I whipped this up in 15 minutes to feed my muscles after an intense training session.  Simple recipe with ingredients you may have in your fridge and pantry.  Vegetarians can easily substitute chicken with tempeh or even portobello mushrooms.

  • 6oz chicken breast (raw)
  • 7 asparagus spears
  • 1/2 cup brown rice (cooked)*
  • spray coconut oil
  • sesame seeds for texture and added flavor
  • Sauce:
    • 3/4 – 1 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
    • juice from 1 lemon

Steps
  1. Chop chicken into small pieces. Cut off the white bottom of the asparagus spears then chop the remaining spear into pieces.
  2. In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  3. Spray a nonstick skillet with coconut oil and set on medium high heat.
  4. Add chicken to the pan and cook for between 5 – 7 minutes or until the pieces are 85% cooked.
  5. Toss in chopped asparagus and stir with a wooden spatula.  Allow the asparagus to sear for about 2 minutes.
