Chicken Asparagus Stir fry

Yet another stir fry experience at Stir crazy restaurant. This is one restaurant I can just walk in without any formalities and everyone can find there own perfect stir. The specialty about this restaurant is that cooking is done in front of us and we can create our own stir with our favorite veggies, meat and sauces, chosen from a wide variety. They give us 2 bowls, one for the veggies and the other for the sauce. We can literally pile up the bowl with as much as veggie as we want, many times I have seen people over loading the bowl so much that if they take another step, the veggies would start falling, including my darling hubby, lol. Also they have a variety of sauces, I always stand before the sauce bar confused on which one to pick. They have both Chinese and Thai sauces, for instance, Thai BBQ, spicy basil, schezwan, sweet and sour, teriyaki, Red curry, peanut, the list goes on.

After having so many stir fry experiences, I finally figured out that spicy basil is my favorite sauce, may be because I love my stir fry to be spicy. After we have the veggies and sauces ready, we hand it over to the chef. Now starts the stir magic. The way the chef make the stirring sound and the flame leaping from the wok, is definitely a great fun to watch for both kids and adults.

After a long day, I always prefer an express dinner. One express dish that is on my top list is Stir fry. With or without meat, stir fry tastes good for me. Stir fry is really a versatile dish, in which we can alter the ingredients and sauces according to our wish. We could literally add all kind of veggies to this, also any kind of meat goes well with this or even shrimp. So this time I used asparagus as the veggie. Most of the time I roast asparagus in the oven and hence it acts as the side dish for lunch or dinner. So to make a difference I stir fried asparagus with the chicken and added the sauces that were available in my kitchen. To make it more rich I even sprinkled some almonds on it. I had it with vermicelli pasta.

Whenever I make stir fry I make it generously so that I can have it for the next day. I love to have my stir fry spicy so I added sambal oelek. While making stir fry I do make the stirring sound, just to have the restaurant effect, I intentionally make a few extra stir, that’s when my hubby would realize that he is going to have stir fry for dinner. Unfortunately I am not yet an expert in making the flame. I am glad that I am ignorant about this stunt, otherwise I would have definitely tried this and would have set my house on fire.
