This dish is healthy, delicious and so easy to make. Asparagus is one of my favourite vegetables. It’s low in calories and is very low in sodium. It is a good source of vitamin, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fiber. I always keep some Asparagus in my fridge. Whenever I don’t what to cook or want to make a quick meal, I will never go wrong with this Asparagus Stir-fried Chicken. Serve it along with some rice and you have a complete Asparagus Stir-fried Chicken meal in 20 minutes.
