Chicken with asparagus, an easy recipe: let’s start by cutting the chicken into small cubes, removing the bones, the hard parts and the fat. Then, put it in a bowl to marinate with oil, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, crushed garlic, salt and the pepper mix for about half an hour.

Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus: this typically spring vegetable is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many recipes. First remove the hard ends of the asparagus, at this point cut them into slices and let them boil for 2 minutes in slightly salted water. Finally drain and rinse them under cold water to fix the color and keep them crunchy.

Heat a large non-stick pan, add the chicken with the marinade and sauté for about 8 minutes. When the meat is golden brown, add the asparagus and continue cooking for another 4 minutes. Once the fire is out, remove the garlic, finally prinkle with sesame seeds and…serve immediately! Success guaranteed!
