Ginger Chicken Asparagus Stir Fry

Ginger Chicken Asparagus Stir Fry created by justcallmetoni

This is a delicious stir-fry recipe and a really quick and easy dinner. Although the original recipe calls for asparagus, I have used fresh green beans (cut into 1-inch pieces) in place of the asparagus. The amounts for this recipe serves really only about 3 people, however all ingredients can easily be doubled to serve more. This is delicious!

    This is a very simple and flavorful dish that we both loved. Added a teaspoon of Chili garlic sauce for some kick. It was very good and will be made again.

    Made it exactly as stated, since asparagus season has just begun. Delicious! Love the combination of asparagus, 'shrooms, and scallions!

    Mmmmmmm, mmmm, mmmm! This is a lovely combination of flavors for this stir-fry! We made some minor changes- but only b/c it's what we had on hand.... broccoli and snow peas instead of the asparagus and green onion and we sort of tweaked the garlic and ginger amounts (we added more) with a dollop of honey to the mix. So, so good- really fresh tasting with the lemon and fresh ginger. A definite keeper! Thanks for a delicious winner, Kitten! **Update.. we use this recipe a LOT and often switch up the veggies. I particularly love to use Meyer lemons with it- because they are not quite so tart. Still LOVE this recipe and it is definitely a family fav. Thanks again!

    I'm not going to give any stars because I altered the recipe so significantly, that I don't think my stars would be an accurate reflection of what Kittencal posted. I do want to share my comments so if others plan to alter it they can see what I did and how it turned out. I basically followed the recipe for the sauce exactly, but doubling it and adding 2 T honey. Of the other ingredients (chicken, mushrooms, green onions, asparagus, sesame seeds) I only used asparagus. Then I added sprouts, water chestnuts, onions, and baby corns. The sauce was too lemony for our liking, and the ginger was a little strong too. I wonder if normally the chicken would absorb some of this strength? Anyway, we will definitely use it again, just cut back on the lemon and ginger......and maybe add chicken :)
