STEP 1
Cook White Rice in a rice cooker. If you do not have one, heat two cups of water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and add the rice. Give it a quick stir and cover the pan with a lid.
STEP 2
Cook for 18-25 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the rice is tender. Once done, remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork.
STEP 3
While the rice is cooking, finely chop the Shallot. Mince the Ginger and Garlic. Chop the Cashew Nuts. Remove the tough outer portion and finely slice the Lemongrass.
STEP 4
Snap the tough ends off of the Asparagus, and slice the asparagus diagonally.
STEP 5
Cut the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast into strips.
STEP 6
Heat 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season the chicken with Salt and Pepper and add to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, turning frequently.
STEP 7
Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer it to a bowl. Turn the heat down to medium-high and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the asparagus, cooking for 3 minutes, tossing occasionally.
STEP 8
Add the shallot and lemongrass, cook for 1 minute. Then add the ginger and garlic – cook for another minute, stirring frequently.
STEP 9
Add the Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar, and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the chicken. Simmer for 1 minute to heat through.
STEP 10
Spoon the lemongrass chicken and asparagus over the rice and serve.
