Directions

  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add asparagus; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add chicken; cook, stirring, for 4 minutes.

Tips

Ingredient Notes: Chicken tenders, virtually fat-free, are a strip of rib meat typically found attached to the underside of the chicken breast, but they can also be purchased separately. Four 1-ounce tenders will yield a 3-ounce cooked portion. Tenders are perfect for quick stir-fries, chicken satay or kid-friendly breaded “chicken fingers.”

Chile-garlic sauce is a blend of ground red chiles, garlic and vinegar and is commonly used to add heat and flavor to Asian soups, sauces and stir-fries. It can be found in the Asian-food section of large supermarkets. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 year.

Overall A Great Meal! This dish is awesome for a super quick delicious meal. I just made it for the first time changing it to servings for six people but the portions were TINY. I ended up just serving four people haha. The flavors were all awesome together but I think next time I won't add as much oyster sauce. It was a little too salty for my personal taste. Overall great though one of our new favorites! Pros: Easy quick healthy Cons: small portions too salty Read More

Excellent dish! My whole family loved this dish even my 3 year old. I added shitaki mushrooms and left out the scallions (my wife forgot them) and it still came out delicious plus we love mushrooms. I also used 1.5 tbsp of oyster sauce and 2.5 tbsp of Tabasco Garlic sauce to give it more flavor and a little extra kick. I saw some comments that added garlic into theirs. I was hesitant to do that but I love garlic so I may try that next time. Overall this is a very tasty stir-fry. It's also very light on ingredients but more than filling. Pros: Easy healthy and quick Cons: Nothing bad to say Read More

Made this the other night and was less than impressed. There was absolutely no flavor to this recipe as written. I ended up doctoring it with more oyster sauce some fish sauce soy sauce and siracha to get it to a level where it actually tasted like something. Definitely won't be making this again. Read More

Great dish I don't care for oyster sauce so I used 2 tblsp soy sauce instead. I could barely taste it. The sesame oil is very overpowering (yet delicious) so if you don't have that don't bother...it makes the dish. I added two cloves crushed garlic and will next time as well. I forgot to buy scallions so I just used like 1/4 cup largely diced onion and it was still great. Pros: flavorful Read More

I WILL make this dish again! The flavors were still tantalizing my tastebuds after dinner. I added a minced clove of garlic and increased the chili-garlic sauce to 2 tsp for added flavor. Pros: Healthy never tasted so good! Cons: Need to double the batch next time! Read More

I loved it! I thought scallions were the same as shallots at the time and cooked this with four shallots. Turned out excellent in my opinion. I really can't stand ginger so I used more garlic. I served it over diced steamed cabbage and bean sprouts and topped with sesame seeds. Will definitely be cooking again. Margaret Vancouver BC Read More

We loved this dish. It was SO simple to make. My only change was to leave out the oyster sauce. I just didn't think it would add enough to be worth the trouble. When I find a recipe my family loves I print it out and add to my own cookbook. Sharon Little Rock Read More

Easy and loved in our house. During the summer I made this with fresh green beans from the garden. At least double the sauce when served with rice or serve over soba noodles. Added a little chicken broth to make more sauce. Sandy Portland OR Read More

My husband loves this dish so much that he requests it at least twice a week! I add a touch of hoisin sauce maybe some Rooster sauce if I'm feeling spicy. I always add chopped bok choy or kale as well. Served over brown rice this one is a family favorite. Read More

By accident I used 2 TBSP of the chili garlic sauce instead of 1 tsp and I was afraid it would be too spicy for my kids. Not at all! All 5 of us gave it a 9 or 10 out of 10. I made this on the fly and didn't have pistachios so I toasted whole almonds and they were perfect. Seriously as tasty as a Chinese restaurant but SO easy and much healthier. Read More

I didn't use the garlic-chile sauce because my 5 year old is very picky. Instead I added some minced garlic and grated ginger. I also couldn't find pistachios so I used roasted and salted chopped walnuts. Delish! It was wonderful and I am planning on trying the same recipe but with broccoli and beef. My husband was blown away at the authentic taste. Read More
