Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch of asparagus tips (200 g)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken breasts into chunks.

  2. Heat up the vegetable oil in a pan or wok, add the chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 6-7 minutes until tender and lightly brown.

  3. Add the chopped asparagus tips, spring onions, garlic and ginger, and leave to cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the asparagus is tender.

  4. Combine the soy sauces, sesame oil, sugar and vinegar, and pour over the chicken and asparagus, cooking for a further 1 minute.

  5. Remove from the heat and garnish with chopped parsley.

Recipe Notes

Because asparagus cooks so quickly, there is no need to cook it separately. However, if you want to add other veggies that might need longer time to cook, you can remove the chicken from the pan once is cooked, add more oil to the pan, and stir fry the veggies on their own.
