This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Orange Chicken and Asparagus

This was a really quick and extremely flavorful dinner we made the other night. It took under 20 minutes, guilt free, and satisfying.


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 4 oz of chicken sliced into strips
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups chopped asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • juice and zest of 1 orange

Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 

Sauté 4 ounces chicken, sliced into 1/2-inch strips; 1 minced garlic clove; and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 7 minutes. 

Add 2 cups chopped asparagus and cook 3 minutes more. 

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, and juice and zest of 1 orange. Add to skillet and cook 1 minute. 

Serve over rice.
