Chicken and Asparagus Lemon Stir Fry
This shit is so good. SkinnyTaste had me really questioning her ability when I tried to make her black bean soup recipe the other week, but she hath redeemed herself in thine eyes with this easy and fucking scrumptious ‘cipe. I broke it into 3 servings (even though it “makes 4,” but fuck that) and ate it for lunch all week and it was S’GOOD. I also added brown jasmine rice to each serving because, again, fuck that.

Kosher salt, to taste
