The results? It turned out really delicious, but not quite as yummy as the restaurant version. It's still unique and definitely worth making and really is sooo good!
You will start by cutting up some asparagus into about 1 inch pieces (exact recipe to follow)
Cut up some chicken into very thin pieces, cutting at an angle.
Mix up a marinade with mayo, garlic, cumin, soy sauce, red pepper flakes and coat the asparagus, sun dried tomatoes and chicken...
Put a little oil in a hot skillet and add the mixture. Cook until the chicken is cooked through. It shouldn't take too long if you sliced the chicken super thin! Don't cook it too long or all of that yummy sauce will evaporate and it will end up too dry. If it seems like it needs more liquid, you could add a bit of water.
Serve up some rice. Brown is the healthiest option, but this sushi rice makes more of a "sticky rice" consistency for a treat!
Dish it up and sprinkle with toasted almond slices.
So easy, yummy and fairly healthy! A good way to get the kiddos to try asparagus!
