this recipe is reaaaally similar to this chicken and asparagus stir fry. i’ve found that when i’m busy or in a rush, the easiest place to start on a weeknight dinner is with a protein and vegetable. when i have a little more time i love to roast veggies (SO much tastier than your standard salad), but when i don’t have the luxury of time a stir fry gives me a similar result in about 20 minutes. so meals like this have become a pretty big staple in our household, i try to at least alternate chicken and steak, and switch up the veggies a bit. some nights with rice, and some not.
