Quick Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-fry

  • 1/3 c. chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 dried tomato, snipped finely
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 c. fresh asparagus pieces
  • 1 1/2 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 2 c. shrimp, peeled and cooked

In a small jar, combine the chicken broth, cornstarch, thyme and tomato. Screw the top on tightly and shake vigorously to mix well. Set aside.

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Stir fry the asparagus for 4-6 minutes or until it is crisp tender. Add the mushrooms and shrimp and stir-fry for 2 minutes more.

Shake the jar with the chicken broth mixture again and pour into the skillet. Cook and stir the mixture until thickened and bubbly. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes and serve alone or over hot cooked rice.
