Orange Chicken with Asparagus

I thought that this would be a new take on another chicken dish and it did not disappoint. I love the asian flavor of this and the asparagus was wonderful with it... I enjoyed this meal, even with all the fighting to get my kids to eat the asparagus! :)

Orange Chicken with Asparagus

1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 ounces chicken, sliced into strips
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cups asparagus, chopped
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 orange, zested and juiced

Heat sesame oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken, garlic and red pepper flakes for about 7 minutes. Add asparagus and cook 3 minutes more. In small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, sesame seeds, orange juice and zest. Add to skillet and cook 1 minute. Serve over brown rice.
