This is a very easy and simple dish which the only two main ingredients are combined: chicken breast and asparagus.


1 chicken breast cut in small cubes
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ tablespoon soy sauce
2 ½ tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ tablespoon corn starch
1 bunch asparagus cut in approximately 1 ~ 1½ in


Marinate the chicken breast with the garlic, soy sauce, ½ tablespoon olive oil, salt, pepper and corn starch. Let it sit for 5~10 minutes.

Heat the remaining olive oil and stir fry the chicken breast for approximately 4~5 minutes.

Once the chicken cubes are done, remove from heat and set aside. In the same pan add the asparagus and stir fry for another 2 minutes, add the chicken and stir gently.

Serve hot with white rice.

I hope you enjoy this simple and healthy recipe of chicken with asparagus.
