Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus spear (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Method

Cut asparagus on diagonal into 1-inch (2.5 cm) lengths; set aside.

Cut chicken into 1-1/2 inch (4 cm) cubes; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining oil to pan; fry onion, garlic and thyme, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes.

Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan. Add asparagus and chicken stock; cover and simmer until asparagus is tender-crisp, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together lemon juice, cornstarch and lemon rind; add to pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute.
