20-Minute Healthy Chicken & Asparagus Stir-fry Recipe: Better & Faster Than Take-out

"This stir-fry is as simple as it gets – for those nights that you really want to just order take-out, but then you realize that you can actually get this on the table quicker than delivery or driving to grab said take-out," says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "Then afterward, you feel SO GOOD knowing that you invested the 15 minutes needed to get something highly nutritious (and tasty) on the table."

This easy chicken and asparagus stir fry recipe uses healthy, wholesome ingredients: fresh asparagus, garlic, ginger, ground chicken, rice vinegar, coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, green onions and sesame seeds. The chicken stir fry cooks up in about 15 minutes!

Serve this clean-eating chicken dinner with your favorite side dishes, though it is a complete meal in itself. You could add a side of brown rice or quinoa. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 tablespoons avocado oil (divided)
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2-inch knob ginger, peeled and finely chopped

Here's how to make it:
