  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken, garlic, and red pepper flakes until chicken is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add asparagus and cook until bright green and starting to become tender, about 3 more minutes.
  2. Whisk soy sauce, honey, orange juice, and orange zest together in a small bowl; pour over chicken. Cook and stir until sauce coats chicken and asparagus, about 1 more minute. Serve over cooked brown rice.

We liked it, added a little bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce and some mushrooms and zucchini just because I have an abundance right now. I may cut the pepper flakes in the future for the little one, but it was good for the hubby and I.
