  1. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry until no longer pink on the outside, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes more.
  2. Add the asparagus, lemon zest, and lemon juice and toss to combine. Cook until the asparagus is tender, about 2 minutes, then stir in the soy sauce.
  3. Serve the stir-fry over rice with more lemon zest on top.
