  • 1 bunch asparagus woody ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast , cut into one inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  • Cut asparagus into 2" pieces.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus to the skillet and season with a pinch of salt. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until crisp-tender (tender, but still has a "bite" to it). Stir in garlic during the last minute. Spoon onto a plate and add set aside.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in the hot skillet. Add a little more olive oil if needed. Cook on each side until golden, about 3-4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce by stirring together lemon juice, honey, soy sauce and cornstarch.
  • Return asparagus to the skillet, add sauce, and stir, cooking until sauce is thickened and chicken and asparagus are coated completely.
  • Serve hot.
