My kids are on Spring Break and I was FORCED to also take a break because there’s no working when the whiny 4 year old and screaming 7 year old tag team you…

…precious little gals. 

On the bright side, we had cereal for dinner thrice this week, and mangoes for breakfast, lunch, and all in between. #winning

HOW TO MAKE STIR FRY SAUCE

This rice vinegar is sweet, it’s salty, it’s acidic, and it’s just perfect for recipes with an Asian flair.

Blending exotic flavors and textures for a delicious Asian-inspired meal is way easier than you might think, and this chicken stir fry speaks to that.

Okay, BUT! My favorite part of this meal?! The one that can’t be ignored? The asparagus!! I love that veg way too much. And here’s the thing: when you pair asparagus with shiitake mushrooms, it’s kind of wild. In a good way. The textures and flavors all work together resulting in one happy mouth and tummy.

GRAPESEED OIL FOR STIR FRY

I’d also like to tell you that I used STAR’s Grapeseed Oil in place of vegetable oil here, and guess what?! It was awesome! Grapeseed Oil is recommended for high heat cooking, which is how we prepare a stir fry, and it has very little flavor, allowing the flavors of the food to stand out.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN STIR FRY

I’d now like to ask you to grab your wok or a big skillet and get on this. As always, don’t worry about time because this will come together in 20 to 25ish minutes with prep time. It’s a matter of tossing the chicken with cornstarch, cutting up the veggies, and making some sauce on the side.

When all is said and done, you’ll find yourself standing above the wok with a fork-in-hand and just going at it.

No? Just me?!? Ah well. Food straight from the skillet tastes so much better. Try it!
