Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

I love a good stir-fry at home.  What’s not to love? Veggies, pieces of meat, quick, and it doesn’t weigh you down after eating.  I love veggies of all kind but I prefer mine cooked rather than consuming it raw, like a salad.  The only drawback about making stir-fry at home is all that spattering.  Ugh! I hate getting spattered.  I know there are spatter guards out there but I’d rather not add more dishes to wash.  Yes, I’m lazy too, in case you haven’t picked up on that.

I used white chicken meat here, but feel free to use chicken thigh meat if that’s what you’re into.  This dish is still delicious the next day so your lunch is covered. 🙂 Have a great Tuesday!

For me, it took about 45-50 minutes.
