Place steamer in pan; cover and steam chicken 10 minutes. Add asparagus and peas to steamer; cover and cook 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.

Step 2

Combine cilantro and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Serve sauce with chicken and vegetables.

So  just to kick it up a bit and not add calorie I added toasted sesame seeds and squeezed a bit of fresh lemon juice over everything at the end of steaming.  I also put a a few cloves of smashed garlic in while steaming...

Quick, easy, we had dinner on the table in 15 minutes. Make sure not to over steam the chicken. We used fresh french green beans and snap peas because the asparagus was not in season

Okay, so this meal seems like it would be bland and uber-healthy. However, only one is false (and its not the uber-healthy part). The dipping sauce should be doubled because it is AMAZING! If you like that Chinese food take out sauce, you'll love this! The chicken was so fork tender! The veggies were perfect (I added some of the Napa cabbage I had left over from the Asian Turkey cabbage recipe) which I threw in and steamed perfectly. And-- it cooks all in one pot!

This was tasty and quick. I used asparagus only, and marinated the chicken for 30 minutes in Korean bbq sauce. Don't know that it added much. The dipping sauce was very good. I would make this again.
