|Ease of Prep:||Easy|
|1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil|
|1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus , tough ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces|
|1 pound chicken tenders (see Ingredient Note), cut into bite-size pieces|
|4 scallions , trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces|
|2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger|
|1 tablespoon oyster-flavored sauce|
|1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce (see Ingredient Note)|
|1/4 cup shelled salted pistachios , coarsely chopped|
- Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add asparagus; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add chicken; cook, stirring, for 4 minutes. Stir in scallions, ginger, oyster sauce and chile-garlic sauce; cook, stirring, until the chicken is juicy and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more. Stir in pistachios and serve immediately.
Ingredient Notes: Chicken tenders, virtually fat-free, are a strip of rib meat typically found attached to the underside of the chicken breast, but they can also be purchased separately. Four 1-ounce tenders
will yield a 3-ounce cooked portion. Tenders are perfect for quick stir-fries, chicken satay or kid-friendly breaded “chicken fingers.”
Chile-garlic sauce is a blend of ground red chiles, garlic and vinegar and is commonly used to add heat and flavor to Asian soups, sauces and stir-fries. It can be found in the Asian-food section of large supermarkets. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 year.
