Step 1

Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high heat until hot (a drop of water will sizzle when dropped on the hot wok or skillet). Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and swirl to coat pan. Sprinkle chicken with salt and stir fry until browned and cooked through (5 minutes or so). Transfer to a plate.

Step 2

Add remaining oil (1 1/2 teaspoons) to pan and swirl to coat pan and add ginger and garlic. Stir fry until fragrant (30 seconds). Stir in vegetables (asparagus - bell peppers) and the water, cook, covered, until vegetables are crisp tender (5 minutes).

Step 3

Stir in black bean sauce, chili oil and the chicken. Cook stirring frequently until chicken is heated through - 2-5 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Lots of good flavor for this healthy chicken! I think the asparagus is such a good veggie option and goes perfectly. Because the family voted to have sauce to go with it and to serve over some brown rice, I added some water and additional black bean sauce, garlic, and ginger, to transform it into a flavorful sauce. Added a bit of rice flour to slightly thicken it up. Very good and delicious meal, ellie, and Thx so much for sharing! Made it for FYC.
