Lemon Garlic Ginger Chicken

It seems like all I’ve been doing the last few days is cooking and that might be true, but I love it! And I especially love lemon and garlic chicken. I tried to photograph the process this time. One of the rules for my life is to “Enjoy the Process” so I wanted to make sure I didn’t leave anything out. I found a recipe on Pinterest and tweaked it. Hopefully, I’ll remember what I did. ;)

This is Lemon Garlic Ginger Chicken with Asparagus.



For the marinade:
– pepper
– chopped garlic
– lemon juice
– ginger

One tablespoon of garlic and ginger and a whole bunch of lemon juice and pepper. Let sit for a couple of hours.


Cut chicken in tiny cubes. This helps if the chicken is a little frozen.


Cut asparagus tips off and then in half.


Cook the asparagus first.While cooking, sprinkle salt, lemon juice, and a little soy sauce. Steam for 3-4 minutes and push to the side.

Add the chicken.


Cook the chicken until all pink is gone. I like garlic, a lot, so I sprinkled some garlic powder on it while it was cooking.

Mix together when chicken is cooked and let it sauté for about a minute or so.


Serve and enjoy!


I added a fresh salad with ginger dressing and some jasmine rice to go along with it.
