Servings 4 servings


  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1-inch)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 bunch asparagus cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds optional


  • In a small bowl or in a ziplock bag, combine soy sauce and honey. Add chicken, and stir to coat. Set in the refrigerator until ready.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus, and saute until cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove the asparagus with a slotted spoon, and set aside.
  • Remove chicken from marinade, and add to skillet. Saute until nearly cooked through (with the insides still slightly pink), about 5 minutes. Then add garlic, scallions, and the reserved marinade to the pan. Saute for an additional 2 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the garlic is fragrant.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cooked asparagus and sesame oil until combined. Serve immediately with rice, garnished with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
