Chicken and Shrimp with Asparagus

Once again, Dorothy Huang's cooking class has come through. I adapted her cashew chicken recipe to suit this one and it worked great, except I had to cook my shrimp separately since C won't eat them. He came downstairs, spied the shrimp and said with a sneer, "I knew I smelled something." Miss F loved it as well, she didn't get to have any shrimp (not until she turns one!), but she loved the rice, chicken and asparagus. I would have added other veggies, but asparagus were 99 cents a pound at the Kroger grocery store wars, so they went solo. They worked great with the sweetness of the shrimp.

Chicken and Shrimp with Asparagus

1/2 pound chicken, cut into 3/4" pieces
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and cleaned
3/4 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 3/4" pieces
1/4 onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
2 tablespoons oil

Seasoning sauce:
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon sherry
1 tablespoon corn startch

1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sherry
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon corn startch

Whisk together the seasoning sauce ingredients until combined. Add the chicken, marinate for 15 minutes, set aside. Whisk the sauce ingredients until combined, set aside.

Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger to the wok. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken and marinade, stir fry for 3 minutes. Add the asparagus and shrimp, stir fry for another 2 to 3 minutes, until shrimp are pink. Add the sauce and stir fry for about a minute to coat and thicken it. Serve over rice.
Pin It Now!

mmm...I'm so hungry now after reading this post! I love shrimp in a stir fry and it sounds like it would go really well with the asparagus.

The meal got all thumbs up at my house, so thank you for sharing!
