Chicken and Asparagus Stir-Fry

I saw a recipe that used chicken and asparagus and I thought I'd try to my own. This dish was simple, delicious, and fairly healthy.

Chicken and Asparagus Stir-Fry

Ingredients:
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 3 green onions
  • 4 tbsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp of sweet chili sauce
  • 1 cup of uncooked wild rice (or your choice of rice)
Directions:
  1. The night before (or an hour before) chop the uncooked boneless chicken breasts into bite-size cubes. Place the cubes in a container with orange juice, ginger, honey, and soy sauce. Let marinate overnight or for an hour or two in the refrigerator. 
  2. Start cooking the rice; bring 2 cups of water and 1 cup of rice to a boil and let simmer for 40-50 minutes. 
  3. While the rice is cooking and is about halfway done (20 minutes left), steam the asparagus. First, chop the asparagus into bite-size pieces. Then steam it by following these instructions: http://www.wikihow.com/Steam-Asparagus. I steamed mine using the microwave but you could use one of these other methods. 
  4. While asparagus is being steamed, begin cooking the chicken. Dump the whole mixture from the marinating bowl into a large skillet and cook on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes (or until chicken is mostly cooked). 
  5. While chicken is cooking, chop the green onions into small pieces. 
  6. Once the chicken is mostly cooked, add the green onions and minced garlic to the skillet and cook for another 3 minutes. 
  7. Then add the steamed asparagus and the sweet chili sauce to the skillet and cook for another 2-4 minutes. 
  8. Serve the mixture over the rice and enjoy!
