Chicken and Asparagus Stirfry

Usual deal - this serves two. Double for more.

1 chicken breast - cut into stirfry chunks
1 onion sliced
1/2 red capsicum sliced
bunch of asparagus chopped into chunks
clove garlic crushed
teaspoon (or slightly more) fresh ginger grated
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon low salt soy sauce

Stirfry chicken and onion in a little oil.
Add vegies and garlic/ginger and continue to stirfry.
Add the lime and soy mixture, continue to stirfry until the volume of liquid is reduced and the asparagus is tender.

Serve on rice if you wish but it doesn't really need it if you are trying to cut carbs.

The original recipe called for fresh basil in place of the soy but I didn't have any. Adding some extra chilli or a swig of sweet chilli sauce to the sauce mix would be nice too. You could substitute green beans for the asparagus.

This recipe was really fast to cook and prepare (making it perfect for after gym) and was really delicious.
