Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 12 oz. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch-matchstick strips
  • 2 cups red or green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • Rice for serving*
In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over high heat until hot. Add the chicken and stir-fry for about 4 minutes, or until no longer pink and the juices run clear. Transfer to a plate. Add the asparagus, bell pepper, onion, sugar, and black pepper to the skillet. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Return the chicken to the skillet. Sprinkle with the soy sauce; cover and cook, for about 1 minute, or until mixture begins to steam. Serve over rice.
