{chicken + asparagus stir-fry}

This is an easy 15 minute healthy dinner.  Bailey loves it so that’s a plus too.

So simple, but such great flavors.  Garlic + scallions + soy sauce + honey.  Plus, it’s healthy and comes together in a snap.  Kaia friendly too!! Chicken + Asparagus are items that you will always find in my fridge and freezer.  They are some of our staples.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon honey (seka hills, of course)
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

Combine soy sauce + honey.  Place in a ziplock bag.  Add chicken.

Tip: I like to cut my chicken into bite-sized pieces while still partially frozen, it makes it super easy.

Set in refrigerator until ready.  I did this step before work.  Made my dinner prep a cinch.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Saute asparagus until cooked, about 5 minutes.  Remove asparagus and set aside.  Remove chicken from marinade and add to same skillet.  You may need to add a tad more olive oil.  Saute until nearly cooked through.  Then add garlic + scallions + marinade from ziplock bag to the skillet.  Cook for 2-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil.  Don’t skip the sesame oil, it’s important.  Serve immediately over quinoa + brown rice mixture garnished with toasted sesame seeds.  Voila!!

Easy peasy weeknight dinner.

Kaia girls – what do you do on your Kaia free days?  Workout?  Sleep-in?  Stretch?  This whole BRIK session I’ve walked on each of my free days.  Which are only Wednesday + Sunday.  My girlfriend Sarah and I meet at Oasis and do a 3.68 mile loop.  The fresh air first thing in the morning get’s me going.  It’s a nice change from indoor workouts.  Not to mention, getting to catch up with a bestie while getting our steps on.  Wednesday mornings I’m sure to get a fitbit vibrate (goal notification) before I even step foot into my office.  It makes me feel so accomplished.
