Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free), plus additional for serving
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 whole boneless skinless chicken breast (about 1 lb), cut into ΒΌ-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons high-heat oil (like peanut or non-GMO canola)
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and diagonally sliced
  • 3 cups cooked white or brown rice
  1. Combine the cornstarch, water, soy sauce, garlic, and sugar in a dish or large ziploc bag. Shake or stir until the starch dissolves. Add the chicken and put it in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and marinade, plus the asparagus. Stir fry for roughly 3 minutes, or until all of the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Serve over rice with soy sauce on the side.
