Asparagus Chicken with Ginger & Oyster Sauce

(recipe courtesy of NutriFit - www.nutrifitonline.com

Ingredients:

1 1/3 lb. boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

3 tsp. Canola Oil, divided

5 tsp. Cornstarch, divided

1 Tbsp. Dry Sherry

½ Cup fat free, reduced sodium Chicken Broth

1 lb. fresh Asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1” pieces

1 tsp. Ginger, peeled and minced

1 Clove Garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. Oyster Sauce

4 tsp. reduced sodium Soy Sauce, divided

1 tsp. Sesame Oil

2 Tbsp. Water

1 Medium Yellow Onion, peeled and cut into 8 wedges

Fresh Cilantro leaves for garnish

Directions:

1.   Combine 2 teaspoons cornstarch, 2 teaspoons soy sauce, sherry, minced ginger, and sesame oil in large bowl; mix well. Add the chicken; stir to coat well. Let stand for 30 minutes.

2.   Combine the remaining 3 teaspoons of cornstarch, remaining 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, chicken broth, and oyster sauce in small bowl; mix well. Set aside.

3.   Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken mixture; stir-fry until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes. Remove from wok; set aside.

4.   Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil in the wok. Add onion and asparagus; stir-fry 30 seconds. Add water; cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until asparagus is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. 

Return the chicken to the wok. Stir the chicken broth mixture; add to the wok with chicken and vegetable mixture. Cook until the sauce boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Garnish, if desired.
