Chicken is like this magical protein, isn’t it? Shake the wand (or wooden spoon) a few times and viola! – dinner was offered. At least it seems that easy. The chicken is probably a staple in my house (just take a look at my freezer and you’ll see what I mean) and an unexpected crowd on those days and nights when I needed a quick and delicious meal to serve my family.

HOW DO THE CHICKEN AND ASPARAGUS STIR FRY?

The first thing I did was to loosen my chicken and cut the boneless, skinless chicken breast into 1.5 inch pieces for easy and even cooking. I put this aside and bought a new, fresh, clean cutting board and knife (this part is important) and cut the asparagus and separate it on a different plate.
