Thai sweet chili sauce.
Another key technique is to make sure that you don’t overcook the asparagus. They should remain tender with a nice crunch.
This chicken and asparagus recipe takes only 15 minutes to make. Serve this with rice or simple noodles and dinner is ready.
