Tonight’s dinner is packed with flavor and only takes 30 minutes to make! Try this ginger soy chicken stir fry tonight.
I love to cook but, with our crazy schedule, I often need to fit dinner preparation into a super short period of time if my family has any hope of actually eating dinner! A stir fry is such an quick and easy way to make a meal that is full of flavor and includes vegetables too! This ginger soy chicken stir fry, which includes spring’s perfect vegetable, is a current favorite in our house and we make it several times a month!
Because my dinner prep time is so limited, I love finding products like Dorot herbs! With Dorot, I don’t have to worry about washing, chopping, peeling or cleaning fresh herbs. Plus, they are perfectly portioned and frozen so I also limit waste too since I often end up having to throw out some of the fresh herbs I buy because they go bad before I can use them! Dorot ginger is the key to this amazing ginger soy chicken stir fry and it pairs perfect with asparagus for spring!
Ingredients for Ginger Soy Chicken Stir Fry:
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cubes Dorot ginger
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp oil
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 cup asparagus pieces
1 cube Dorot basil
Green onions, chopped
Let’s Make It:
1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, Dorot ginger and sesame oil. Add chicken pieces and marinate for 15 minutes.
2. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in large pan over medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving it for later, and add to pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is browned.
3. Add asparagus and leftover marinade. Bring to a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in Dorot basil. Simmer for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
Asparagus is probably my favorite spring vegetable and I love cooking with it for both main dishes and as a side dish. Both Dorot ginger and basil help bring out the amazing spring taste in this stir fry recipe while also making it super quick and easy to finish the recipe and get it to the dinner table!
We usually serve this ginger soy chicken with steamed white rice. I think it would be great on its own or even with a vegetable rice or pasta too.
This chicken stir fry would be great with broccoli instead of asparagus too!
