When we hear about stir fry recipes, we often think of them as being automatically healthy, but in all reality, some can actually call for high-sodium ingredients, lots of oil, and fatty cuts of meat. This chicken broccoli and asparagus stir fry is a delicious stir fry that not only has simple, easy-to-find ingredients, but it is also easy on the fat, salt, and calories. In addition, it’s also a very fast and simple recipe to make when you get home after work.
This yummy stir fry recipe calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts as the primary protein source. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are very low in fat and cholesterol, much lower than if you used the whole chicken with the skin still on it. Then you have your vegetable servings with broccoli (using both the crunchy stems and the wonderful leafy tops so there is no waste) and delicious asparagus with its perfect, delicate, and irresistible flavour. Both of these lovely vegetables are very high in fiber and good old-fashioned phytonutrients, so once again we are getting the maximum health benefits from this meal.
This Chicken Broccoli and Asparagus Stir Fry recipe combines the traditional stir fry ingredients of ginger and garlic for a surprisingly refreshing savoury flavour – and then, to top it all off, you will gently sweeten it with honey. Can you imagine it now? Ginger and garlic and – HONEY. Yum! And just when you think you can’t pack any more flavour in there, you will be asked to add some sesame seeds. And not just sesame seeds, either. You will then add sesame OIL to blend with and fully complement the rest of the ingredients.
