Stir fries are the best busy weeknight dinner option - you just can't beat getting your daily serving of veggies and protein in one convenient bowl. Lemony Chicken Stir Fry with Asparagus is a new addition to my roster, and it's just as delicious as it is easy to make.
This recipe is packed with flavor, and you won't be able to get enough of the sauce that's great for covering a bed of rice. For those no- or low-carb diets, this stir fry tastes just as good on its own as well. Don't forget to top with lemon zest for a zing you just can't beat!
