  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed
  • 1 pound asparagus cut in one-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce low sodium
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • roasted black sesame seeds optional garnish
  • scallions optional garnish


  • Heat a large wok or skillet over medium high-heat and spray with cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle chicken cubes with salt and pepper then add to the hot pan. Sauté until golden brown, about 7-9 minutes, then remove from pan; set aside.
  • To the same hot pan, add asparagus and stir-fry until bright green, about 3-4 minutes depending on the thickness of your asparagus.
  • While asparagus is cooking, whisk together remaining ingredients in a small bowl: soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and chili paste.
  • Return chicken to the pan and pour in the sauce. Stir-fry until heated through and sauce becomes fragrant, 1-2 additional minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions before serving.
