Chicken and Asparagus Stir-Fry

This is one of our favorite meals. Chad and I Chinese food. So I'm always looking for new things to make to help our cravings so we're not eating out all the time. This recipe is not only yummy, but extremely easy!

the goods:

2 T. cornstarch
1/4 c. cooking wine (optional)
1/4 c. vinegar
1 T. oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried ginger
2 chicken breasts, sliced
1/4 c. green onions
6 1/2 oz. fresh asparagus (i usually put the amount that we like as a family in)
2 T. soy sauce
1/4 c. water
1/3 c. slivered almonds
brown rice
  1. Heat pan or wok over high heat, add oil and swirl to coat.

  2. "Velvet" chicken. Add cornstarch, cooking wine, and 1/4 c. vinegar in a bowl. Mix. Add sliced chicken and coat with mixture.

  3. Meanwhile, add garlic, ginger, and chicken. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until the chicken changes color.

4. Add green onions and asparagus and stir fry for a further 2 minutes or until onion is soft.
5. Stir in soy sauce and 1/4 c. water. Cover and simmer until chicken is tender and veggies are tender crisp. Sprinkle with almonds.

Serve over brown rice or noodles.

  1. This looks fantastic! Question: Looking at your photo, it looks like there's enough to serve four. Would you say that is accurate?
